Student Spotlight Tianyang Wang '15

Born and raised in Shanghai, China, Tianyang "Tracy" Wang came into Dartmouth knowing that she wanted to be a Geography major because of her passion for urban planning and traveling. She's fascinated by the inter-disciplinary nature of geography, especially urban geography, GIS, qualitative methods, and visual representations. She's currently working on her senior honors thesis, which explores the notions of home for international students at Dartmouth College. In this project, she adopts mainly qualitative and visual methods to examine how international students' notions of home have changed being away from home. Tracy holds this project dear to her heart, and hopes to give back to the international student community at Dartmouth through this thesis. After graduation, she hopes to stay connected to geography and urban planning and attend graduate school after trekking in the corporate life in Los Angeles for a couple of years.
