First-Year Family Weekend
A couple weekends ago was First-Year Family Weekend, a time in which families of first-year students are able to get a taste of their child’s life at Dartmouth. Our parents and siblings arrive on campus, receive info about the scheduled events and activities, and experience a beautiful, spring weekend at Dartmouth! One of the many activities sponsored by the school was the Tower Room Tour. Students and their families are able to climb through the tower of Baker-Berry library to experience an incredible view of the entire campus and its surrounding beauty. Kayden climbed the tower with her mom and younger sister, and was able to take brochure-worthy pictures of the Dartmouth campus!
Another school-sponsored event was the Family Weekend Cookout behind the Baker-Berry library. All of us freshman volleyball girls were there with our families, chatting and eating delicious barbeque, while enjoying the splendorous spring weather. After the cookout, many lectures were held, ranging from talks on Off-Campus Programs to academic department lectures. In this way, the parents become more familiar with the opportunities available to Dartmouth students, and the students are able to showcase their bright expectations for the future.
