Girls learning, leading, succeeding
myDANA
Dana girls are curious, collaborative, respectful and enthusiastic. They are leaders: leaders of clubs, activities, sport teams and more. They are also aware of the many types of leadership, understanding that a supporting role is just as important as taking the lead. They know that Dana Hall is a place where they can be themselves and are encouraged to be who they want to be. See what they have to say about about their school.

Favorite Dana Class

Tradition of the Novel Class

My favorite class at Dana was Ms. Falcone's Tradition of the Novel. In this class, I was encouraged to share my viewpoint and open my mind to the opinions of others.

Favorite Dana Tradition

Midwinter

My favorite Dana Hall tradition is Midwinter. This is when I really felt like my class became a tight knit group, not just with each other, but with every generation of Dana alumnae.

Favorite Activity

Global Outreach

My favorite activity is Global Outreach. Last year with the program, I traveled to South Africa with 10 other Fordham students as a cultural immersion and service trip. In South Africa, I worked with different organizations and taught health classes to 7th grade students living outside Cape Town. As a member of the peer education group while at Dana, I taught younger students how to live healthier lives, which definitely helped me structure my lessons in South Africa.

Proudest Accomplishment

Intern for ELLE Magazine

The achievement I'm most proud of so far is getting the opportunity to intern for ELLE Magazine. I worked as a part of the sales, advertising and events team to help executives research and plan everything from beauty events to editorials. It was an incredible experience and was something I had always dreamed of doing. Being able to work in fashion and combine it with business was something I was not sure existed, but getting this internship was the perfect combination. Working at a magazine like ELLE is definitely something I hope to do again in the future.

Dana Influence

Advisors

My Dana teachers and advisors shaped my life in more ways than I can list. They were always filled with words of encouragement, from help on a math problem to long-term life advice that influenced my personality and character to this day. When I talk about my Dana teachers to my college friends, they are amazed at our personal and close-knit relationships.
