No Summertime Sadness Here: A Reflection on My Sophomore Summer
As people are beginning to trade in their tank tops for sweaters and iced coffees for pumpkin-spiced lattes, I can't help but reminisce about my summer term at Dartmouth, commonly known as sophomore summer. This summer was particularly special to me because I hadn't been on campus in over a year due to the pandemic. Seeing all of my friends in-person and taking part in fun activities on campus was nothing short of surreal.
In one of the blog posts I made before the summer started, I had written down a bucket list of things I wanted to experience by the end of my sophomore summer. I can gladly say that I was able to accomplish all the items on my bucket list and some more! One of the highlights of my summer was joining Ujimelt, a summer dance group.
Another highlight of my summer was doing all the summery-activities that the Upper Valley has to offer. From hanging out by the Connecticut River to eating delicious ice cream at Ice Cream Fore-U and basking in the sun on the Green, my friends and I truly embraced the summer season.
Sophomore summer has been my favorite term at Dartmouth so far. It was amazing to be back on Dartmouth's beautiful campus and to be face-to-face with my friends again after such a long time. As I begin my fall term, I will hold dear in my heart all the wonderful memories I made this summer!
