FallOn CampusFavorite Class: Biology 11.07
BIOL 11.07 (Major Events in the History of Life and the Human Genome) is a very unique class. We learn topics such as oxidative phosphorylation in conjunction with evolution and paleontology. In other words, where and when did ETC come from, and how can we support our hypothesis? Though not an easy class by far, every day the material I learn amazes me with the wonder of life, which is how biology should be!
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: MES 7.03
MES 7.03 (Jerusalem: Vision and Reality) was my First-Year Seminar and such an interesting class to take! We explored Jerusalem through three main viewpoints (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). The class had a bit of religion, literature, anthropology, sociology, and even geography—all things I love to study but don't necessarily have the space for with our three-class quarters. I often found myself going to office hours just to talk with my professor about questions I had outside of the reading!
A Week of Dinners at DartmouthWhat does a freshman student eat for dinner every day of the week at Dartmouth?
- No. 1
For Monday's dinner, I went to FoCo! FoCo stands for Class of 1953 Commons and is the center of all-you-can-eat food. Freshmen are automatically put on the most generous meal plan for their first quarter, which includes 4 meal swipes per day, so you will frequently find fellow friends eating at FoCo. On this particular day, I had some cornbread, a variety of salads from the salad bar, some chili, and for dessert, some yogurt with Butterfingers on top!
- No. 2
On Tuesday, I had catered food from a Thai restaurant in town called Tuk Tuk! The dinner was hosted by the Tucker Center and was an annual event that brings together a panel of students from various faith backgrounds to speak about their experiences and provide a platform for discussion amongst the greater Dartmouth population. We also had gelato from Morano Gelato afterwards, which was a real treat!
- No. 3
Pizza galore! A lot of student clubs or lectures have food during their meetings. On this particular day, we had glorious pizza from Domino's (one of the only franchise stores in the area, one of the others being CVS). Food is definitely a great motivator to get students to go to meetings, and is a fun perk in addition to going and hearing amazing lectures from Dartmouth faculty.
