Hi guys! The name's Tulio (yes, like the guy from Rio) Huggins, and I am a '23! I am from the beautiful state of Pennsylvania, where I have lived for the past couple of years. I am double majoring in History and English with a concentration in Creative Writing. In my free time, I love to hang out with friends at Christian Union, Apologia, and my fraternity; read; and take pictures! Feel free to ask any questions you might have. I hope that you all have a blessed day!
History & English with Concentration in Creative Writing
This history class is dedicated to investigating the history behind current events. In this term, we looked at the history behind immigration, Silicon Valley, and affirmative action. And in the final weeks of the term, we were able to choose what we wanted to learn about, and we chose to look at the history of impeachment. It is a very cool class with great class discussions. I would highly recommend!
COSC 1 is an intro to Computer Science course. I had never taken a CS course, so learning the new Python language was definitely tough! Even so, I learned so much about how to code, and the help provided by TAs and the professors is invaluable in this course!
This was the first class I ever took in the African and African American Studies and Religion Department. It opened my eyes to the various ways African Americans in the Jim Crow era survived when the world was stacked up against them. I would highly recommend!
It is a small college, and yet there are those who love it!
For those who are away/have been away from campus: what do you miss most about Hanover and Dartmouth?
In a famous Supreme Court case, Dartmouth College v. Woodward, Daniel Webster uttered the famous quote of Dartmouth: "It is a small college, and yet there are those who love it!"
During the six months I've been away from campus because of COVID, I really realized how much I missed campus. In my first year at Dartmouth, I was still getting adjusted to the hecticness of college life. The increase of homework, the classes, the homesickness, all hit me hard and made me want at times to be back home. However, the past year changed that--I realized what made Dartmouth what it was to me.
The first thing I missed was the campus itself. Dartmouth has such a beautiful campus, with so many trees and endless areas to just sit and rest for a little bit. Every season has its perks, whether it is the sunny days on the Green, or the silent winter nights when the snow is falling gently on Webster Avenue.
The second thing I missed where the intellectually stimulating conversations I had with people. During my sophomore fall term, I had endless conversations that often went late into the night that went from politics, religion, psychology, and more. I got to learn more about my fellow classmates--about their lives, their passions, their goals, and their fears. It gave me a way to grow closer to those around me, and the conversations that I had I will never forget.
This pandemic has taught me a lot of things. And one of the lessons has been to cherish the college I attend. So whenever I leave to go home for break, I now remember to be thankful for the time I get to spend at Dartmouth.
Introducing myself has started to feel almost like a scripted line I repeat every now and then when I bump into an unknown face. It's like a cake recipe. For my blog, however, I wanted to be sure it feels genuine. So here it goes!
I'm Luke, an international member of the class of '25. In this blog, I introduce myself as a brand new member of the People Places Pines blogging team and talk about my first few weeks since hitting campus!
Hi! Welcome to my world. My name is Caroline, and I was born and raised in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia. I've been at Dartmouth for over two weeks now, and I'm already in love with the school and its surroundings.
