FallHanover, NHFavorite Class: HIST 5.11: Gandhi, Twentieth Century India and the World
After seeing this class in the course catalogue, it surprisingly piqued my interest. I decided to take the course on a whim, and I don't regret it for a second. Between reading various historical accounts and conducting my very first true historical research paper, I learned more about Gandhi than I ever thought I would know in my lifetime. Furthermore, I gained valuable knowledge about India's struggle for independence and subsequent partitions that have allowed me to better understand the historical context behind current day issues in South Asia. From this course I've realized that I love history, and want to pursue the discipline as a double major.
WinterHanover, HNFavorite Class: COSC 1: Introduction to Programming and Computation
This class was AWESOME. I originally took the course as a prerequisite for another potential major. However, coming away from CS1, I now know that I want to continue further in the CS department! My professor was amazing and truly had a passion for teaching computer science and getting new students excited about the discipline. Besides having an infectious energy during class, she also made sure to make short assignments and labs fun and engaging. HIGHLY recommend. So much fun.
SpringHanover, NHFavorite Class: HIST 19: US Political History of the 20th Century
This term was by far my favorite so far at Dartmouth, especially by the time the snow melted and the sun came back out from wherever it was hiding. I absolutely loved this history class that I took because I felt that it helped me to better understand the way our country is today by studying our political past. I got to focus on a research topic of my own choosing, and I discovered a real love and affinity for research in the field of history.
I spent the summer at home, relaxing with my family and friends. When I wasn't at home in Houston, I was traveling with family, in particular my grandparents, who live in Florida and California.
FallHanover, NHFavorite Class: ENGL 64: Cultural Analytics
I'm finally back on campus! I can't wait to get back into the swing of things, and enjoy the beauty of Hanover autumns. i am very excited for my classes this term, particularly a coding class in the humanities, where I will get to apply my love for computation and programming to topics in the humanities!
WinterHanover, NHFavorite Class: ANTH 37 Legacies of Conquest: Latin America
This class, being in the Anthropology department, was certainly out of my comfort zone. With my history background, however, I found that I had a unique perspective to contribute to class conversations, due to the varied nature of the anthropological academic approach. We learned about the history of conquest in Latin America and how that shape conquest today. What is conquest? Does it still persist? Can it ever go away? Are we to always live in the legacy past?
SpringHanover, NHFavorite Class: COSC 52: Full-Stack Web Development
Spring 20S! Online classes… This class, CS52, got me through this term. With all the chaos and uncertainty surrounding everything going on, the projects for this class made me stay sane. Work for this class was fun and even stress relieving (weird, yes, I am aware). And the professor was absolutely incredible. I am super proud of all the projects I made, including most notably our app Tempo, an IOS app that makes custom workout playlists.
