FallOn CampusFavorite Class: HIST 003: Europe in Medieval and Early Modern Times
My favourite part about this class was the structure of it! Three times a week, we had a large class lecture. Then, our x-hour was used for a small group discussion with our professor.
I loved how interactive this class was. Tt was a lecture based class, but we often had in-class building activities and one large project - building a cardboard chair!
Our professor made the class! Professor Tine was so enthusiastic about the content and material in this course, that it made me excited to come to class and learn eachday
I spend my first year summer at home with my family and travelling to visit old friends, new friends from Dartmouth, and extended family members. I spent a lot of my summer down south in Florida and Georgia, escaping the Canadian cold.
FallOn CampusFavorite Class: REL 60: Protestant Reformations.
Sophomore fall I was on campus taking classes and training for the upcoming Track and Field season. My favourite class was taught by 3 different professors from 3 different departments, looking at the Protestant Reformation from an art history angle, music angle, and of course religious perspective.
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: SART 65: Architecture 1
I spent sophomore winter on campus in Hanover taking four classes and competing in our indoor track and field season. The most interesting class that I took this term was an introduction architecture class where we actually got to build things in the wood shop!
This term, I am taking four classes. Here's why...
Alternate Campus Views: Winter Edition
Sometimes the best views on campus are the ones that are rarely documented! Here's some of my favourite views from the last week.
My 18W Classes
The start of winter term means the beginning of three new, exciting classes. Whether you are taking a class for your major or to fulfill a graduation requirement, it is important to elect classes where you are interested in the topic.
- No. 1
REL 5: Early Christianity – The New Testament
In this lecture style class, we are discussing early Christianity by studying the New Testament. We are reading early philosophers, such as Plato, to give us an understanding of how some people viewed religion at the time of the events in the New Testament.
- No. 2
SART 65: Architecture 1
As a Human Centered Design minor, I am interesting in studying architecture and how it pertains to design and planning. Because I need three art credits for my minor, I’ve decided to complete the three-class architecture sequence. In this class, we have several projects that help us develop our design skills.
- No. 3
ENGL 53.36: Game of Thrones – Re-Imagining Medieval History as an Allegory of the Present
In order to graduate, every Dartmouth student must complete a literature class (better know as a “LIT” distrib). For my LIT distrib, I’ve decided to take a class that focuses on the Game of Thrones series.
This Week in SART 65
Welcome to Week 4! It's crazy to think that winter term is already half way over! The days are flying by and I am really enjoying my classes. In one of my classes, SART 65 (Architecture 1), we had our first project due on Tuesday...
Things to do at Dartmouth: Winter Edition
Baby, it's cold outside! But don't let the cold deter you from having fun on campus. Each season in Hanover is beautiful in its own way, and winter is no exception.

The DOC also oversees 25 kilometers of cross country ski trails in Hanover and the surrounding area. Once again, visit the DOC House at Occom Pond to rent skis and buy a day pass.

Hit the slopes at the Dartmouth Ski-Way!
Steeped in Dartmouth tradition, the Dartmouth Skiway is home to more than 30 national champions. Skiers of all levels can enjoy the Skiway, as lessons are also available. The Skiway is a short 30-min drive from campus and a great way to spend a weekend.
Favourite Photos of 2017
As the calendar year comes to an end, I thought I would round up my favourite photos of Dartmouth from 2017.
- No. 1
Boloco is kind of like Chipotle and a great place to grab food if the Collis lunch line is really long. You can order burritos or bowls and they have amazing smoothies and milkshakes. Boloco offers a wide variety of different options, from gluten-free to vegetarian. My favourite order at Boloco is called "The Summer".
- No. 2
Molly’s is a classic Dartmouth experience. The restaurant is decorated in Ivy League memorabilia and it’s so cool to learn a little bit about Dartmouth history while you eat. Molly’s is known among students for it’s incredible Mac and Cheese. In addition, most of their ingredients are from local farms and markets.
- No. 3
Salt Hill Pub
Salt Hill is my first stop when I’m in need of some “comfort food.” From stew to burgers to loaded nachos, this is a great restaurant to visit when you are very hungry! They also hold weekly trivia nights, which is a fun week-night activity.
5 Ways to Choose a College Without Visiting the Campus
Choosing to come to Dartmouth was the most life-changing decision that I have made to date. Deciding to move away from home (to a different country!) to attend college was a huge deciding factor in my college search.
