Class NotesView All Notes for Class of 2016
Hope you all had a wonderful summer! And hope you had a chance to hang out with your fellow Dartmouth ’16s. At the end of May I went on a trip to Nashville with Juhi Kalra, Er Li Peng,and Shay Vellanki. It was great to be reunited with some Dartmouth friends while exploring a new city, trying tasty restaurants, and enjoying live music.
Let’s see what exciting things our classmates are up to. Mariel Wallace is headed to the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business to get her M.B.A. Nkenna Ibeakanma is starting an M.F.A. in playwriting at Brown University. Her program is fully funded and has only two spots a year! Myles McMurchy is starting law school at NYU this fall.
In March Xanthe Kraft composed a musical setting for the celebration of the Mass titled “Mass of the Annunciation.” She’s very excited to be back in her hometown of Spokane, Washington, working and composing sacred music after completing her master’s in digital music from Dartmouth in 2018. She loves and misses her Dartmouth classmates, and looks forward to treating them to frozen yogurt if they are ever in the Spokane area.
Bryan Thompson and Addie Himmelberger ’15 are set to get married on August 24 in Luray, Virginia.
Justin Chan and Shayn Jiang ’15 were engaged on April 27. The proposal started with a scavenger hunt through some of the couple’s favorite spots in New York City with some of Shayn’s best friends from around the country. They ended at Creative Little Garden on the Lower East Side.
Lauren Schulte is moving to Nashville in August to begin a master’s program at Vanderbilt’s Peabody College of Education. She will be studying early childhood special education and applied behavior analysis. She’d be happy to meet up with anyone living in or visiting Nashville!
Matt Krantz is moving to Palo Alto, California, and starting a law degree at Stanford Law School.
Sarah Koulogeorge joined Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign as a budget operations associate at the start of the summer.
Olivia Samson graduated from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health with her master’s in public health and celebrated during Memorial Day Weekend with Charlotte Kamai, Laura McCulloch, Katie Papa, Maddie Wall, and Bri Williams in Ocean City, Maryland.
Congrats to everyone on their exciting updates! Thanks for reading and please continue emailing in news about you and your friends. I love hearing about what you all are up to!
