Hi guys! The name's Tulio (yes, like the guy from Rio) Huggins, and I am navigating my first year at Dartmouth! I am from the beautiful state of Pennsylvania, where I have lived for the past couple of years. I hope to study either Government or History, but I'm open to other majors as well. In my free time, I love to hang out with friends at Christian Union, paint, and take pictures! Feel free to ask any questions you might have about Dartmouth. I hope that you all have a blessed day!
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!
Which religious services are offered at Dartmouth? Is there a church or chapel or any other social group to feel connected to your faith?
There are various services available at Dartmouth! One of my favorite places on campus is Rollins Chapel, which is located in the northeastern corner of the Green. Managed by the Tucker Center (the college's center for religious/spiritual life on campus), Rollins holds various religious services for Christian, Jewish, and Hindi students and residents of the Upper Valley. Not only that, but student groups are able to reserve the chapel for their religious events. For example, one of the organizations I am a part of, Christan Union, reserves the space on Thursday nights for worship sessions. It's a nice time for contemplative worship and prayer, and the aged building provides a sort of comfort.
Outside of Dartmouth, there are various places of worship in the Upper Valley. I go to a church that's only a couple minutes walk from the College, and for those that are farther away, there are definitely carpool options!
All in all, there are a bunch of different options to have your religious needs fulfilled. For me, I found a strong community of not only student believers but also of believers in the greater Upper Valley area. It has definitely helped enrich my time at college!

Dartmouth offers a variety of opportunities for dance on campus! In the arts departments, mainly theater, we can take classes in dance and movement, ranging from fundamental skills to advanced dance performance.
Looking back on my college search process, I remember really wanting to meet students to try and get a sense of the school's culture. To help you guys out, I decided to interview a couple '24s to help you guys get a sense of Dartmouth!
