Bryanna's D-PlanWhat's a D-Plan?
FallHanoverFavorite Class: History 9.01: The Americas From Invasion To Independence
With only 12 people, this course was the perfect seminar style course to introduce me to the history department at Dartmouth. We learned about pre-Columbus America up until the American Revolution, exploring a vast period of American history that is largely swept over in high school curriculums.
WinterHanoverFavorite Class: Writing 5: The Supreme Court
As someone who hopes to attend law school one day, this course was the perfect introduction to legal jargon, briefs, and the like. Professor Kalish helped me improve my writing my leaps and bounds as we explored judicial philosophies, current Supreme Court cases, and court history.
SpringSingaporeFavorite Class: English 34: Modern American Drama
Despite my inability to sing or act, I've always been a big fan of theatre. Quite frankly, this course is one of the reasons I applied to Dartmouth in the first place. We read plays written from the early 1900s up to Hamilton, engaging with each deeply through class discussions and essay writing.
SummerSingaporeFavorite Class: DPCS Internship
This summer I interned with a food bank in Philadelphia called Philabundance through the Dartmouth Partners in Community Service (DPCS) summer internship program. Each year, students apply to be matched as interns with non-profits in San Francisco, Philadelphia, or Boston. I completed the 10 week internship remotely from Asia, working a 9pm to 5am shift 5 days a week. It was an incredibly timely experience, as I worked primarily on Philabundance's COVID-19 relief efforts.
Rowing for Justice: A Team's Response to the Black Lives Matter Movement
In the aftermath of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery's tragic deaths, the Heavyweight, Lightweight, and Women's crews at Dartmouth decided that it was time to act.
