Class of 2015

Notes from the Field: Rocio Cara Labrador ’15

Rocio Cara Labrador ’15 is the Class of 1971 Named Intern for the 2015-2016 academic year. She interned at the Delegation of the European Union to the United Nations during the 2016 winter term.

The delegation, which speaks for and facilitates cooperation among the national delegations of the 28 countries of the European Union, is part of the foreign service of the European Union and works to maintain bilateral and multilateral relations with the other Member States of the UN, as well as tackles pertinent global issues.

As an intern, Cara was given huge responsibilities that she earned from her high experience levels. She primarily wrote speeches and statements, but also composed briefings on topics such as peacekeeping operations--giving her the opportunity to work alongside the chief of staff and head of public diplomacy efforts.

The Rockefeller Center’s Annual Senior BBQ

Many members of the Class of 2015 turned out for this year’s Senior BBQ on June 4th under the Rocky overhang. Rocky uses this annual tradition as an occasion to celebrate its wonderful seniors, many of whom have spent a significant portion of their Dartmouth time at the Center.

The event was organized by Robin Frye, Program Officer for Co-Curricular Programs at the Center, as she has done since 2009. “The only task that has consistently been in my suite of responsibilities is the senior BBQ,” recounts Robin. Must be because she throws a really good BBQ.

Rocky and Me: Mahnum Shahzad '15 Senior Profile

The Rockefeller Center encourages its outgoing seniors to reflect on their experiences at Dartmouth as part of a series called Rocky and Me.

I had very grandiose notions about leadership and growth when I came to college. College applications had me convinced that I was destined to change the world. Of course I had no clue what any of it meant or how I would eventually get there.

Perhaps that is why I decided to participate in the Management Leadership Development Program (MLDP). The experience taught me about the constant process of developing leadership skills and how leadership is a vision as much as the skills that one needs to become an effective leader. It redefined leadership for me as something less hierarchical and situation-driven to something that one could practice personally.

Rocky and Me: Tyler Stoff '15 Senior Profile

With the intimacy of a liberal arts college and the opportunities of a large university, Dartmouth was a clear choice for me from the start of my college search. I have had the privilege of engaging in a wide variety of arts and sciences during my time in Hanover, and the Rockefeller Center somehow came to inextricably entwine itself in my four years every step of the way.

When I matriculated at Dartmouth, I was immediately drawn to the Rockefeller Center because of the incredible academic and co-curricular opportunities it offered to students beginning in their first year. I knew I was interested in American politics and in pursuing a major in Government, but the Rockefeller Center really focused and expanded that interest into a passion.
