FallHanover, NHFavorite Class: Marine Policy
As someone who did not know the ins and outs of marine policy, I loved learning about aspects of the blue economy. This class encourages us to be aware of the human aspect of marine problems regarding coastal erosion, pollution, and climate change. Professor Webster is the coolest!
WinterHanover, NHFavorite Class: From Beethoven to Now (Modern Classical Music)
I could not recommend this class enough to anyone who goes to this school! Professor Beaudoin has truly influenced me as both a musician and a student. We learn the music from the 1800's to present day including famous composers like Tchaikovsky, but also music by Beyonce and even the music of Dartmouth's professors. This is much more than a music history class. It is a class about music, our lives, and exploring the concept of sonder through musical lens.
Five Favorites of 22W
I had a wild term filled with many adventures. I took some time to reflect on my term and celebrate the chaos! Below are my five favorites of the winter term!
- No. 1
Your first winter term at Dartmouth can definitely be an adventure (especially when you don’t come from a snowy place). From my first time ice skating to my first time skiing, this term has revolved around the icy terrain. If the snow looks threatening, trust me that you get used to it. Wearing several layers is your best friend during the winter term! Plus, it always is fun to go sledding.
- No. 2
I took a sculpture class this term to see how I liked the studio art department! I made several big projects and spent dozens of hours in the studio this term. Although studio art classes are very fulfilling, I recommend only taking one when you know you will have time to be in the studio. I definitely will be sad when I don’t go to the studio almost every day next term, but maybe I will take more studio art classes soon.
- No. 3
It would be a gigantic understatement if I said no one had a birthday this term. Almost all of my friends had their birthday this term so there was a lot of celebration for our lives in general. From dances in the common rooms of our dorm buildings to going out to have cute dinners, there were constant celebrations.
