FallOn CampusFavorite Class: Chinese I
Introduction to the amazing language of Chinese, taken with Mao Lao Shi. Really got my mornings going! I think all Dartmouth students should make the most out of their language classes, as they offer unique cultural opportunities and stick with you for life. I'm grateful for all who shared that classroom with me, and I am very happy to realize how much I have progressed in a subject so new to me.
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: ASCL 07.02-01 - Asian Conflict and Cooperation
My writing seminar, themed on Asian Conflict and Cooperation. I got to discuss a topic beyond my comfort zone, and had a blast! My classmates were really giving their best, and professor Rezvani gave us an incredible learning experience and an organized debate environment. This class opened my horizons , and I am really happy I took it, having looked forward for each class! My writing style improved greatly due to this class, which makes it all the better!
SpringOn CampusFavorite Class: CS 1 - Intro to Computer Science
The class that first got me into CS, and eventually led to me choosing my major! I believe this class should be a requirement to graduate. Most students at Dartmouth take it already, and it figures. Great class, provides you tools you can use in whatever field you choose!
FallBeijing, ChinaFavorite Class: Chin 31 - Advanced Modern Chinese
I took three Chinese classes this term, so I chose the last one to show off. This was the term I had my LSA+ experience in China! Got to travel all over, and improved my Chinese a ton. I encourage every Dartmouth student to take a language, even if you start at intermediate level, so you can go on an LSA+ or FSP experience!
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: Rel 19.30 - Islam And Medicine
A blast of a class! Discussion, great readings and a lot of amazing topics to learn. Also, Professor Joe Vignone was a bright spot on my term. A perfectly quirky man, I loved being one of two people to laugh at his jokes and his novelty t-shirts. He is also superbly smart and got me interested on a class I thought I was just taking to fulfill a graduation requirement!
SpringOnline (On Campus)Favorite Class: CS 65 - Android Programming
Great Professor, great TAs, great class. I didn't think I'd like this class: it is infamous for being a lot of work. Don't get me wrong, it is, but it is work you do with a smile on your face. The teaching team is great, there is a lot of awesome material to cover and it's great to have some smartphone programming ability. Greatly recommend to CS majors!
FallOn Campus (Remote)Favorite Class: Cosc 65 - Human-Centered Interactions
Professor XD Yang is one of the faculty teaching this incredible course. Generally, CS classes focus on programming and Math; it was great to spend some time just designing, and thinking about the why, not the how. I recommend this class to all curious minds who are willing to come up with some creative ideas!
WinterOn Campus (Remote)Favorite Class: EARS 2: Evolution of Earth and Life
Full disclosure: I picked this course for the distributive requirement, SCI. And yet, I fell in love with it! Professor Osterberg gave us not only an incredible overview of the world we inhabit and of the life upon it, but also perspectives on the future of humanity.
SpringOff Campus (Remote)Favorite Class: EDUC 47: Social and Emotional Development
I will just go and say it: Professor Tine is my favorite. She is so nice, and has such a strong didactic structure, that I would trust her to teach me anything, and so should you if you ever come across one of her courses. I know a lot more about humanity, development, and even about myself now.
Dartmouth Grand Tour
With deadlines fast approaching, it's important to make the most of every moment.

An International's D-Plan
The D-Plan describes how you spend each term at Dartmouth: on, off, abroad... And it can be quite challenging, especially for international students. Luckily, I am here to explain it all just for you!
For summer interim, my mother brought my grandfather to finally see our lovely College and the Upper Valley. Let me tell you all about the awesome time we had!

Best Sunday Lunch
After coming to College, I realized how much these spaces are important, and how much we take them for granted during high school. To be able to go and socialize in a safe, low pressure environment is priceless!
What to Expect When You are Expecting (To Go Abroad!)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA I'M GOING ABROAD!! WHAT SHOULD I DO? WHAT SHOULD I RESEARCH! Do not worry! Dartmouth has an amazing pre-departure platform that will leave you as safe as can be!

After Dark Carnaval
There is Mardi Gras down south, Carnivals north into Canada, but here in Hanover the weekend before Lent doesn’t really have anything special most years. Most. This year, we held the party of a lifetime.
