Seven Pictures are Worth 7,000 Words
A single picture is worth one thousand words, so seven pictures must be worth 7,000! For many of you high school seniors, COVID-19 has made it extremely difficult to travel long distances to tour colleges. My personal visit to Dartmouth was a huge factor in my decision to apply, so in honor of Week 7, I hope this blog post can virtually illustrate some of what Dartmouth has to offer in seven images – worth 7,000 words!
- No. 1
We start off with my dorm; Russell Sage is my home for 20F. Its rustic charm, centralized location, and tight-knit West House community are what make it so special!
- No. 2
In mid-September, I venture on a post-quarantine socially-distanced walk with a friend. Occom Pond is a gorgeous destination for immersing yourself in Hanover’s nature.
- No. 3
Breakfasts at Collis
As my Snapchat caption suggests, a Collis omelet with a side of potatoes quickly becomes my morning go-to meal, especially coupled with a fresh smoothie!
- No. 4
I cherish long hikes at Pine Park – everything from the fresh autumn breeze to stunning views of the Connecticut River to the abundance of tall trees.
- No. 5
It’s October now! After I grab coffee with my friend Rachel at Dirt Cowboy’s, a blanket of yellow leaves coats the ground. Tuck Drive is where my dorm Russell Sage is located.
- No. 6
Collis Cafe is one of my favorite study spots on campus. As I study outside of it, I notice a distinctly orange outlier amongst a row of green trees.
- No. 7
Walks with Friends
Two of my friends, Liz and Emily, take a walk with me from CVS to the Co-op Food Store for some post-brunch Saturday shopping. Green has just melted into orange, and it’s crazy to think that winter is already nearing the horizon.
