Escaping the "Dartmouth Bubble"
At first I was sad that I would be missing spring term at Dartmouth, as it is probably the best time to be there. The weather is supposed to be warm, or at least not negative, and so many more people are on campus because of that. It’s overall a way happier and energetic atmosphere than Dartmouth is during the dreary winter with a lot fewer students on campus. However, I am now extremely glad I decided to take a break from being on the Dartmouth campus and expose myself to a new culture and different people. Studying abroad has already given me a great amount of much-needed perspective that I had lost while surrounded by the “Dartmouth Bubble” for two straight terms.
