Marcy H. TP'14, November 13, 2012The 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
Claire B. TP14, November 11, 2012Many 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
Marcy H. TP'14, October 14, 2012Last 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
Marcy H. TP'14, October 05, 2012Watching the leaves turn over the past month has been nothing short of amazing. The view changes on a nearly daily basis.

Marcy H. TP'14, September 21, 2012The 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
Claire B. TP14, September 20, 2012Let's face it: moving to the Upper Valley -- when you're not the one going to school there -- is a big "ask!"

Marcy H. TP'14, September 18, 2012I'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
Juliet H. T'14, September 11, 2012In 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
Ken F. T'12, May 18, 2012I 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
