Dennis D. - T'14, November 17, 2012Tuck can be something different to every student; it can provide the launchpad to switch careers, the skills to progress up the corporate ladder, or the time to build your network and launch your own business. It is what you make it. As a parent, though, the academic and recruiting Continue Reading
Claire B. TP14, November 14, 2012I think it's accurate to say that most of us had never played ice hockey before Tuck, yet it's a huge part of the culture here. How can that be? Well, you don't have to know how to play hockey--or even how to skate--to get Continue Reading
Sumeeta K. - T'14, November 09, 2012Tuck is such an amazing place for so many reasons. One of the things that stands out to me when I think about what sets it apart, is the 24/7 learning environment that being in Hanover fosters. In Tuck terms, 24/7 learning means that the potential for my knowledge base to Continue Reading
Laura T'13, November 07, 2012One thing that clubs do is bring speakers on campus to discuss current events, initiatives, or goals. The Net Impact Club, a club focused on social impact activities, businesses, and organizations, recently brought Rosi Kerr, the Director of Sustainability at Dartmouth, to campus to have a lunch with a Continue Reading
Marcy H. TP'14, November 06, 2012Halloween in Hanover was great fun. On Halloween afternoon we got all the kiddos in Sachem Village together for a short parade to show off their costumes followed by a pizza party and, of course, trick-or-treating. It was really something to see our little neighborhood overrun by all Continue Reading
Claire B. TP14, October 30, 2012When Will was applying to schools, he of course registered to visit Tuck and participate in an interview while here. Part of the registration process was identifying whether or not he had a partner, and if so, if his partner (yours truly) would be be coming to campus with Continue Reading
Marcy H. TP'14, October 09, 2012Many people talk about the tight-knit community here at Tuck in general, and among the families living at Sachem Village. In the two months that we have lived here we have found it to be as warm, welcoming, and open as we had heard. The warm smiles and easy playdates Continue Reading
Blog Guest, October 03, 2012It is fall in Hanover, which is arguably the most beautiful time of the year. Leaves are changing, the weather is cooling, and you are able to re-introduce your favorite warm weather gear! Most people are out hiking, biking, fishing – enjoying all the upper valley has Continue Reading
Claire B. TP14, October 02, 2012Question: 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
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
Justin R T'13, May 27, 2012Wow. I can’t believe my first year is over. Fall A and B, Winter and Spring Terms. All over. What an experience it’s been. It was pretty difficult zeroing in on a particular topic to write about for this post because so much has happened in Continue Reading
Ken F. T'12, May 22, 2012My first class at Tuck was the Yellowtail case in AGM. My study group had spent literally hours preparing it - reading, analyzing, calculating, debating - and we were relatively efficient. Some groups went as far as to check flight schedules between cities mentioned in the case, to figure out Continue Reading
Luis G - T'13, May 16, 2012The dividend discount model is one of the valuation techniques I learned in Financial Statement Interpretation and Analysis, a class that prepares students to effectively analyze and interpret financial statements. Basically, the dividend discount model says that the value of a company is worth the discounted sum of all Continue Reading
Ken F. T'12, May 04, 2012It's real. It's actually happening. We T'12s are going to have to graduate and re-enter the real world. Soon. If you had asked me before spring break when I'd like to start work, I would have said, "tomorrow". Not that I wasn't having a great Continue Reading
