I am a Religion major and an Education minor who is interested in eventually working in the field of law. At Dartmouth, I am a sister of Alpha Phi, a current member of the varsity Track and Field team, and also played a year on the varsity Basketball team. When I'm on campus, my favourite things to do are get breakfast at Lou's and go to football games. When I'm not on campus, my favourite things to do are travel and visit my family and friends.
Our professor made the class! Professor Tine was so enthusiastic about the content and material in this course, that it made me excited to come to class and learn eachday
I spend my first year summer at home with my family and travelling to visit old friends, new friends from Dartmouth, and extended family members. I spent a lot of my summer down south in Florida and Georgia, escaping the Canadian cold.
Sophomore fall I was on campus taking classes and training for the upcoming Track and Field season. My favourite class was taught by 3 different professors from 3 different departments, looking at the Protestant Reformation from an art history angle, music angle, and of course religious perspective.
I spent sophomore winter on campus in Hanover taking four classes and competing in our indoor track and field season. The most interesting class that I took this term was an introduction architecture class where we actually got to build things in the wood shop!
This spring was a busy one for me in Hanover! I competed for our school's varsity track and field team and took three classes, two of which satisfied requirements for my major. My favourite class was "Jewish Views of Christianity", which was cross-listed in the Religion, History and Jewish Studies departments.
It's my sophomore summer! However, instead of taking classes, I'm on campus interning with the Alumni Relations office. Stay tuned to my blog posts for more updates.
While fall is my favourite time at Dartmouth, I decided to spend this term abroad studying at the University of Edinburgh's New College School of Divinity. I will be taking three classes and spending my extra time exploring Europe!
I am really curious to hear your thoughts on Windows vs Mac at Dartmouth and whether there are any issues with compatibility or just ubiquity of either system on campus. And of course, which you would recommend?
I used a Windows computer all throughout high school but switched to Mac when I started college. Many of my teammates recommended getting a Mac because most of the systems that Dartmouth uses are fit for Mac operating system. In general, I find the Mac system to be much easier to use, especially if you have an iPhone. I like to use my Mac to Facetime my family and friends at home and AirDrop is also really useful for group projects. I know Mac computers are a big investment, but mine was well worth it.
