Hi! I'm Emma and I'm a junior on the Dartmouth Triathlon Team. I love walks around Occom Pond in the fall, browsing books of poetry at the Dartmouth Bookstore, and drinking tea at Dirt Cowboy. Some of my favorite things are astrology, tattoos, vintage denim, and vegetarian food. I'm passionate about feminism and social justice, and I am part of several sexual violence prevention/response groups on campus. My favorite foods are Ramunto's pizza and Ben & Jerry's Half Baked ice cream.
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.
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.
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.
Drawing I is an opportunity for students without much experience in the visual arts to get
comfortable in the studio. It's time consuming, but a great creative outlet, and the results at the
end of the term are worth it.
As someone who won't receive financial aid but whose parents aren't eager to provide spending money, I'm wondering how students manage expenses for activities, day-to-day items, and outings. I'm also wondering if the College provides many free events?
In terms of off-campus activities, there are a lot of great things to do in nature around campus, like hiking, that cost nothing or next to nothing. Lots of restaurants in town are affordable if you’re looking to eat out; my favorite are the 99-cent slices after 9pm at Ramunto’s Brick and Brew. Pretty much any event the College puts on is free of charge for students, including sporting events like football games. Students get impressive rates for shows at the HOP that can be paid with your student card. Campus jobs are varied and abundant and can range from 2 hours a week to up to 20. I personally have worked three or four jobs per term in different departments, and it has all been very manageable. I hope this helps!
