Article Type 

The Rockefeller Center Open House drew over 100 First-Year students to the Hinman Forum on Monday, September 20.  Members of the Class of 2014 came to check out both curricular and co-curricular program offerings - reviewing informational displays, picking up information sheets, and talking with Rockefeller Center staff and upper-class students who have been affiliated with the Center.  New students spoke with curricular program representatives about public policy courses and the public policy minor, the Policy Research Shop, Dartmouth-Oxford Exchange Program at Keble College, and funding for senior honors thesis work.  Interested students also discussed the First-Year Fellows Program, Civic Skills Training, public policy internship funding, and leadership programs (Management and Leadership Development Program and Rockefeller Leadership Fellows) with the co-curricular team.  The four student-led discussion groups were promoted by current discussion leaders, and will begin the week of September 27th.  Attendees learned about the Center’s fall-term Public Programs, as well as the role that Dartmouth plays in the democratic process, with leaders from various campus political groups on hand to talk about their group’s upcoming events.  In all, over 350 students connected with the Rockefeller Center during Orientation 2010 events which included the Open House, a Public Policy Minor Open House on Friday, September 17 and the campus-wide Information Expo on Wednesday, September 15.
