FallOn CampusFavorite Class: JAPN 1 - First Year Japanese
I just love my professor and my classmates! (I had to wake up at 7:15 everyday to go to drill, but it was totally worth it) We were so close that we had breakfast together every morning, and called ourselves the Brekky Club!
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: FILM 33 - Screenwriting 1
I've always loved writing scripts and seeing my writing being materialized into several scenes, so I thought this class would be perfect. Also, I'd love to take up some challenges in my second term at Dartmouth!

DartMUN - Reliving my favorite high school memory
I used to attend a lot of Model UN conferences in high school. I was in love with the intense debates. I was thrilled at the new knowledge I was able to learn. And above all, I felt grateful for the friendships I made during each conference.
How to make friends with local students during the LSA
Dorsey sensei (our very cool faculty director of the LSA) also spent a lot of work to make sure that we have a chance to connect to Japanese students at Kanda.
