Dartmouth College, a member of the Ivy League, is a powerhouse of top-notch faculty and students, world-class undergraduate and graduate programs, and state-of-the-art facilities. With cutting edge resources, the intellectual reach, and competitive strength of a leading research university, Dartmouth's liberal arts education provides students with the tools and support to change the world. The D-Plan, Dartmouth's flexible quarter system, provides students, no matter what their major, the opportunity to choose between academic terms on campus and the flexibility to work, study, or serve off campus each year. More than 60% of students choose to study abroad, and over 75% pursue internships, among the highest percentages in the country.
At Dartmouth, community is important. As a student, you'll be given membership to one of six distinct House Communities, enhancing your engagement with classmates and faculty members alike. While on campus, students enjoy over 350 clubs and organizations, including 35 NCAA Division 1 teams, 40 performing arts groups, 22 cultural organizations, 23 community service organizations, and many more groups to support all interests and skills. 64% of your classes will have fewer than 20 students in them, and with a 7:1 student-to-faculty ratio, your access to Dartmouth's world-renowned faculty, who are scholars and innovators in their field, begins on day one. It's one reason why Dartmouth has been ranked in the top five in commitment to undergraduate teaching for 6 years in a row.
Once you graduate, your Dartmouth education supports you as you become a member of a highly regarded network of 79,000 active alumni. Dartmouth alumni include: Theodor Seuss Giesel '25 (Dr. Seuss), National Book Award Winner Louise Erdrich '76, United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand '88, writer and producer Shonda Rhimes ‘91, World Trade Center Memorial designer Michael Arad '91, Rhodes Scholar Ridwan Hassen '15, and Olympic gold medalist Hannah Kearney '15.
63% of students gave Dartmouth College 5 stars overall.
I loved Dartmouth. Coming from a California public school it was a tough transition. It is COLD in New Hampshire about 6 or 7 months a year and most of the students seemed to be from elite New England boarding schools. The academics are hard but not overwhelmingly so. I thought I would ski a lot but coming from the Lake Tahoe area, the mountains in NH and VT just weren't worth the freezing weather. I loved the small community of Hanover and the real all-American Collegiate feel to the campus, no to mention it's absolutely beautiful. As my time at Dartmouth passed, I grew to really love it - I think the small size and the weather lend themselves to very close friendships. Many of my best friends from Dartmouth are still my best friends today.
It has been 15+ years, so I'm sure that Dartmouth has changed. Dartmouth was a wonderful school for much more than its academics -- the student body, alumni, professors, location, traditions and history make Dartmouth a part of you for the rest of your life.
