Number One Reason I Recommend Dalton: The discussions had with my peers in and out of
the classroom! You will always find someone who is willing to engage in analytical conversation
with you whether it be about the rise of populism or how the cafeteria’s cinnamon raisin bagels
are the best bagels. Case closed.
Favorite Dalton moment: The ability and creativity of students when it comes to how many
people can fit into one elevator. It really is an art form.
Study snack of choice: You can never ever go wrong with pistachios.
