Hello, ’19s!

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season! I was lucky enough to visit campus earlier this fall term for Homecoming, and was reminded of Dartmouth’s traditions and my freshman fall. I remember the anticipation of starting my first classes, my first time braving the King Arthur Flour line in the library, becoming friends with floormates I consider some of my closest friends to this date, and, of course, running around the Homecoming bonfire.

After a bit of my own reminiscing, I wanted to hear what others remembered about our freshman fall, ’15F. Our class shared memories of our first term on campus.

Jovanay Carter shared, “When I think back to ’15F, I just remember feeling so free and happy and hopeful! I could fly off the adrenaline that I had pumping into my body the day I finally moved into my dorm. I remember setting up my room right after trips and all but pushing my parents out the door because I could not wait to take it all in. I had been hearing for so long about this ‘future’ that was oh-so ‘promising,’ and I felt myself on the precipice of realizing that promise. That term I met my closest friends, had the best roommate I could have imagined, ate a whole lot of Food Court cookies and pizza, and truly surprised myself with my work ethic in classes. It was only the beginning of a long journey of successful terms and joyous occasions.”

Sally Sandoval wrote, “I remember my freshman fall thinking that the seniors were so much older than us and we were so far away from being in their position. My friends and I would get across campus on razor scooters, giggle non-sensibly on first-floor Berry, and gather together every night at 6 for Collis pasta and Family Feud. Four years later and after becoming those seniors I thought were so old, memories such as those stick out in my mind when thinking about ’15F.”

David Jelke shared, “The bonfire. I loved how our whopping 40-foot pile of burning oak (or whatever wood they used) literally set part of the campus on fire. Watching people walk, run, meander, giggle, and crutch around the fire like the cloak of a whirling dervish was trance-like. Almost made you want to touch it! This was also a momentous marker of the fact that we could now enter Greek spaces de jure for the first time.”

The class of 2019 has also been up to exciting things this fall!

Regan Gore recently moved to New York to start her new job as a healthcare associate at Skillcapital, a British consulting and executive search firm. She hopes to see a lot of other ’19s this fall, either in New York or up at Dartmouth!

The class of 2019’s resident international master in chess, Michael Bodek, competed at the U.S. Masters Chess Tournament.

Finally, I’m excited to announce that ’19s for Financial Aid, the senior class gift, reached a participation rate of 48.1 percent and raised a total revenue of $26,009 when combined with a challenge supported by the class of 1969.

Thank you to all who shared updates and reflections!
