Introducing, well, me! Hello from the Class of 2026!
I want to utilize this blog post as a space to offer tips and advice to '26s, as they embark on their transition into their first year.
I am using this blog post as my final reflection on my first year at Dartmouth College!
Going cliff jumping into a River with people you just met. Almost stepping on a snake. Having your first snowfall. There's a lot more, but that's why Dartmouth.
It's surreal that two terms of my freshman year already swung by. The last six months were filled with important lessons and personal growth. And I wanted to share what some of my "key" takeaways were!
As the term is nearing the end, West House, one of the six housing communities on campus, had one of their last events during Fall: a lodge dinner and overnight at Moosilauke!
While it is certainly easy to be captivated by all of the different events and opportunities at Dartmouth, it is important to remain connected to your family. Let's explore how you can do just that!
What is your advice for anyone younger than you, whether it is a prospective student or even a '25?
For any prospective students reading this, take a breath because everything will be okay. The process of applying and transitioning to college can be stressful, and you may lose sight of what's important to you.
People often say your first year at Dartmouth can be a rollercoaster, but I didn't expect to be building a literal rollercoaster during my second week of classes!
