A Day In My Life as a '24
Hi everyone! I had a super active Sunday and decided to document everything. Keep reading to hear about a typical weekend before a freshman's first midterm week!
I woke up super late after a night of watching Euphoria and Harry Potter with my roommate Ari and decided to head to the '53 Commons dining hall—affectionately dubbed "Foco"—to grab breakfast. We just got access to the dining hall after quarantining through the first two weeks and it's safe to say that I'm already obsessed. There are so many options for every meal that it literally takes me about 10 minutes of walking around and reading all the menus to decide what I want to eat. This morning I went with the classic (oatmeal with raisins) and grabbed a banana and coffee before heading back to my room to study before the upcoming midterm week.
I left the library a little early for a club meeting and went directly back to my room and jumped on Zoom. I'm involved in a club called the Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science, and I'm working on writing a joint print article (like a group project) about cancer and its treatments from a couple different perspectives, likely biological, clinical, and economic. The Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science is super cool because it brings together a bunch of students from different STEM backgrounds and allows them to be published in an academic journal as an undergrad.

After my picnic, I went back to my room and joined a review session with the Teaching Science Fellow for my biology class. She went over a problem set she released for us to practice on earlier and answered a bunch of questions. After that, I just studied a little bit more for my biology exam then watched some more Euphoria with my roommate. All in all, a pretty packed day full of studying and enjoying the Hanover outdoors. Goodnight!

While the student body at the College may be relatively small, students here recognize that their vote can hold a lot of weight in New Hampshire, a classic swing state.
Right now, I'm taking a Writing 5 class called Food for Thought, focusing on environmental, agricultural, culinary, and nutritional aspects of the food we choose to eat.
Over the past year, I've talked a lot with prospective students. Picking college is a big deal, but if I knew what I do now, I'd still pick Dartmouth a dozen times over.
