A Monday in the Life
A perfect Monday at Dartmouth! Spring edition!!
- No. 1
Breakfast and Office Hours 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.
I love getting an early start to the day, especially in the spring as I can enjoy the beautiful morning glow that has overtaken all of Hanover. Today, I was at FoCo (Dartmouth speak for Food Court) by 8:00 a.m. to grab a meal with a friend. At 8:45 we were done and I headed over to the Steel building to have office hours with my professor. Given the beautiful spring day, the office hours were outside! During this time, we spoke about an upcoming class project and overarching goals and expectations for the class.

After my office hours, I headed out to my 10:10 class, Introduction to International Development. During class we discussed the pros and cons of microcredit directed towards women as a development initiative.

Still North 11:20 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
After class I went to Still North, which is a bookstore in Hanover started by a Dartmouth alum from the Class of 2011. I bought a book my friend recommended to me and read it for a little while at the store before my lunch plans.

Lunch on the Green 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
For lunch we had some Collis stir fry (unfortunately not pictured) which was absolutely delicious! We decided to enjoy the day and sit on the Green. By now it was incredibly hot so we sat in the shade and I reveled in amazing conversation and weather that reminded me of back home.

Studying 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
After lunch, I went over to the new Arthur L. Irving Institute to study with some friends. This is a brand new building devoted to the study of Energy and Society and is a gorgeous place to study. It also has a wonderful café with pretty tasty options.

Swimming at the River! 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
After studying for a little while and working on my economics problem set, we grabbed our stuff and headed out to the river for a swim! The water was still very cold but it was so thrilling to jump in!

Dinner on the Green 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
After jumping into the river, I went back to my dorm to shower and change. Nothing better to conclude this perfect day with some more food from Collis where I got sushi. As always, Collis Sushi is really good! My friends got pasta and we all enjoyed the end of the day as we sat in the center of campus.
