Here on campus, most people know me as "Jul"! I am a Religion major who is interested in eventually working in the field of law. At Dartmouth, I am a sister of Alpha Phi, a current member of the varsity Track and Field team, and also played a year on the varsity Basketball team. When I'm on campus, my favourite things to do are get breakfast at Lou's and go to football games. When I'm not on campus, my favourite things to do are travel and visit my family and friends.
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.
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.
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 spring was a busy one for me in Hanover! I competed for our school's varsity track and field team and took three classes, two of which satisfied requirements for my major. My favourite class was "Jewish Views of Christianity", which was cross-listed in the Religion, History and Jewish Studies departments.
It's my sophomore summer! However, instead of taking classes, I'm on campus interning with the Alumni Relations office. Stay tuned to my blog posts for more updates.
While fall is my favourite time at Dartmouth, I decided to spend this term abroad studying at the University of Edinburgh's New College School of Divinity. I took three classes and spent my extra time exploring Europe!
This term I am back home in Hanover! I will be taking four classes and competing for the Dartmouth track and field team. I look forward to the beautiful Hanover winter scenery and spending some time skiing on the slopes.
Spring term means the start of outdoor track and field for my team and a number of fun outdoor activities! Follow along as I take three interdisciplinary classes and continue exploring the beautiful Upper Valley.
This summer I am stepping into my new role as a Senior Fellow here at the Admissions Office. Each day, I get to speak with prospective students and their families about Dartmouth College. Don't worry though, I'll still be blogging!
I can't believe that I am starting my senior year here at the College! The past three years have flown by, and I'm so excited for my last full year on campus. Fall is my favorite time of year - I'll spend this term taking three classes, training for track and field, and spending as much time outside as possible. From coding in the humanities to the religion of Ancient Egypt, I'm looking forward to sharing my academic and extracurricular adventures with you this term!
One thing that drew me to Dartmouth while I was getting recruiting and researching colleges, was the school's very interdisciplinary approach to different subjects. As a high school senior, I had very little idea about what I hoped to study during the next four years. Update: I still don't.
