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.
Hollye Swinehart ’18 spent most of her childhood in Collingswood, NJ. She is studying studio art and government and interning with the Hop Design Studio. Hollye says: “I am excited to be interning with the Hopdesign studio. I look forward to expanding my ability to convey information in a visually and aesthetically pleasing way. I also am excited to expand student interest in Hop events by utilizing social media.”
Hollye’s top five Hop events for fall:
Hostiles (film, Telluride at Dartmouth): I am interested in watching this particular film as it deals with a complex subject matter of Native American lands and culture in the United State’s history.
I, Claude Monet, Exhibition on Screen in HD: As a studio art major, I have admired Monet’s work for many years, and I look forward to delving into his work in a new format.
Detroit (film): This movie is already a popular topic of conversation as it conveys the Algiers Motel incident. I would like to see the movie to see how this historical event is addressed.
Wind River (film): I want to see this film because I have only heard positive reviews.
Del Sol Quartet and ZOFO: I am excited to see Del Sol perform in person; having grown up playing the violin, I have a special appreciation for string quartets.
