Rocky and Me

Rocky Senior Spotlight: Shloka Kini '13

My decision to come to Dartmouth was not something I planned. I applied to many schools as a senior in high school and only started choosing after I received admission. When I came to Dimensions at Dartmouth, I was struck by the picturesque campus, the focus on undergraduate education, and the programs at the Rockefeller Center. I knew from reading and hearing about Rocky programs that I wanted to be involved with the Rockefeller Center during my time at Dartmouth.

The main reason why I chose to attend Dartmouth was the sense of community that I felt here. From my first campus visit, to my admissions interviewer, to the alum that came to my house after I had been accepted to give me a Dartmouth t-shirt, everyone seemed so warm and inviting and genuinely seemed to care about one another. This was the type of community that I wanted to become a part of for the next four years and beyond.

“Reflecting back on my past four years at Dartmouth, it is clear that Rocky had such a large and wonderful impact on nearly every aspect of my time at Dartmouth. Through the center, I have grown academically, personally, and professionally. It has made me a better leader, more informed, and a more well-rounded person.”

“This internship was also valuable for me as I prepare for my career after Dartmouth. I will be attending Yale Law School next year with the hope of pursuing a career in criminal justice policy, and I believe my experiences with the public policy minor and Rockefeller Center programs have given me a solid foundation for this career path.”

Alumni Profile: Michael Randall '12

My decision to attend Dartmouth was motivated by two primary reasons: Dartmouth’s strong sense of community and its sterling academic reputation. Dartmouth provides the ideal fusion of a small liberal arts college and a large research university. I was excited by the potential to engage in scholarly research directly with professors on the cutting edge of their fields. Those same professors – not graduate TAs – also share their expertise in the courses they teach. I was also impressed by the variety of co-curricular and extracurricular opportunities available at Dartmouth, including those offered through the Rockefeller Center.
