Tell us about a highlight of your time at Dartmouth so far.

15S (Spring term 2015), won’t go into the details of specific moments but a very exhilarating term from a social standpoint, mainly because my dance troupe had a ton of performances that term (unprecedented for us as a relatively new group). Never before have I put that much time and energy into an extracurricular activity, and every day was an exciting one to look forward to.

What’s the most important item you forgot to pack when you came to move in?

More resilient pants

If you could go back to the beginning of your first year here and tell yourself one thing, what would it be?

Be more adventurous and don’t be afraid to put off some work to try out or do something spontaneous, it’s definitely worth your while.
