3 words that describe your first year at Dartmouth?
There, then gone.

Why are you excited for DOC First-Year Trips 2014?
My trip leaders were extremely reliable role-models. Knowing upperclassmen who already knew the ins-and-outs of Dartmouth made a huge difference going into fall term. I’m excited to pay that favor forward; I honestly can’t wait to meet and befriend my trippees.

What’s your favorite thing to eat on campus?
Novack’s Turkey Gobbler Sandwich with a bag of kettle-cooked salt and vinegar chips (reminds me of Thanksgiving).

What has been the highlight of your time at Dartmouth thus far?
Since I happen to be on campus this summer, I got to see my favorite musician, Andrew Bird. A truly life-changing performance.

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

What’s your ideal Saturday afternoon at Dartmouth?
I would visit the Connecticut River with a few of my closest friends. I’d dip my legs into the cool water and soak in the sunlight.

What piece of advice would you give to incoming freshman?
You know nothing. Yes, college is freedom and excitement, but it’s also intimidation and bewilderment. Therefore, Dartmouth can break you if you don’t seek out support. Look to upperclassmen for dependability and advice.
