Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 1999

The teaching at Dartmouth is exceptional and the professors are very approachable. The Dartmouth run off campus programs are amazing and most students take advantage of them. The coming and going of students on campus creates a dynamic atmosphere - one that promotes the sharing of new ideas. The school spirit is incredible too - just a very special place to go to school.

What advice can you offer other students?

Do not acquire significant loan debt without performing proper research/due diligence on your investment. Apply for internships in your potential career to evaluate whether or not the degree program is a good fit.

Tell us about your college experience.

College was a good fit for me though I was not as much into the social/drinking scene as many other students. This was fine for me though; I'm very comfortable following my own path. But I loved my courses and professors, and being involved with dance and campus organizations.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would choose the same degree, but I would also take science/public health-related courses. I want to pursue a career as a Nutritionist and Yoga Teacher, so having an academic background might have helped me when applying for graduate programs.

What advice can you offer other students?

Be open to taking a variety of courses and get involved with as many groups as you're interested. Also, don't let anyone tell you that what you want to do isn't "right" or that you should pursue something else because it's easier or the more traditional route. You'll be happiest when you follow your passion and heart.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2011

Tell us about your college experience.

Dartmouth is a liberal arts school, and I was interested mostly in the knowledge, civic virtue, and intellectual growth that accompanied my education rather than any direct connection to salary or vocation after graduation.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would not change a thing. I would rather have a basis in humanities, sciences, politics. literature, history than a narrow technical degree. I might lose some salary for it but it has made me a more well-rounded individual and a healthy intellectual life marks a better life than a larger paycheck.

What advice can you offer other students?

Don't worry about finding your dream job. Take opportunities and risks, and find your passion where you are planted. Read Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken." It is silly to look at forks in the road of our lives with awe and trepidation. Just choose and pursue it with passion and hard work.
