To all of you wonderful prospies, parents, and plenty more, welcome! My name is Brian and I’m a STEM-studying outdoor enthusiast from a small town in CT. I plan to major in Engineering Physics with an Econ minor, but I have over a year to explore before I declare anything. I’m also a club hockey player, avid hiker, aspiring rock climber, and occasional voice in on-campus politics. I’m a strong advocate for cold and snowy weather, so if you ever need some convincing, I’d be happy to talk!
The section I chose for Writing 5, the freshman writing seminar. It's helped me find a new interest in journalism, and I've traveled all around the Northeast to conduct interviews and write awesome articles.
How many hours of sleep do Dartmouth students get on average?
I personally get 6-7, which is surprisingly probably more than I got in high school. Most of my friends probably get around 7-8 hours in per night on average. - Brian '21 // I'm the kind of person who can't function without at least 7 hours of sleep, so I typically get 7-8 hours of sleep most nights and roughly 6-7 during finals. I know my experience may be quite different from other Dartmouth students', but I've never had to pull an all-nighter for academic reasons. - Colleen '19 // 9 hours! - Julianna '20 // 12 hours on weekend, 5-6 hours if I go straight to bed after finishing my homework during the week, and 3-4 hours if I hang out with friends after homework or during midterms. - Autumn '21
