Julianna's D-PlanWhat's a D-Plan?
FallOn CampusFavorite Class: HIST 003: Europe in Medieval and Early Modern Times
My favourite part about this class was the structure of it! Three times a week, we had a large class lecture. Then, our x-hour was used for a small group discussion with our professor.
I loved how interactive this class was. Tt was a lecture based class, but we often had in-class building activities and one large project - building a cardboard chair!
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.
FallOn CampusFavorite Class: REL 60: Protestant Reformations.
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.
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: SART 65: Architecture 1
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!
SpringOn CampusFavorite Class: REL 32.06: Jewish Views of Christianity
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 took three classes and spent my extra time exploring Europe!
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: GEOG 54: Geovisualization
This term I am back home in Hanover! I will be taking four classes and competing for the Dartmouth track and field team. I look forward to the beautiful Hanover winter scenery and spending some time skiing on the slopes.
SpringOn CampusFavorite Class: ENGL 55.12: Dartmouth Fictions
Spring term means the start of outdoor track and field for my team and a number of fun outdoor activities! Follow along as I take three interdisciplinary classes and continue exploring the beautiful Upper Valley.
This summer I am stepping into my new role as a Senior Fellow here at the Admissions Office. Each day, I get to speak with prospective students and their families about Dartmouth College. Don't worry though, I'll still be blogging!
6 Favourite Sports Games I Went to This Fall
With so many of the Big Green athletic teams competing this term, it's hard to decide which games and matches to attend each weekend.
- No. 1
Football vs. Holy Cross
An incredible overtime win in football’s home-opener, the Big Green took down Holy Cross 27-26. “It was a great game because we never gave up and we never stopped believing we could win,” said offensive lineman, Phil Berton ’19. His teammate, Gage Guerra, added that “the win against Holy Cross felt so great because we battled through adversity against a high quality team. It was awesome to win in front of the fans in our home opener.” This was a fun game to be at because of the atmosphere of the student section!
- No. 2
Women’s Volleyball vs. Columbia
The volleyball team’s Ivy League home-opener resulted in a 3-0 win over Columbia. The Big Green played incredible defence in front of a supportive crowd at Leede Arena. Carly Tower ’20 said that “it was a great game because we really played together as a team and came out strong. The fan support was incredible and the atmosphere in Leede Arena was eletric."
- No. 3
Men’s Hockey vs. Windsor
The men’s hockey team played an exhibition game against the University of Windsor from Canada. They came away with a 2-1 win. Clay Han ’20, who plays defence, was excited about the game. He commented that, “For our first game against another team, I thought we were able to make a lot of good plays both offensively and defensively. I believe that from our goalies, to our defence, and all the way up to our forwards, we were able to play a solid 60 minutes of hockey.”
