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.
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.
FallOn CampusFavorite Class: SART - Drawing 1
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.
The focus on both global current events and Dartmouth-specific feminist issues covered in this class made for an engaging curriculum for both newcomers and veterans to the WGSS department.
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."
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.
