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 Tradition

Harbor Cruise

Before the whirlwind of classes, the whole Dana community goes on a big ferry in Boston for a Harbor Cruise. While on the ferry, we dance on the deck, take pictures and eat really good food. Most importantly, we are given a fun opportunity to bond and make new friendships that will strengthen and build as we progress through our time at Dana.

Favorite Class Project

Lit Comp II Editorial

In my Literature and Composition II class, we were given the assignment of writing an editorial about anything of interest. I decided to base my editorial on the status of gender equality in Thailand. As an international student from Thailand, this topic sparked a particular interest for me. Through this assignment, I have realized my passion for women empowerment, not only in the United States but through an international perspective, too.

Favorite Dana Class

AP Statistics

In my sophomore year, I decide to challenge myself and take an AP course. These classes are known to be rigorous, thus intended for 11th and 12th graders. Entering the class, I was the only sophomore. At first, it was definitely intimidating. But as the year progressed we bonded as a class, despite being composed of mostly 12th grade students. In this course, I was able to bond with girls from different grades while preparing material for the AP Statistics Exam.

Favorite Activity

Model United Nations (UN) Team

In my freshman year, I was invited to join the Model United Nations (UN) team at Dana. Since joining the team, I learned new skills like research, debate and collaboration that I will utilize for the rest of my life. I won “Best Oratory Skills” at a conference, and went to Columbia University and Dartmouth College, where we won “Best Large Delegation” for the 5th consecutive year in a row. Although awards are important, the friends that I have made while on the team are the highlight of my Model UN experience.

Favorite Place on Campus

Johnston Dorms

My favorite place on campus is the Johnston Dorms. With the new renovations, the dorms are a lively and inviting place for boarders and day students to relax and hang out.

Favorite Dana Memory

Senior/Sophomore Tradition

I will never forget the moment when my senior (from the Senior/Sophomore tradition) tapped my shoulder and I turned around to see her. It was so exciting because you finally get to see the person who has been gifting you with candy, making you posters and dressing you in ridiculous costumes all week long.
