A Heart of Gold

COURTESY OF CHIARA SANTIAGO

Although your four years in college will likely be some of the best of your life —especially at a place like Dartmouth — it can be tough sometimes, especially in your freshman year. You’re in a new place, surrounded by strangers and feeling lonely at times is inevitable. So, finding someone with whom you instantly connect with early on — someone who you can go for guidance, advice or just to talk about your daily life — can be pretty special. Such is the situation that Chiara Santiago ’15 found herself in when she first came to the College. Her freshman fall, Santiago was running errands at Stinson’s Village Store when she met Mary, one of the employees. She immediately noticed that Mary was someone who upperclassmen seemed to have an especially close relationship with. Santiago said she envied the bond Mary had with students, and vowed to maintain contact with her herself. She said she would talk to her whenever she went into Stinson’s, and by the end of her freshman fall, she and Mary had already developed a close, “symbiotic” relationship. The two continued to share a connection throughout Santiago’s sophomore and junior years. This fall, when she… Read more »

15 Courses to Consider for 15W

It’s the time of term again, when the layup lists are circulating and you have consultations with your dean and/or besties to determine the perfect combination of classes for next term. If you are looking for a perfect third class, look no further. A senior selecting courses for the last time just scoured the ORC and did all of your work for you.  Full disclosure: I’m not the biggest fan of loading up on pure layups just for the sake of having no work. The one reputed layup I registered for what was possibly the most boring class I took at Dartmouth. Afterward, I swore to myself that I would never take a class again just because it was supposed to be easy. That being said, some of these courses are easier than others. But don’t take Dinosaurs if you don’t like dinosaurs! 1) ENGS 12 (10A) Robbie — Design Thinking (TAS)  From the ORC: “A foundation course on the cognitive strategies and methodologies that form the basis of creative design practice. Design thinking applies to innovation across the built-environment, including the design of products, services, interactive technology, environments and experiences.” While the projects can take up a lot of… Read more »

Homecoming: Thoughts from an ’18

In case you have been living under a rock and/or you haven’t looked up from your notes because you’ve been studying for midterms, Dartmouth Homecoming is this Friday, October 17!!!!! Coming to Dartmouth, I knew two things about Homecoming – first-years run around a huge bonfire, and it’s one of the few times a year when you have to lock your door. My knowledge of Homecoming remained frighteningly scant until this past weekend, when people finally started talking about it and my UGA gave us the lowdown at our floor meeting. Here are a few thoughts/questions I have as it approaches. 1) How am I supposed to dress for the bonfire? My UGA casually mentioned that things have been known to melt or burn at the bonfire (as it is after all, a massive fire). I know enough to not touch it (not trying to get arrested) but what if I accidentally get too close and my eyebrows are singed off? And it’s going to be cold, but also really hot near the fire, and I’ll get even warmer running those 118 laps (just kidding). I guess I should bring layers? But where will I put them?! #struggles. Regardless, I… Read more »
