Featured image: He!Viva Dada by Jean-Michel Humeau, one of my favorites from Le Centre Pompidou. My first few days abroad were spent yearning for somewhere else. From dark and wet 45 F degree weather in Newark, NJ, I left for Glasgow. Once landed, the taxi ride from the airport to my flat  revealed a town not unlike the surroundings of where I call home: dark and wet 8 C weather, fading Victorian charm, muddy rivers, low industrial buildings, looming gentrification…

HANNAH GAVEN | HANOVER, NEW HAMPSHIRE | POST 4

Featured image: Above is a picture of me and my boys. The dual degree program (3/2 program) is mostly made up of guys, so I’ve been learning how to be a bro. I now fully understand the phases “cracking open a cold one with the boys” and “Saturdays are for the boys.” Rush, rather recruitment, is overwhelming for everyone involved. At least, here at Dartmouth it’s very overwhelming. I thought once I had gone through the process as a potential…

Featured image: On the first snow of winter term, students have a snowball fight in the Green. I nailed an athlete in the butt, so I’m pretty happy with my performance. After the snowball fight I made some snow angels. Last week I came back for the winter term. I was sort of dreading it, but found myself quite happy to be back. I know that might seem surprising given my last update, but it’s true. On the first day…

TAMIKA WHITENACK | ATLANTA, GEORGIA & QUITO, ECUADOR | POST 1

Featured image: I love the mountains! A view from my bedroom window in Quito. My great study abroad adventure began with two weeks in the United States, traipsing around the state of Georgia. Along with the 17 other students on the program, we ventured from the big city of Atlanta to the small college town of Athens, out to the rural farms of Albany, and finally back to Atlanta. From Atlanta, we flew to Quito, Ecuador, where we have spent…

ISABELLA MIGANI | DUBLIN, IRELAND | POST 4

Featured image: Bye Trinity! Smell ya later. Goodbye from Dublin!- I’m gonna miss the rashers and beans 🙁 . I’m going to miss everybody! I never thought I’d say it, but I’m also going to miss Irish food. I’m a huge tea fan, and the sheer amount of afternoon tea shops in Dublin had me LIVING. If you’re an afternoon tea connoisseur like myself, you always eat the pastries first and the actual savory food last, it’s a science. Other…

MIRA MICHELS-GUALTIERI | VIÑA DEL MAR, CHILE | POST 4

Featured image: It is ridiculous that nature creates things this beautiful: Laguna Verde @ Cerro Castillo. In eight days, I will have lived in Chile for five months. FIVE ENTIRE MONTHS! I think part of what makes living in a different country so special is how quickly the things you believed about yourself can shift. For example, before leaving for Chile, I could not imagine going abroad for an entire year. I had a couple of friends who were, and…

Featured image: Scenes from London! Hello, kind reader! This will be my last post documenting my experience studying abroad! Are you ready? Let’s begin dissecting my experience 🙂 When I first arrived, I was honestly scared! I definitely felt like I was an alien who had recently plopped onto a mysterious portion of Earth. How could I get to Kelvinhaugh Street? Where were my accommodations? I had not yet purchased a SIM card. The handy-dandy Google Maps was not in…

JOHNSON LIN | BEIJING, CHINA | POST 4

Featured image: I took my longboard to Beijing Olympic Park and rode around for a few hours in the middle of October. The weather was perfect and the views were amazing. I am lucky enough to not have class on Friday so I could avoid any weekend crowds. For my last blog post, I wanted to revisit my goals for studying abroad as a nice way to conclude the semester. The first and foremost objective I had in mind when…

Featured image: The greatest photo of all time: My uncle and aunt from the states, my friends Mason, Sidra, Benji, and Kat, and Omar and his entire family all united for breakfast! Today, I was walking home and I saw a kid who could not have been older than seven ask his mom, “What is the relationship to what is happening right now to the Dictatorship? Is it because people want a better life but can’t have it?” His mom…

HANNAH GAVEN | HANOVER, NEW HAMPSHIRE | POST 2

Featured image: If you were looking for a true update on my sorority life, I’m sorry that this isn’t it. However, I did get initiated, and there is more to come ;). Once people find out that I am a 3/2 student, they always ask whether I like Dartmouth or Vassar better. Which is a fair question, but I know why they actually are asking that. They want validation that their school is better than Vassar. At least that’s what…
