Claire B. TP14, December 11, 2012

It's finals week, which means the students have been busy at work preparing for exams.  So we leave them alone and go find our own fun This past weekend actually had gorgeous weather (sunny blue skies and low 40s in Hanover on Sunday!), so a few partners and Continue Reading 


Fall A & B: A Partner’s (and Family’s) Perspective

Marcy H. TP'14, December 07, 2012

When applying to Tuck and during our weekend here for ASW, Zach and I were often told that the first two semesters (Fall A, lasting approximately the 4 weeks of September, followed by Fall B which lasts from October through mid-December) are incredibly intense and busy and overwhelming.  As the 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 


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 


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 


Kids @ Tuck

Dennis D. - T'14, November 17, 2012

Tuck 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 


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 


Halloween

Marcy H. TP'14, November 06, 2012

Halloween 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 


Visiting campus as a partner

Claire B. TP14, October 30, 2012

When 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

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 


It Takes a Village

Marcy H. TP'14, October 09, 2012

Many 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 


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
