A Wintry Welcome
Happy New Year and welcome to winter term at Dartmouth! I've been looking forward to finally experiencing winter at Dartmouth since I applied here and it's already so much better than I ever imagined. I had such a fun winter break and was able to spend quality time with my friends and family, but I still missed Dartmouth so much and I'm more than happy to be back. I'm so excited to explore all the fun academic and extracurricular opportunities this term has in store. With that in mind, I'd love to share the things I'm looking forward to the most about winter term.

I always say that the best thing about Dartmouth is the people. Dartmouth’s campus community is made up of so many kind, supportive and fun students, faculty and staff. A new term brings new opportunities to make new friends in my residential community, classes and clubs. Being together in the woods during the cold winter also makes me so much more appreciative of being able to spend time with other people.

Although classes at Dartmouth can be challenging, learning new things is always fun! This term, I’m taking a writing class, a mathematical economics class and a public policy class, each one more exciting than the next. All my classes this term are related to my intended major, economic policy, so I’m always looking forward to my classes. I’m especially excited about my writing class, where our goal for the term is to write a research paper on any topic of our choice, which is something I’ve never done before!

Before coming to Dartmouth, I had never seen snow before, so seeing the campus complete surrounded in a gorgeous blanket of snow has been a sharp but beautiful change. I will be honest with you, it is very cold, but the new season brings new and fun activities. From sledding on the golf course to hitting the slopes at the Dartmouth Skiway, there are so many ways to have fun outside. This past weekend, I experienced my first campus wide snowball fight, one of Dartmouth’s unique traditions, where Dr Seuss sends out an email inviting Dartmouth students to a snowball fight on the green!

Over the weekend, my friends and I decided to walk to Occom Pond for some ice skating.
As someone who never snowboarded before, I signed up for a class through The Dartmouth PE department, and it's been a blast!
