FallOn CampusFavorite Class: GEOG 23- Political Geography
Analyze the relationship between power, knowledge, and space. Super cool fun class which introduced me to the Global South and writers from it. Highly recommend, Prof Kindervater is awesome!
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: ENGL 80- Writing and Reading Fiction
Imagine what Shonda Rhimes/any fiction writer does and that’s what I’m learning how to do. I write my own stories and develop them, bettering my descriptive and writing skills. For my final projects, I submitted two short stories which I crafted. At first, it was challenging because I had no idea what I would write about, but enjoyed the creative process.
Best Job: Food Taster
Ever wonder what Dartmouth students do on Saturday nights? Well, sometimes we get together and make "simple eats." Coming to college you might think that "going out" means partying, but there are so many other things to do.
Welcome Home '22s!
Congratulations '22s and Welcome Home.

If you asked me in high school if I would ever get into ceramics, I would tell you no. I wasn't good with my hands, which meant I was awful at building things. I had always thought ceramics looked cool, just not when I made something.
