Emma Rodriguez's D-PlanWhat's a D-Plan?
FallOn CampusFavorite Class: WRIT 5 - Food For Thought
This class looked at food from every possible angle: agriculture, regulation/policy, marketing, nutrition, animal rights, and much more. This class drastically changed the way I think about food and where it comes from.
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: WGSS - Gender in Islam
Professor Ayubi is one of the best professors in the WGST department and led an incredible class on themes of gender/sexuality in Islam. Even those not interested in religion as a major couldn't help but be fascinated in this class.
SpringOn CampusFavorite Class: WGST 16 - Contemporary Issues in Feminism
This class was intense in that it revealed systems of oppression and violence that exist all around us. The objective of the nal project was to make a difference in public awareness of those systems.
For most of the summer I worked at a day camp, but the most important part of my summer was the weeks I spent in Haiti, visiting the little boy I hope to adopt at the orphanage where he lives. It is and has been the highlight of my last 4 summers.
FallOn CampusFavorite Class: SART - Drawing 1
Drawing I is an opportunity for students without much experience in the visual arts to get comfortable in the studio. It's time consuming, but a great creative outlet, and the results at the end of the term are worth it.
While I haven't completed this course yet, it is my favorite class this term so far because of the focus on both global current events and Dartmouth-specific issues.
Trips: the good, the bad, and the ugly
When I first heard about the tradition of First Year Trips - where Dartmouth sends a bunch of freshmen out into the woods to do a variety of outdoor activities together before anyone has even met before - I was very intimidated.
Need a study playlist?
Finals approach. Stress is in the air. Good spots in the library are becoming more and more difficult to come by, and KAF lines seem to stretch for miles.
How To: Vegetarian at Dartmouth
I speak from experience when I say being a vegetarian/vegan (aka veganitarian) is not easy, especially when you make the move from home to college.
Winter Carnival ideas for people who don't like winter
Unpopular Dartmouth opinion: I am not a huge fan of the cold. I don't know how to ski or snowboard, and I think it's absolutely frigid when the temps drop below 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
Who the heck is Emma Rodriguez?
Hey! Thanks for clicking on this post that's literally all about me! I promise I won't bore you to death with a long autobiography, but just tell you the ~important stuff~ so you know a bit more about who I am when you read my future (i.e.
