The McLaughlin Cluster, named for the late Dartmouth president emeritus David T. McLaughlin ('54, Tu '55), contains six residence halls and houses a total of 342 students. With brick exteriors, white trim, and copper roofs, the cluster reflects Dartmouth's traditional architecture. Each floor has a kitchen, lounges and living rooms, and study spaces. Goldstein Hall contains a student commons to serve the social needs of the cluster and the entire Dartmouth community, providing space for dinners, informal gatherings, dances, student performances, films, alumni events, and conferences.The McLaughlin Cluster is a mixed-class community with upperclass students living primarily in singles and suites and first-year students residing primarily in two-room doubles and singles.  The fourth floors of Bildner and Rauner are substance-free.

Rame Hanna
Office: 111 Goldstein (646-8554)

Hey Y'all! I am the Community Director for the McLaughlin Cluster. My name is Rame Hanna. I was born in Hollywood, California, and have lived there for the majority of my life. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Law at University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) and my Masters of Science in the Student Affairs in Higher Education (SAHE) program at Colorado State University (CSU). During my many years in higher education, I worked in a variety of unique roles from serving as an Assistant Director of Diversity and Outreach to becoming a Greek adviser for the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity. My biggest passion outside of student affairs and law is music. I have been dancing hip-hop and teaching choreography for over 5 years and currently serve as the adviser to Dartmouth's very own XS Crew and SHEBA. Feel
free to e-mail me if you have any questions.
