Ahh, and of course, October also means that midterms are upon us. Dartmouth runs on the quarter system, so the terms are very fast-paced. Each term is 10 weeks and we take three courses each term, although there are limited options to take two or four courses.
Sometimes, it feels like there's so much going on yet so little time. Maybe you'll miss an occasional Saturday Bachata lesson — an awesomely fun Latin dance! But, silver lining, you have a lot of freedom in picking your classes 4 times a year. Plus, you never really get that end of the term slump that comes with the semester system.
With so many study places on campus, try to find what works best for you. A quiet spot with a beautiful view of the Green on a snowy evening? The Tower Room. A study room with a coffee place nearby? Try the Kresge Library or the Jones Media Center. Looking for someplace more isolated and creative? There's always the Dr. Seuss Room with its whimsical artwork.
Also, don't forget to use your late night meal swipe (part of your meal plan) at the Collis Café! From sushi, mozzarella sticks, and pork dumplings to customized smoothies, taco bowls, and fresh fruit, take a short break to get yourself going again.
That's all for this week. Here's a wintry wish that you all are powering through October!

My name is Michael Harrison '24 and I'm from Long Island, NY. Although my first official week as a Dartmouth student has just come to a close, it feels like I've been a part of the Dartmouth 'ecosystem' for a while now!
Although it will surely be different from previous terms, I'm looking forward to being back on-campus. I miss the sunsets as I walk from the library to FoCo, asking my friends to study on the Green with me, and so much more about being at Dartmouth.
