Julianna's D-PlanWhat's a D-Plan?
FallOn CampusFavorite Class: HIST 003: Europe in Medieval and Early Modern Times
My favourite part about this class was the structure of it! Three times a week, we had a large class lecture. Then, our x-hour was used for a small group discussion with our professor.
I loved how interactive this class was. It was a lecture-based class, but we often had in-class building activities and one large project - building a cardboard chair!
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 each day
I spend my first-year summer at home with my family and traveling 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.
FallOn CampusFavorite Class: REL 60: Protestant Reformations.
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.
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: SART 65: Architecture 1
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!
SpringOn CampusFavorite Class: REL 32.06: Jewish Views of Christianity
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!
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: GEOG 54: Geovisualization
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.
SpringOn CampusFavorite Class: ENGL 55.12: Dartmouth Fictions
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!
FallOn CampusFavorite Class: REL 62: Religion, Politics and the Presidency
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!
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: WRIT 80: Independent Research
It's my last winter in Hanover and I can't believe it! I am taking three classes that are all related to my major, and competing in the indoor track and field season. This term I am most excited about my independent research where I am looking at religious sentiment in texts from the English Reformation. I'm hoping to spend some free days skiing and exploring this beautiful winter wonderland.
A Year in Review
Happy New Year! As we look back at 2017, it's incredible to think that I've spent the last 365 days as a Dartmouth student. A majority of that time was spent on campus in Hanover or with friends that I met at school. Here's a list of my favourite memories of 2017 - thanks to Dartmouth:
A snowstorm during spring term!
Finding new study spots!
Exploring New Hampshire!
Travelling with Dartmouth friends!
Hanging out on the Green!
Watching football games with friends!
Swimming in the River!
Starting a new sport!
Rushing a sorority!
Celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving at my home away from home!
