Spring Break in the Upper Valley

Marcy H. TP'14, March 29, 2013

While many of our fellow Tuckies and TPs spent their spring break on ski trips or traveling to far-flung countries like Japan, Israel, and many other amazing locations around the globe, we instead chose to stick around Hanover. It was so nice to have Zach home and able to relax Continue Reading 


New Year’s and my Tuck Bucket List

Partner Post Archive, January 02, 2013

Happy New Year everyone!!  We spent New Year's up here in NH and had a great time skiing, laughing, and relaxing with fellow Tuckies and TPs.  Many of us left town to spend time over winter break with our families, though I must say I was really 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 


Shopping in the area

Claire B. TP14, November 26, 2012

"The nearest Target is an hour away, and the nearest Bed Bath and Beyond is an hour and fifteen minutes!!" How ever is one supposed to move into a new place without these two staples??  I remember hearing those distances and thinking our move to Tuck would be a 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 


Living in Hanover: Indoor Play (or, keeping the kiddoes busy when it’s too cold to play outside)

Marcy H. TP'14, November 13, 2012

The weather has held up well enough so far this year (it was sunny and in the 60's yesterday!) so we've been enjoying lots of outdoor play while it's been so nice. However, as the days grow colder and daylight becomes more scarce we'll need to find Continue Reading 


Working in the Upper Valley

Claire B. TP14, November 11, 2012

Many partners who decide to relocate to the Hanover area while their student is enrolled at Tuck are concerned with finding work in the Upper Valley.  <-- That is an example of a generalization.  Read on, but please bear this in mind:   Everyone comes to Tuck Continue Reading 


Boston Lot Lake: Enjoying the last days of fall

Marcy H. TP'14, October 14, 2012

Last week we went on a hike up to Boston Lot Lake.  There's a longer trail you can take, but we opted for the shorter 10 minute walk up from a nearby parking lot.  It's a pretty easy hike, with a great reward at the end.   Continue Reading 


Fall Foliage at Sachem Village

Marcy H. TP'14, October 05, 2012

Watching the leaves turn over the past month has been nothing short of amazing. The view changes on a nearly daily basis. Truly, truly stunning.       var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www."); document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "google-analytics.com/ga.js' type='text Continue Reading 


Trombones, puppies, and apple crisp

Claire B. TP14, October 02, 2012

Question: what do trombones, puppies, and apple crisp have in common? Answer: My last Sunday involved these wide-ranging activities, and I learned about them all through resources specifically designed to connect Tuck partners. By way of background: I considered myself pretty proficient at facebook... until I moved to Hanover as Continue Reading 


The Upper Valley: Beauty All Around

Marcy H. TP'14, September 21, 2012

The past week I've found myself really feeling in awe of how beautiful the Upper Valley is.  I remember when we first moved here a couple months ago and felt in awe of how many trees there were and how GREEN everything was!  I love driving around Continue Reading 


To move or not to move?

Claire B. TP14, September 20, 2012

Let's face it: moving to the Upper Valley -- when you're not the one going to school there -- is a big "ask!" In all likelihood you don't already live here, meaning that Tuck will necessitate your student to move, meaning he or she is probably curious Continue Reading 


Life in (and around) Hanover: The Montshire Museum of Science

Marcy H. TP'14, September 18, 2012

I'd heard many great things about the Montshire Museum of Science, so it was one of the first things we wanted to check out once we got settled in the area.  I wasn't quite sure what to expect-- I thought it probably would be a neat indoor Continue Reading 


Dancing in the Rain

Juliet H. T'14, September 11, 2012

In the interest of full disclosure, Hanover is limited in shall we say ‘traditional’ forms of entertainment. The Upper Valley lacks the major sports teams, world-class museums, and famous restaurants that characterize the cities from which many of us hail. And for this, I could not be more Continue Reading 


Sights, scents and sounds of spring

Ken F. T'12, May 18, 2012

I still vividly remember the scent of the Tuck admissions materials. The rich paper was distinctive - crisp, luxurious, rustic - as though it had been made in an artisan paper mill in the admissions suite on campus. I half expected to turn up and find the whole school was Continue Reading
