FallOn CampusFavorite Class: Introduction to Education: Learning, Development, and Teaching
Taught by Professor Tine, this class focused on many interdisciplinary topics within the field of education. I loved learning about the significance of early pre-K interventions on long-term behaviors, the layered complexities of the American public school system, the neuroscience behind how the brain processes new information, and much more!
WinterOn CampusFavorite Class: Global Health & Society
As someone interested in Dartmouth's International Studies minor, this core course opened my eyes to the complex world of global health – both the biological and social sides of achieving equity. I found this class especially applicable given the COVID-19 pandemic and often transfer knowledge from Global Health & Society into my everyday life.
SpringOn CampusFavorite Class: Searching for Justice
Searching for Justice was a perfect blend of studying literature and law. Highlights from this course include an op-ed I produced on anti-Asian hate crimes and a fictional short story adaptation based on Japanese internment camps from Korematsu v. United States. This first year seminar exposed me to many different court cases, and I’m now strongly considering a future career in law!
The Dartmouth: What it's Like to Work for America's Oldest College Newspaper
When I entered college, I was super excited to join The Dartmouth news staff, which is, fun fact, America's oldest college newspaper. Journalism is an awesome way to grow as a writer, hear stories, work on a passionate team, and report the truth!

What I Love About Dartmouth
In no particular order, here are a few places and ways I love to spend my free time as a student at Dartmouth. I hope this post can give you a glimpse into how wonderful campus life can be!
- No. 1
Rollerblading is one of the most popular spring pastimes here at Dartmouth. On nice days, expect to see groups of friends zooming around campus, from Occom Pond all the way to the Green. I’m just a beginner, but I’m improving with every practice session.
- No. 2
Five friends and I reserved a Zipcar (a car-sharing company) to hike to the top of Gile Mountain, a 20-minute drive from campus. When I came here in the fall, the view was a sea of red, orange, and yellow, so it was amazing to see the contrast from October to April.

Spring Days Outside
This photo was taken at the side of Baker-Berry Library. I appreciate how there are so many spots around campus for students to do work outside and enjoy some vitamin D!
Exploring Dartmouth and the Connecticut River
Here is a glimpse into the gorgeous outdoors that sits on and hugs Dartmouth's campus. On this fine May afternoon, my friends and I paddled down the Connecticut River for the first time now that the Ledyard Canoe Club opened services. We had a blast!
