Rocky and Me: Chris McCorkle '20 Senior Reflection

In the Rocky & Me series, Seniors reflect on their experiences during their time at Dartmouth.

When I came to Dartmouth, I had an open mind about what I might want to study in my time at the College. Aside from playing on the club hockey team, I really had no clue how I wanted to invest my time. I chose Dartmouth because of the strong sense of community and the ability to interact closely with my peers and professors. For me, this beneficial aspect of the Dartmouth experience was realized from the first class I took with the Rockefeller Center. As a sophomore, one of my close friends, also a Public Policy minor, suggested I take PBPL 45 – Introduction to Policy Research, the prerequisite course for the Policy Research Shop. However, I had not taken the required PBPL 5 course yet, as I did not think I would be a Public Policy minor at that point. However, Professor Shaiko was flexible and understanding enough to allow me to take PBPL 45 before taking PBPL 5, which set me on the path towards an incredibly fulfilling experience with Rocky.

Rocky and Me: Puja Devi ’19 Senior Reflection

In the Rocky & Me series, Seniors reflect on their experiences during their time at Dartmouth.

Puja Devi, a member of the class of 2019, initially found her way to the Rockefeller Center during her sophomore year when she started to think more about how to improve her own professional development. She decided to take the Management and Leadership Development Program (MLDP), which became an invaluable learning experience about what it means to be a leader. 

Throughout her time at Dartmouth, Puja found herself becoming more aware of her own strengths and weakness and how to differentiate a leader and a manager. Puja began to feel more comfortable in shared spaces, whether it be academic, casual, or professional settings, as well as learning how to find her voice as a leader.

Rocky and Me: Bethany Malzman '19 Senior Reflection

In the Rocky & Me series, Seniors reflect on their experiences during their time at Dartmouth.

Coming to Dartmouth, I was not sure about what I wanted to study specifically, but I knew that I wanted to take time to explore different centers and departments on campus. The Rockefeller Center drew my attention the beginning of my freshmen year, because it offered something unique that I wanted to pursue – practicing leadership and learning more about the social sciences.

Garret Collins ’20 on Management and Leadership

The Management and Leadership Development Program (MLDP) is a one-term program offered three times a year that prepares undergraduate students to succeed in their management and leadership endeavors both on and off campus.

Garrett Collins ’20, a Government and French Double Major from Brooklyn, NY, took MLDP in the spring of 2018. He joined the program after hearing about it from a friend who described MLDP as an impactful experience.

Garrett began the program with a desire to learn how to interact with his professors. Although he holds leadership positions on campus — serving on the leadership council for the Political Economy Project and acting as social chair for his fraternity — Garrett sometimes found talking with his professors intimidating.
