Hey all! So excited to see you here. My name is Sydney and I'm a '24 majoring in Economics and Environmental Studies and minoring in Public Policy from Southern California. I've also lived abroad in Spain, Gibraltar, and the Philippines, so Hanover and the East Coast are a whole new world to me! I love to scuba dive, bike, travel, and write. Besides blogging, I am involved in Women in Business, Women's Water Polo, Greek Life, and the Energy Justice Clinic.
Majors in Economics and Environmental Studies, Minor in Public Policy
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!
As someone interested in international studies, this 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.
Searching for Justice is 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!
I am an aquaphile, a lover of all things related to the water. This environmental studies course on Marine Policy is perfect for me because it dives into how humans have impacted the oceans. From coastal development to deep sea mining, we’ve explored how to think like a policymaker and consider the many different stakeholders involved in global marine issues.
For those of us who come from homes with warm weather, winter in New Hampshire can be a shock. Three years into my Dartmouth career, I've figured out some ways to make the best of winter term—take a look!
This past weekend, I decided to go with some friends to the Dartmouth Skiway. I had already gone earlier this term and was amazed at how convenient and affordable the whole experience was. Therefore, I decided I had to go back again!
