Why are you excited for DOC Trips 2013?

I’m really excited because my trip leaders were so helpful to me when I was a trippee who knew very little about Dartmouth. I’m excited to see what the new students are thinking, and to see what kinds of questions have, and how I can assist in that transition.

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

The best advice that I received was actually from one of my trip leaders who said to know that rejection is real. You are going to face it. But, it’s okay if you get rejected from the things you apply for, I did, it’s part of the process. Keep trying, but embrace rejection for what you can learn from it.

Barbecue tender queso from the Hop.

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

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

I need to do a specific hair conditioning to take care of my hair, and I didn’t bring it. So, I had to wait for my parents to get it to me.

Your ideal Saturday afternoon at Dartmouth…

It would involve me, one or two other friends, my room, and some kind of Netflix Scandal/Grey’s Anatomy marathon.
