Even though I have only been at Dartmouth for a year I have already grown very attached to the school. I have met many great people and have learned a lot about subjects in which I am pursuing a degree and myself as a global leader. Dartmouth has been incredibly difficult however its ever-growing challenges only inspire me to improve.
I woke at 6am to sun rays cutting through a light fog over the Connecticut river and the fields of the Dartmouth’s student-run farm. I joined another guy on my freshman orientation trip for a run in the foggy hills. "I can’t believe I live here."
I wake between 6 and 7am most mornings for the two-minute bike ride to our boathouse. The Connecticut is generally calm; our oars are the only noise I hear, aside from the yells from a coach or rower as we lean into the oars, three boats of eight side by side in competition. On and off the water, the team is my strongest support group.
As an engineer, outside of class I press through differential equations, or try to better understand the theory of special relativity, by myself, with peers, at a session with teacher’s assistants, or with my professor. Rowing makes office hours hard to make, so I make appointments with professors, or contact one of my charismatic, wizard-like classmates.
I fall asleep by ten or eleven p.m. to get my eight hours almost every night, and I think I learned more during freshman year than in all my sleep-deprived high school experience. I programmed my first Arduino this year, and learned to solve a second order non-linear differential equation with matrices. Before, I never knew the destruction of the second temple of Jerusalem in the year 70 (C.E.) eliminated a centralized knowledge of a "correct" reading of the bible, leaving its meaning up to interpretation. I never before read between the lines of old English records of early interactions with Native Algonquians, to build a Native American side of the European colonization story. I learned that eating beef destroys mother nature more than mast anything else I do in a day, and so I no longer eat beef.
No matter my learning and rowing schedule, I never skip riding my bike, playing my fiddle, conversing with my peers, and enjoying the rural air.
Dartmouth is a great school with a great reputation. However, sometimes I think it is a better place to be from than to be going to. To rephrase, I think the benefits of being an alumni from Dartmouth may be better than the undergraduate experience. Regardless, I am learning a lot and surrounded by bright minds, both peers and professors. As a liberal arts school, very few classes provide practical skills. Many classes are about theories, identity, or other niche topics that can only be found in academia. I am an Economics major because it is one of the most practical majors Dartmouth has to offer, even though Economics is still very theoretical. The social life is alright: if you had no social life in high school, you will think the social life is huge, if a lot of your friends went to state schools, you will think you have no life. Something like 60% of the student body is involved in Greek Life, mostly because there’s not anything else to do in Hanover, NH. As a result, Greek Life is for everyone, and there is a diversity of houses and a place for everyone who wants one.
I love it! We are a very rural and tight-knit community. The very cozy and cooperative atmosphere encourages students to really get to know each other, explaining our high alumni loyalty. We are also a school big on sports, around one in four students are an athlete.

When trying to find the right college, try to keep in mind what you want out of a college, and make sure the college you attend is strong in that area (whether it is sports, academics, a sense of community, activities, etc.). When you visit the college, make sure you feel comfortable there, and could see yourself happy for the next few years there. To get the best sense of what the college is like stay overnight with a student; sample the classes, the night life, and the weekend activities.
To make the most of your college experience make sure everything you do is something you love, or at least helps you get to something you love (ex: a class that you hate but you need for a major that you love). Meet new people, but stay close with the friends that you have both from home and the ones you've already made in college. Talk to professors and other studnets if you need help. Be open to trying everything at least once.
My classmates are brilliant people eager to take on new challenges and make a difference in their own way while having a blast!
Dartmouth's location fosters a very close knit community. The surrounding area is beautiful and the students and professors all love being outdoors.
I'm the last heir from a very distinguished family from India. I like posting thoughts on the World Wide Web. My interests include Culinary Arts, Economics, Movies, and Christianity. Dartmouth College was a good fit for me. The school is neo-classical and gives people like me an opportunity to question aspirations. My college major was Cognitive Science which is interdisciplinary (Math, Psychology, Computer Science, Neurobiology).
If I won the lottery, I would donate a sum to Dartmouth College, because I am grateful for the education gained, the friendship memories, and the interest in American politics and life I acquired.
Dartmouth College is a small school with a personal community that thrives on intellectual curiosity and service. Its student party scene is thrilling if managed properly. The campus itself is very scenic (and the food is great).
The stereotype is accurate. The problem is that the campus is isolated so wealthy students find it a place to vent frustrations by drinking alcohol. If punishments became too severe, students may turn to harder narcotics. The only solution is to foster inter-fraternity joint-student activities like multi-house parties/festivals.
The English, Psychology, Economics, Anthropology, and Education departments are very good. The professors are happy to work with students personally rather than distribute authority to graduate students and teaching assistants. The class sizes are small, making this advantageous.
That everyone is super laid back and it is the most laid back ivy school. People are normal and like to have a good time.
The worst thing about Dartmouth College would be the lack of diversity, meaning the very small number of black students who self identify as black that attend this school. There is also not many, if at all, activities that Black students like to do. THe culture of Dartmouth is predominatly white or centered around white culture.
The Fraternity scene is huge. The social scene is dominated by it. Student Activities are almost completely overshadowed by the Fraternities, though there is some modest gain in (somewhat related branches) sports, school newspapers, and music groups.
Dartmouth College is an elite school with a strong undergraduate focus and emphasis on the outdoors.
The strong community is the greatest asset.
likes the outdoors, does well academically, and likes to be in a small community.
We have the friendliest, most involved student body.
Open-minded students are best suited for Dartmouth. People who had a true determination to succeed in life and make the best out of their situation.
How to pick classes.
The location would be the most fustrating aspect of Dartmouth College. In general it is extremely hard to find things you need or get to larger cities because of the lack of transportation provided by the college. Also, during the winter it is near impossible to leave the campus because of the poor quality of the roads surroudning the campus and the extreme amounts of snow and ice we recieve during the winters.

A five room sweet
Homecoming weekend at Dartmouth focuses less on football and more on the tradition of the bonfire on the green.
The fraternity scene is a large part of the Dartmouth social scene and there is a lot of drinking. Pong is not just a game, it is a culture, a way of life. However, there is no one who will force you to drink.
