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 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 

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 

Jumping in (where you hadn’t expected)

Marcy H. TP'14, June 05, 2012

One of my favorite parts of ASW (Admitted Students Weekend) back in April was the mock class we participated in. As a partner rather than a student, I had not expected this to be the case.      We’d had a busy day, taking a tour of Continue Reading
