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!
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.
The premise of ENGS 21 is to jump right into the field of engineering by designing a product meant to improve quality of life for a target population. 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.
After a spectacular (and sweaty) week in the woods, I finally stepped off of the bus and back onto Robo Lawn. Trips were actually over. I had been having the time of my life but it went by so fast, and I already knew that it'd be an experience I'd never forget. A225 Hike and Climb. That was the first time that I'd ever been rock climbing and I already loved it, and surprisingly, it wasn't even my first choice trip. It was then that I decided, in that disheveled state on Robo Lawn, that trips wouldn't be the last time I scaled rock faces, tied knots, and squeezed my feet into tight shoes. I wouldn't let my climbing adventure stop there.
