FallHanoverFavorite Class: WRIT 005: Inclusion, Diversity, and Higher Education
I actually wasn't planning on taking this class but it eventually became my favorite class. The professor was very funny and created a relaxed classroom environment where I enjoyed looking at diversity in different contexts, such as college admissions and group dynamics.
WinterHanoverFavorite Class: CLST 07.06: Pessimism and Happiness
This class was a perfect mix of philosophy, classical studies, and writing. We were able to reflect on societal views, our own ideas of optimism and pessimism, and how we can lead more fulfilling and compassionate lives.
SpringMontrealFavorite Class: COSC 10: Problem Solving via Object Oriented Programming
My first experience with computer science was my Freshman winter, and I quickly became interested in the subject. I followed up CS1 with CS10 in the Spring, which I found just as cool. I love how you can solve problems by applying logic and math with computer science, and I look forward to diving deeper into the major!
FallShanghaiFavorite Class: ECON 21: Microeconomics
Econ 21 is required for all Econ majors, and I loved my experience with Professor Gustman. He made the material super easy to digest and allowed me to take exams in my timezone, which I thought was really nice.
Learning about happiness in my First-Year Seminar!
My experience with my First-Year Seminar is just one example of how Dartmouth's liberal arts curriculum guides students to explore other fields and find interests that they might never have expected.
Navigating Being an International Student at Dartmouth
This wouldn't be possible without the amazingly helpful resources that Dartmouth offers international students, whether that's OVIS, my international student mentor, or the various other offices and students who are always there to support me.
