  • For more than 36 years, the annual Arts at Dartmouth Award Ceremony has been celebrating the achievements of student artists.

President Jim Kim:

I have been consistently impressed by the exceptional quality and sophistication of the scholarship produced by our undergraduate students. The opportunity to engage deeply with a topic of interest and to conduct original research while further cementing close relationships with faculty is one of the hallmarks of the Dartmouth education. 

Dean of the Faculty of Arts & Sciences Michael Mastanduno

One of the things Dartmouth does best is to provide students with opportunities to collaborate with faculty to create new knowledge both in and out of the classroom. Years after graduating, this is what students remember about their time at the College.

You can see some examples of the exciting undergraduate work that has been featured on the President’s Office website as well.

Hope to see you there!

SENIORS: Some Words of Wisdom from Dean Remy

Dean Remy has some excellent thoughts for us graduating seniors that I think bear repeating on this blog.

Good afternoon,

Strange as it may seem, for those of you who are graduating, it is time to think about the goodbyes that you want to say before you leave Dartmouth.  It’s easy to get lost in your day-to-day deadlines and put off saying goodbye and thank you, but it’s also too easy to let the opportunity slip by completely.  I encourage you to carve out some time to reflect on those people at Dartmouth who have helped shape your experience and then to let them know.

Whether they are the freshman roommate who you haven’t really talked to in two years, a supervisor at your work study job, the nurse who got you through the flu,  the faculty member who pushed you to do better work than you knew possible, or someone who shared an encouraging word on a day that you needed it most, it may be that they don’t know they’ve touched you in a meaningful way.  Even the simplest acknowledgement means a great deal.

 

UPCOMING 4/21: Thesis Therapy!

For all you seniors who are currently up to their necks in thesis work, THESIS THERAPY is back by popular demand!

Caitlin Nicholson and Rachel Groh are hosting this event in Hitchcock Lounge (1st floor) this Saturday, April 21, from 2-3 PM. There’ll be free food (from Lou’s, no less!) and you can just come, take a break from all that research and writing, chat with other thesis students, and otherwise just chill out.

Senior Survival: Mastering Money Skills

ATTENTION SENIORS:

Are you confused/scared/frustrated/excited that you’ll be taking financial responsibility for yourself pretty soon?  

Dean Remy says:

You’ve had questions about financing graduate school; how to figure out the cost of living in an area ($40 is not enough to budget each month for heating oil in New Hampshire!); and how to decipher the value of a benefits package.

Alumni Relations and the Math department are teaming up to offer a series on mastering money management.
