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!
Did you experience culture shock when you first arrived at Dartmouth? If so, what type of culture shock did you experience (i.e. was it relating to socioeconomic classes, ethnicities, etc) and how did you deal with it?
I think it would definitely depend on the person. In my experience, I came from a majority-white area, and so being around more people who looked like me was definitely different! However, I think a common occurrence of culture shock is with the reality that everyone at Dartmouth is really smart and successful. There are smart computer programmers, proficient writers, excellent speakers, creative engineers, practically professional athletes, and so much more. For me, that reality that I'm going to college with all these talented people was a culture shock, and it definitely led me to believe that I was just average and not talented. This response was normal, but it was important not only to realize my own worth and accomplishments but that I didn't put my identity into those accomplishments. It was also important to focus on doing my best, not necessarily being the best, something my dad always tells me.
So yeah! Not being the smartest person in the room is a culture shock that many Dartmouth students go through. But that's okay! As long as I know my worth, that's all that matters.
Happy New Year everyone! Welcome back to another episode of 'Adrian's adventures'. I'm your host Adrian. In this episode, I will be giving you a recap of my winter break (winterim). So sit back, and enjoy the show.
During Winterim, I worked at my family's pizza shop in Dana Point, California! I have spent so many of my childhood days working alongside my dad and will always cherish the memories that I have made in a place made of four walls.
I played out several scenarios in my head speculating how my first term of college would go throughout high school. In hindsight, those scenarios weren't the reality, and I think Dartmouth greatly contributed to that.
As an international student, affordability is often a big concern when picking which institutions to apply to. Let me tell you why that will not be on your mind when considering whether Dartmouth's right for you.
