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!
This class was a creative writing class, and it gave me a lot of insight into what I as an author should want my readers to do when they confront the piece. It was an amazing class, and it was so cool to be able to take it in London!
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!

I'm sure we've all seen those clips from movies about college with huge dance scenes and hundreds of people crowded into one room. For some that may sound like a fun weekend, but for the rest of us it's cause for stress and anxiety.
After having the most amazing fall term at Dartmouth, I was extremely excited to get back on campus for winter. As I got out of the Dartmouth Coach and first stepped on campus I was shocked at how cold it was.
