The challenges of the ongoing pandemic are far from over, yet during the past 12 months Dartmouth students, faculty, and staff have worked hard to create an environment of active engagement and learning in a year unlike any other. There have been students on campus throughout the year, and this fall saw the most students on campus in Dartmouth’s history.
College Photographer Eli Burakian ’00, Multimedia Manager Robert Gill, and Office of Communications intern Julia Levine ’23 were on campus, too, to capture this unique time. While the landscape of social interaction has changed throughout the year, the beauty of Dartmouth’s location in the heart of New England continues to shine, reminding us to think beyond these difficult times as the seasons change and the world keeps turning. That’s not too difficult to do when immersed in a community of thoughtful, enthusiastic, and adventurous people.
Below is a selection of images, chosen by Burakian and Gill as some of their favorites, with their thoughts about each photo. These images remind us that even during hard times, amazing things can happen here at Dartmouth.
