Dartmouth students reflect on their sense of safety after shooting

Following Friday night’s shooting on School Street, many Dartmouth students no longer feel safe in Hanover. Carlos Polanco ’21 said that for many who come from areas where gun violence is common, “Hanover was an escape from that.” He added that before Friday, he considered Hanover a “bubble of safety” and that Friday’s shooting “shattered” this idea and caused him to re-evaluate how he felt on campus. “For many people, [the shooting] was a wakeup call to the fact that Dartmouth is not an isolated bubble from the rest of the world,” Jennifer West ’20 said. Mariana Peñaloza ’22 said that she, too thought she left violence behind when she came to Dartmouth.
