Amy Guan's D-PlanWhat's a D-Plan?
I met some of my best friends in this class and was first introduced to what is now my minor! Professor Farid simplified difficult concepts and made lectures fun to attend.
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: WRIT 7: Science and Society with Professor Frederick Kull
It was really interesting because everyone got to make a presentation about anything in the world they were interested in related to science, from the science of pop music to water.
Although I've never spoken a word of Japanese, it was so cool to be able to study the development of Asian languages, connecting them to societal implications today.
SummerHome in Princeton, NJ
I interned at Byrne Asset Management, a firm in Princeton, NJ. It was really cool to be able to gain insights into an industry I was previously not very familiar with and make contributions at an actual firm.
FallOn CampusFavorite Class: MUS051: Oral Tradition Musicianship with Professor Shabazz
We learned to play African drums and listened to Latin and West African music for class—what's there not to like? Exploring non-Western music was eye-opening and incredibly fun!
Hacking in the woods
I didn't expect much the first time I touched anything related to computer science — despite my dad being involved in the tech world, I had more or less avoided it until enrolling in COSC001 my freshman fall.
Eating our way across Hanover: Brunch Edition
Nobody does a lazy Sunday morning better than Hanover, NH—one of my favorite parts of the week is waking up late on Sunday and gathering with my friends for everyone's favorite meal: brunch. Here are just some of my Hanover brunch must-haves!
- No. 1
Located next to the back of the Hopkins Center, Market Table is a cute, chic restaurant with excellent fresh-baked goods as well as healthy options. Market Table offers fresh and locally-sourced foods, and always provides a nice, relaxing atmosphere for their Saturday and Sunday brunches.
- No. 2
Jewel of India
$11 Indian brunch buffet? Sign me up! This is a favorite among my group of friends, and we always make sure to make time for Jewel brunch a few times a term. Make sure you're extra hungry before you go to Jewel brunch — unlimited naan and tight pants make for a dangerous combination.
- No. 3
If you're feeling a little fancy, Pine's always a go-to option. Located in the Hanover Inn (right next to the Hopkins Center), Pine is Hanover's upscale American restaurant. Don't miss out on the famous Pine Burger, and their brunch eggs and toasts are always popular options.
Navigating the woods: what's there to do at Dartmouth?
Coming to Dartmouth from a relatively lively and central town in New Jersey, I remember being terrified that I'd feel closed off or isolated at a school that prides itself in sayings like "Welcome to the Woods!" and the accessibility of the natura
Life in a Living Learning Community
As someone who's always loved arts and literature, I never really thought about what role they'd play in my college life as an Economics and Computer Science major.
Roaming around the girdled earth
One of the things that stands out most clearly about Dartmouth is how pretty it is—the first time I drove up with my parents, I noted how the sky seemed to be bluer than it was back in New Jersey, and how the air seemed crisper and more f
