Grandeur Atop Gile: Viewing Peak Fall Foliage in the Upper Valley
A novelty of east coast autumns that I have discovered since becoming a New Hampshirite has been the expansive outburst of colors on its trees. By hiking Gile Mountain, you can revel in the grandeur of the northeast's fall foliage too!

Seeing My Friends Again
After eight months away from campus, I realized how true and deep the connections I had made with my friends last fall were, even after having spent such a short amount of time with them.

Oh, Starbucks, a friend to aid my coffee addiction and a foe for the same reason. Coming from a small, rural town in Nebraska, the nearest Starbucks to me was in the next city over, but I am now blessed to have one a few blocks away in downtown Hanover. My REAL downfall begins as soon as I remember Hanover Scoops, the ice cream shop, is just across the street.

This year I was lucky enough to be placed in a single dorm (which I am in LOVE with)! After a long day of classes, it is such a refreshing feeling knowing that I can come home to a space that I feel comfortable in. I’ve taken the initiative to decorate my dorm as cozy as possible (a piece of advice for every prospective student), covering each and every square inch of my wall in movie posters and Polaroids. I am ecstatic to call North Massachusetts 211 home for this year.
