3 words that describe your first year at Dartmouth…

Unforgettable, crazy, enlightening

Why are you excited for DOC Trips 2013?

Trips is the first time that you really get a chance to connect with some of your fellow classmates. Your trippees can potentially be friends that you will carry with you throughout your time at Dartmouth. It’s a time to let go, get a little dirty, and have a lot of fun, all the while learning a bit about yourself, your trippees/trip leaders, and Dartmouth in general. I’m just excited to be back out in the wilderness meeting ’17s.

The best or worst advice you received during your first-year at Dartmouth…

Best advice: The prof makes the class. Classes that might never seem interesting in a million years can be awesome if the prof is.

What is your favorite thing to eat on campus?

General Tso’s Queso @ the Hop

What has been the highlight of your time at Dartmouth thus far?

Snowboarding every single weekend of winter term was pretty great.

What was the most important item you forgot to pack before coming to Dartmouth to move in?

A fan and pillows. That first night in the dorm without them was rough.

Your ideal Saturday afternoon at Dartmouth…

Wake up with no alarm set, hit up FoCo or the Hop, then attempt to do some homework out on the Green. Once I realize that homework on the Green doesn’t actually happen, I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing with friends.
