After considering similar schools, I decided on Dartmouth for its outing club, study abroad program, psychology and brain sciences department, and—let’s face it—the dining hall’s infamous chocolate chip cookies. While my exact major plans are still a work in progress, I am currently thinking history with minors in anthropology and creative writing with a focus (much to my parents’ chagrin) on the pre-modern era.
After years of focusing on the modern age, I am thrilled to learn about time periods and places missing from my mental map. I am also loving the fun facts (did you know Dholavira, a city in the Indus Valley civilization, had flush toilets in 2000 BC?).
Interning at a London academic publishing house specialized in history and international relations -- I found it through another Dartmouth student who had previously interned there!
If I have a bike that's bought from Walmart but needs fixing, can I bring it to you to fix it?
Hi! Yes! Dartmouth's Sustainability Office runs Dartmouth Bikes, a student-organized repair group that offers individual appointments and pop-up bike shops (called "PUBS") for any bike on campus. Individual appointments, which can be scheduled here, cost $5 per hour, while PUBS charges no fee. For both services you need to pay for any new parts they install, but that costs very little as well. If your tires need air, there is a pump outside Collis available for free. Hope this helps! Wishing you many happy bike rides!
