Alice L. – T’14, December 05, 2012

Alumni and recruiters are much more helpful and willing to engage you than you think. They are excited to come back to campus to meet Tuck students. Also, don’t underestimate how much your classmates can help in your job search – everyone comes from all different kinds of Continue Reading 


Winter Boutique/Craft Sale

Claire B. TP14, December 03, 2012

    Will and I live in Sachem Village, which is primarily graduate student housing located about 1 mile down Main Street from campus.  One of the huge perks of living here (in my opinion) is the proximity to other Dartmouth students--many Tuckies and Tuck families live here, but it' Continue Reading 


Snow!

Marcy H. TP'14, November 30, 2012

We got our first real snowfall last night-- light flurries overnight that accumulated to just an inch or two of snow.  Ok, perhaps not that impressive, but it was just enough to cover everything with a light blanket of white and make everything look very pretty.  The children Continue Reading

(Part) of what makes Tuck great: Tripod Hockey

Dennis D. - T'14, November 21, 2012

I grew up in Florida.  My idea of ice is a snow-cone.  Despite a preview of cold weather during my college days, I have spent the last six years in Los Angeles.  When it comes to ice-skating, I'm somewhere between "Novice" and "Ouch! That had to Continue Reading 


Partner groups, clubs, and activities

Claire B. TP14, November 19, 2012

Tuckies are pretty awesome, but let's be honest... so are Tuck Partners (TPs).   They continue to impress me in so many different ways--too many to delve into in a single post.  For now, I thought I'd post a broad overview of the numerous and diverse Continue Reading 


Frosty

Marcy H. TP'14, November 18, 2012

The temperatures are dropping.  We had our first "snow" a week or two ago-- it was too warm to stick, but it was still pretty magical to watch the little white snowflakes swirling through the air (at least to this winter-weather novice).  However, while it's been too Continue Reading 


Kids @ Tuck
