Being back @ Dartmouth!
Fall term back in Hanover!

The bustle of activity!
During summer I counted down the days until I could be back on campus and see all of my friends! While being homesick is definitely a natural part of going away to college, I did not expect to be homesick for Dartmouth. Thankfully from the very moment I stepped out of the Dartmouth Coach I was greeted by a bunch of my friends and warm hugs! A week into the term and I have yet to stop encountering friendly faces! Dartmouth is such a small campus so bumping into people you know is an inescapably lovely circumstance.

The seasons! Cold weather convert?!
Even coming from Nicaragua and having enjoyed the tropical heat and sunshine for the entire summer, I have come to love the seasonal changes. I now love the way in which summer ebbs into fall, becomes winter, and then spring and rolls back into summer. As we move into September, that can only mean that fall is coming soon, and I couldn’t be more excited! I am already waking up to crisp cool mornings and I couldn’t be happier. Given enough layers, I now love the energizing chill.

I am so excited to finally be concentrating on classes surrounding my intended major in Economics and Geography. Fun fact –Dartmouth has the only Geography department in the entire Ivy League! This term I am taking Development Economics (ECON 24), Human Geography (GEOG 2.01), and a Public Speaking (SPEE 20) class. I am in love with these classes as they are all really different from one another and make an amazing balance. I am always amazed by the liberal arts curriculum at Dartmouth and how I am able to take classes in a wide range of disciplines and still find connections between them. My Geography class is also taught by one of my favorite professors here, Coleen Fox, who studies political and environmental geography and often focuses on the impacts of dams. I love being in her class and learning more about humans and how we interact and are impacted by the natural environment. Overall, I am so excited to see what new academic interests this term sparks!

Meeting the ‘26s :)
New year, new incoming class! Meeting the ‘26s has been so fun! Grabbing meals with new students has been wonderful as I can feel their contagious excitement for Dartmouth. While I loved being a freshman and having everything feel so new, being an upperclassman who can impart advice also has its perks.
