To all you prospies, parents, and plenty more, welcome! My name is Brian—I'm a double-major in Economics and Engineering Physics from a small town in northwestern CT. In my free time, I'm involved in rock climbing, Club Hockey, and writing for different publications across campus. Plus, I'm pretty heavily involved in my Greek House—something which I often tend to detail in my posts—and so I'm always happy to answer questions about the Dartmouth student life in all its different capacities!

Many people have even gotten patents and started businesses from their groups in this class – it's an incredible opportunity and an amazing learning experience.
I always try to stay in contact with my friends back home, it’s a great way to avoid homesickness and remember your roots.

I feel like many of my old companions look at it like I must never have any free time, none to just let loose and have fun.
