FallOn CampusFavorite Class: WRIT 5 - Food For Thought
This class looked at food from every possible angle: agriculture, regulation/policy, marketing, nutrition, animal rights, and much more. This class drastically changed the way I think about food and where it comes from.
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: WGSS - Gender in Islam
Professor Ayubi is one of the best professors in the WGST department and led an incredible class on themes of gender/sexuality in Islam. Even those not interested in religion as a major couldn't help but be fascinated in this class.
SpringOn CampusFavorite Class: WGST 16 - Contemporary Issues in Feminism
This class was intense in that it revealed systems of oppression and violence that exist all around us. The objective of the nal project was to make a difference in public awareness of those systems.
For most of the summer I worked at a day camp, but the most important part of my summer was the weeks I spent in Haiti, visiting the little boy I hope to adopt at the orphanage where he lives. It is and has been the highlight of my last 4 summers.

SpringOn CampusFavorite Class: WGSS - Gender and the Global War on Terror
This class takes a closer look at militarization and it's effects on gendered violence around the world in the context of the American attempt to declare a "War on Terror."

Welcome To The Woods!
If you're reading this, you are likely either a brand new incoming Dartmouth student or a parent of said student. If you're an incoming freshman, we (me, the bloggers, everyone else on campus) are so pumped to meet you!
So you think you can SART?
It's really too bad that the Studio Art (SART) department at Dartmouth has a reputation for being time-consuming and "too much work." Many students only find themselves in the Black Family Visual Arts Center (BVAC) once during their four years of
Trips: the good, the bad, and the ugly
When I first heard about the tradition of First Year Trips - where Dartmouth sends a bunch of freshmen out into the woods to do a variety of outdoor activities together before anyone has even met before - I was very intimidated.

Finals approach. Stress is in the air. Good spots in the library are becoming more and more difficult to come by, and KAF lines seem to stretch for miles.
How To: Vegetarian at Dartmouth
I speak from experience when I say being a vegetarian/vegan (aka veganitarian) is not easy, especially when you make the move from home to college.
Winter Carnival ideas for people who don't like winter
Unpopular Dartmouth opinion: I am not a huge fan of the cold. I don't know how to ski or snowboard, and I think it's absolutely frigid when the temps drop below 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
