Kyle Mullins ’22 comes to Hanover from sunny St. Petersburg, FL. In high school, he was Editor-in-Chief of The Chronicle high school newspaper, Honor Council president, a leading member of the Model UN team and a varsity track athlete. At Dartmouth, Kyle continues to pursue his passions for journalism and politics as a news reporter for The Dartmouth, a member of DartMUN, a public programming assistant for the Rockefeller Center, and a participant in the Great Issues Scholars program. He plans to study some currently undeclared combination of economics, history, government and public policy, and hopes to pursue journalism or politics after graduation. In the rare moments where he decides to relax, Kyle enjoys climbing at the Dartmouth climbing gym, listening to podcasts, reading far too much news and playing "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild."

The mental health crisis on college campuses across the nation has come under scrutiny. In a recent study focusing on the eight Ivy League schools, Dartmouth earned an “F” for its leave of absence policies in a new white paper — a paper that seeks to explain an issue and persuade readers of the authors’ philosophy — from the Ruderman Family Foundation, a private philanthropic foundation that advocates for disability rights.
