Club Puck on the Road

Club Puck on the Road

Dartmouth has brought me to some crazy places, and I’m sure that there’s even more to come (like my spring break climbing trip to Nevada, but that’s a story for another time). But on this occasion, my extracurriculars brought me somewhere a little closer to […]

It’s Me!

It’s Me!

Sup y’all! My name is Chiemeka Njoku. I am an ’18 — a senior — and before Dartmouth, I lived in Dallas, Texas. Before Texas, I lived in Edison, New Jersey, and before that, I lived in Lagos, Nigeria, so where am I from? (Where […]

Finding Dartmouth Connections All Over the World

Finding Dartmouth Connections All Over the World

Whenever I travel, I typically don a green Dartmouth baseball cap or my “Big Green” fleece. I do this for two reasons, the first being practicality (I swear that fleece is the softest, warmest item of clothing I own) and the second being my hope […]

Two Weeks in Southeast Asia

Two Weeks in Southeast Asia

As some of you may know, Dartmouth has an especially long six week winter break that we call “winterim”. Most years I use the break as an opportunity to return home and binge watch several series on Netflix. But since this is my last winterim, […]

Dreams of Sedona

A Cabin and Trail break trip to remember. I’m a Northeasterner in every regard; from the people to the climate, every aspect of it has always seemed to suit me like no place else. I can’t say that I really had to opportunity to travel […]

Is It Too Late Now To Say Sorry?

Is It Too Late Now To Say Sorry?

After 25 hours of travel (thanks, winter storm Grayson!) I’ve finally made it to campus after a much-needed winter break. This break, however, made me realize that I’m less than a year and a half away from graduation. Needless to say, I had a mid-mid-life […]

(Win)ter Break

(Win)ter Break

Thrilled as I was to leave behind school bells for stuffing and jingle bells, classes hung heavy over high school vacations. Master of procrastination, I avoided AP US History chapters or math problem sets until the last moment possible (when all hell broke loose). Nevertheless, […]

A Year in Review

A Year in Review

Happy New Year! As we look back at 2017, it’s incredible to think that I’ve spent the last 365 days as a Dartmouth student. A majority of that time was spent on campus in Hanover or with friends that I met at school. Here’s a […]

A Winter Wonderland

A Winter Wonderland

Dartmouth is an incredible place to be in the winter. Yes, the temperatures may dip below zero, but can you honestly say you wouldn’t like to see images like this everyday? For those of you who have never seen real snow, you’re in for a […]

How Dartmouth has spoiled me

How Dartmouth has spoiled me

I’m back again, peeps! My break was awesome, as I could both go home and travel to New Orleans, Boston, and New York with my friends! Other than the fact that I didn’t do any of my winter reading, so now I’m low-key cramming an […]
