Finding my "fit" at Dartmouth!
Welcome to Dartmouth, '24s! Despite these trying times, we are all super excited to welcome you all to the Big Green. The next four years of your life are going to be among your very best, I have no doubt about it.
During that time, I didn't really understand what "fit" meant. I mean, with home being thousands of miles away from Hanover, where do I even begin? And, to tell you the truth, you can never completely tell if you made the 'right' decision until you've spent some time and actually settle in at college. Sometimes there's not even a 'right' or 'wrong' choice. Some people may take longer than others to find their home or some people may end up ultimately deciding it's not it for them. Wherever you end up choosing for whatever the reason, there are always going to be side stories that weigh in and affect your experience as you go through it.
