"My participation with Rocky programs started my sophomore year, when I attended a workshop on project management. I was starting a new student organization and felt that I needed personal skills and professional tools to manage it. That workshop was not only useful in my management of the organization, but also shaped my leadership style in and out of the classroom." --H. Gustavo Ruiz Llopiz ’14

"The Rockefeller Center occupies an important niche on campus, forging a bridge between college life and pursuits after graduation by training and mentoring the next generation of leaders. Through programs at Rocky, I have built on my competencies and capabilities as a leader, and I am confident that these skills will help me succeed in the post-college years." --Nicholas Judson '14

“I first wandered into Rocky one November night during my freshman fall as a rookie reporter for the campus newspaper, The Dartmouth. The College Democrats had put together a small rally for Annie Kuster, and I shyly tagged along to document the event. I remember being so impressed that this group of students were coolly and professionally dealing with Kuster, staking their small claim in the landscape of New Hampshire politics. I liked that Rocky wasn’t just a place for learning, but also for getting involved.” --Clair Groden '14

“During my junior winter, I had the privilege of working at the White House in the Office of Public Engagement....I may not have even applied for the position without Rocky, as it was only after sitting down with Sadhana [Deputy Director of the Rockefeller Center] that she convinced me I stood a chance of getting accepted. Sadhana probably saw something that I didn’t have the perspective to see yet: that my time at Rocky was truly a blessing of resources and mentorship that made me a strong applicant.”  --Adrian Ferrari '14

"The [Policy Research Shop] project represented one of the things I most appreciate about Dartmouth and about Rocky specifically: emphasis on interdisciplinary learning as well as creative applications of coursework from multiple classes." --Anne Ressler '14

Although it took me several years to figure out what career path I would pursue, the flexibility of the Policy Minor and the unique opportunities provided by the Policy Research Shop allowed me to pursue my evolving interests while gaining the real-world experience that helped me to land my dream summer job.

"It was not until sophomore year that I made a firm commitment to be involved in the Rockefeller Center. I enrolled in the Management and Leadership Development Program. This fantastic program laid the groundwork for what I believe to be my professional success in college." --Malcom Leverett '14

Dartmouth, for me, was the obvious choice. Having only attended small schools, I realized later in the college search process that I needed an isolated college town. Further, I needed the academic rigor and breadth of co-curricular opportunities I was exposed to in grade school and high school. Dartmouth’s reputation obviously preceded it, but I wouldn’t have been sure until I visited.

"Through participating in Rockefeller Leadership Fellows, I have learned and practiced management and leadership skills such as negotiation, delegation, decision-making, giving and receiving feedback in a constructive way… Aside from skills, I have also learned the importance of knowing your mission and making the people around you the best they can be in whatever they are doing." --Hunter Kappel '14
