To all of you wonderful prospies, parents, and plenty more, welcome! My name is Brian, I’m a STEM-studying outdoor enthusiast from a small town in CT who plans to double major in Engineering Physics and Economics. Outside of class, I'm a club hockey player, avid hiker, aspiring rock climber, and occasional voice in on-campus politics. I’m a strong advocate for cold and snowy weather, so if you ever need some convincing, don't be afraid to look my way!
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.
How many hours of sleep do Dartmouth students get on average?
I personally get 6-7, which is surprisingly probably more than I got in high school. Most of my friends probably get around 7-8 hours in per night on average. - Brian '21 // I'm the kind of person who can't function without at least 7 hours of sleep, so I typically get 7-8 hours of sleep most nights and roughly 6-7 during finals. I know my experience may be quite different from other Dartmouth students', but I've never had to pull an all-nighter for academic reasons. - Colleen '19 // 9 hours! - Julianna '20 // 12 hours on weekend, 5-6 hours if I go straight to bed after finishing my homework during the week, and 3-4 hours if I hang out with friends after homework or during midterms. - Autumn '21
