My Freshman Winter Classes: Latin, Writing, and GeneticsAfter reflecting on my first term at Dartmouth, I decided to continue on the pre-med track and to begin taking some required classes during my second term.
Neon Horse Print Leggings and my Experience with "Flair" at DartmouthIn my experience, I've found that flair helps level the playing field because when everyone looks weird, there's fewer reasons to feel out of place.
How I Spend Saturday Nights as a FreshmanI've found there are a ton of ways to have fun here, even outside of Dartmouth's well-known Greek system. Here are some of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday!
- No. 1
One of the things I’ve been the most surprised by is the amount of live music at Dartmouth. I’m not a music fanatic, but it is fun to attend concerts with friends on Friday and Saturday nights. Since our campus is not in a city, all of the shows are intimate, and you can get much closer to the artists than you would at a bigger concert. My favorite event so far has been a COIN concert that took place on the green and was free for all students!

Arts and Crafts!
Recently, I have been going to a ton of art events on campus. The Hood Museum and Hopkins Center for the Arts (or the HOP as we call it) both offer lots of free, open to campus creative events. It can be hard to find time for creativity during the school week, so I really appreciate the opportunity to paint and collage with my friends. So far, I’ve made pins, collages, book art, and sticker poems – my next goal is to attend an earring making workshop!

Whether it’s sports teams, acapella groups, or debate teams, most student organizations have socials throughout each term. One of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday night is with the club water polo team. I didn’t play water polo before Dartmouth, but all of the upperclassmen have been super welcoming both in and out of the pool.
