Reasons Dartmouth Feels Like Home
Starting college can be a scary event -- especially if you are moving away from home. Here's a list of some of the reasons why Dartmouth now feels like home to me.
- No. 1
My friends are so important to me! I have met the most incredible people since coming to Dartmouth and am so grateful to have created relationships that I know will last a lifetime. We have gone to football games at Fenway Park, concerts in New Hampshire, and explored the Upper Valley together.

My room is my little home away from home! I have my room decorated and organized to remind me of my room at home. I like to spend time doing my homework, hanging out with my friends and relaxing in my room.
- No. 3
There's nothing like a home-cooked meal and even though our dining halls have great food, I do miss eating dinners with my family. One of my favourite dinners to have at school is Collis. Their pasta bar reminds me of the dinners my family often makes at home.
- No. 4
I spend a significant amount of time each day with my teammates and my coaches. They support me on and off the field and they are always there to help me when I am feeling stresed.
- No. 5
Where I am from, there are lots of open green spaces. While Dartmouth is not located in a metropolitan area, the Green is one place that reminds me of the open spaces of home. Being able to spend time with my classmates and spend time outside getting fresh air is super important for positivie mental health.

I don' t have any sisters, and when I joined a sorority I gained about 150 sisters across all years at Dartmouth. Not only is Alpha Phi one of my many "homes" on campus, but being in a national sorority means I have a "home" on different campuses all over the country.
