10 Questions for Aliza Green ’15
What DOC Trip are you leading this fall?
I’m leading a cabin camping trip at Billings Lodge.
What are you studying?
I am currently undecided, but leaning towards an English major and possibly attempting pre-med.
What DOC Trip did you go on?
I went on a mountain biking trip last year!
3 words that describe your first year at Dartmouth…
Wonderful. Liberating. Circuitous.
Why are you excited for DOC Trips 2012?
I’m excited to be up at Dartmouth during the brief (but beautiful!) warm period, and cannot wait to meet all the new ’16s and welcome them to Hanover!
The best or worst advice you received during your first-year at Dartmouth…
Remember that adapting to college is not an easy or quick process (no matter how many times your friends from home say that they were “obsessed!” on the first day of school – many of my friends who said this later admitted that they were lying), and that it is completely normal and natural to take a while to find your place and feel comfortable.
What kind of animal would you want to be?
I would like to be a ring tail lemur. Or possibly a cape buffalo.
Favorite Dartmouth memory so far?
The day I discovered the brick oven pizza station at the fall farmers market on the green.
The one item you forgot to pack when you came to Dartmouth…
Your ideal Saturday afternoon at Dartmouth…
Waking up without an alarm, eating a meal involving bacon, and going winter tubing at Arrowwood (a tiny ski mountain close to campus).
