What the students are saying about:

Dartmouth College

Dartmouth College

Dartmouth College is the kind of school that breeds an abundance of school spirit. Located in rural Hanover, New Hampshire, students at this Ivy League institution are proud of their school. “There’s this sense of community, fostered by the remote, safe and beautiful location, the relatively small size of the student body, and our unique traditions that makes Dartmouth so awesome. We’re like a little self-contained society,” one student says. Many others agree, seeing the school’s geographic isolation as a benefit: “Dartmouth has become my safe haven, a separate place where I’m free to aspire and take pleasure in what education has to offer.” “Safety: I can't think of another school where I'd feel so comfortable leaving my computer unattended in the library for several hours. Things rarely get stolen (unless you bring a NorthFace jacket to a frat and someone mistakes it for their own) and there is no serious crime that goes on (our newspaper publishes descriptions of the 'crimes' that go on in Hanover, which are humorous due to their tame nature.)” As a result, “although Dartmouth's location is really out of the way, it's such a beautiful and safe part of the country, you really grow to appreciate it.”
