Each fall, the Hop welcomes a new batch of Dartmouth student interns. For the next academic year, these six juniors and seniors will spend 10 hours a week embedded in various Hop departments, learning the ropes in production, marketing, educational outreach, box office, house management, graphic design and more, and taking on important responsibilities in those Hop arenas.
We asked this year’s interns to introduce themselves and tell us what Hop events they most look forward to this fall.
Caroline Filan ’18, from Alpharetta, GA, is majoring in biomedical engineering and minoring in Native American Studies. She is interning in the Hop’s Students Teaching in the Arts (START) program (which places Dartmouth students in area classrooms where they work with teachers to develop arts instruction related to core curriculum). Caroline says: “I’m very excited to get new students involved in START. Since I began teaching my sophomore year, it has been one of the highlights of my time at Dartmouth, and I hope to allow more students to share those experiences.”
Caroline’s top five for fall 2017 are:
Intermediate Dance Master Class with Kyle Abraham: While dancing may not be my strongest suit, I always enjoy the ability to go out, move freely, and most importantly, have a good time!
Tracktown (film): Watching former Dartmouth athletes’ journey is incredibly cool. I love seeing female athlete’s success stories and the extra tie to Dartmouth is an added bonus!
Dartmouth Symphony Orchestra fall concert: It is a great time to go see how talented my friends and classmates are outside of an academic setting. It is beautiful to see everyone expressing their passions for music.
Wind River (film): With a background in Native American Studies and with Dartmouth’s connections to native populations, it is very exciting to see some of the issues faced by native populations come to the big screen in a major production and should be a must see!
