We’re saying goodbye to the 95 History majors who are graduating from Dartmouth College the day after tomorrow, June 10, 2012. Here’s a sample of their plans for the immediate future:
I will be working as a history teacher at a charter high school with Teach for America in Brooklyn, New York.
Angela Y. Cheng:
I’ll be around Dartmouth for another year working as the 2012-2013 Presidential Fellow for Advancement.
I will be moving to New York and working at the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
I will be working at Barclays Capital as an Investment Banking Analyst next year in New York City.
Christopher T. Dooley:
I will be working at Deerfield Academy in Massachussetts, teaching English and coaching soccer and lacrosse through the Academy’s Teaching Fellowship program.
Next year I plan to stay in Hanover to do independent research that will build on my thesis work. I’ll be studying the experiences of conscientious objectors in New Hampshire during World War II, with funding assistance from a Dartmouth General Fellowship. I hope to be speaking on the topic around the state with help from the New Hampshire Humanities Council. I will also be playing traditional New England and British Isles fiddle music in the Upper Valley.
I will be working in New York City as a paralegal.
I will be working at Palantir, a tech firm that produces big data analytics software for government and financial applications, in Palo Alto, CA.
I will be doing consulting for Oliver Wyman in New York City.
I will be in New York City, working as a litigation legal assistant with the corporate law firm Cravath, Swaine and Moore. Looking forward to it though I don’t want to say goodbye to Hanover.
Glenn S. Kim:
I will be teaching social studies somewhere in Connecticut as a Teach for America corps member.
I will be teaching English in Thailand through a Fulbright Grant.
I will be working in venture capital in Boston.
S. N. Tyler Melancon:
I will be a Presidential Fellow next year at Dartmouth working in the Office of the President. I will also be applying to medical school.
This summer I will be moving to New York City where I will be working for the executive search firm Russell Reynolds. Though graduation will be bittersweet, I’m glad that many of my classmates will also be moving to New York! I’d like to thank all of the wonderful faculty in the history department for defining my academic experience here at Dartmouth. A special thank you to my adviser and mentor Professor Lagomarsino. I can only hope that one day I will be as good at my job as Professor Lagomarsino is at teaching history!
I will be living in New York and working in merchandising at Quidsi.
I will be getting my masters in public health at Tulane University.
I will be working as a second grade literacy teacher at a charter elementary school in San Francisco, California for the next two years, and then after that I hope to live a relatively semi-nomadic lifestyle and move to New Orleans to work in environmental education for a while before moving abroad.
James C. Reed:
I will be working next year as a Healthcare Investment Banking Analyst at Stifel Nicolaus Weisel in New York City. I am extremely excited about the opportunity.
I will be attending the Roger Williams University Law School in Bristol, RI
I’ll be in Boston working at Altman Vilandrie & Co., a consulting firm specializing in the Telecom, Media, Tech, and Energy industries.
I will be working at Eastside Prep in East Palo Alto, California. I will be working in a residential faculty position at the school which serves talented but under-resourced students from the Bay Area.
Elizabeth A. Short:
I will be teaching History and coaching track next year at Emma Willard, an all-girl’s school in NY. I will also be getting a Masters in History from Union.
I’ll be spending much of the year as a Lombard Fellow (through the Dickey Center) in Nepal, working on an impact evaluation study of an education program run by a small Kathmandu-based NGO called ‘The Learning Center’ and looking to enroll in a graduate program in the Fall of 2013.
Maarten van Ess:
I will be saying goodbye to cold winters, pastels, Boston sports teams, and Cape Cod vacations and saying hello to cowboy boots, “ten gallon” hats, and year-round summer when I move from New England to the Lone Star State after graduation. I will be working in Houston, TX at an energy trading company doing logistics.
I will be attending University of Pennsylvania Law School next year.
I will be working in Atlanta Georgia at Mcmaster-Carr in business management business training.
Good luck to you all, and please stay in touch!
