What is your overall opinion of this school?

Dartmouth isn't right for everyone, but when it's right, it's incredible. Academically, Dartmouth caters to those who manage their time, work hard, and have a genuine interest in learning. Professors guide you and support you, but they certainly do not make it easy for you. Dartmouth is right for those who are excited to work, and wrong for those who just want to sleep in and watch TV. However, working hard doesn't preclude you from having a social life. Dartmouth has a huge going out culture that largely circles around Greek life. Just as depicted in Animal House, every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, people flock to Webster ave- i.e. frat row. Social life at Dartmouth includes a heavy and perhaps unhealthy binge-drinking culture and a work hard play hard attitude. Dartmouth is right for those excited to spend time with their friends and let loose a little, and wrong for those who would rather work through the night, every night. But even for those uncomfortable with this drinking culture, Dartmouth provides other social spaces. Hanover, New Hampshire offers the most amazing opportunities to explore nature, with incredible hikes, rivers, and ski mountains. The Dartmouth Outing Club provides numerous opportunities to get into nature, ranging from beginner to expert levels. Dartmouth is right for those who love the outdoors, and wrong for those who love city life. Dartmouth isn't right for everyone, but when it's right, it is truly the most incredible place to spend four years of your life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Dartmouth college is a small town ivy league school located in Hanover, New Hampshire. Hanover is small and is really more of a college town with its campus being as big as the town. The campus its self is small and has a homey feel most colleges don't have. And the look of the campus is really nostalgic. Through the spring and fall the campus shows its true beauty through its wide array of foliage. Thinking about there teaching and staff they are superb they cater to the students needs and they really want the students to learn and have the best chance to become proficient in the field of study. The Greek life on campus is huge 70 percent of the student body is enrolled into a fraternity or sorority. Because of the large number of students that are apart of Greek life on campus there tend to be parties quite often. On the other hand the students are not allowed to be accepted into a fraternity or sorority in the beginning of there freshman year. There sports are big on campus. Whether it be at the collegiate level, intramural, or just playing games on the green. The Dartmouth community loves there activities. The biggest thing about the campus is the amount of student involvement. The student body participates in everything. From there museum to hosting a ted X it is run by college students. Dartmouth is a college of exceptional students in the class and out of the class and Dartmouth is there to help them blossom.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Dartmouth College is a place filled with special people. With its numerous traditions, the college creates a strong sense of community and belonging. Although located in a rural area, events, lectures, talks, and shows are a regular part of students' lifestyles. Professors engage students both in and outside of class, and not only provide help but build personal relationships. While the long dark days of the winter often leave students fatigued, the community spirit and continuous social life burn them from the inside.

Dartmouth's cool, the frat life is so cult-y tho. I love the students that i meet here, everyone is always so interested in something which is fun to always hear about! The first generation students scene is nice to have, especially when a lot of your classes may have a certain makeup!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Dartmouth College has been an incredible experience this past term. Being a Latin American student and first-generation American, I was quite afraid that I would not find a community I could call my own on campus. Surprisingly, I discovered how much I had underestimated the vibrant, diverse, and exciting individuals in and out of the classroom. I can always expect to find someone to share a word with or exchange pleasant conversations. Besides the community, the professors here are true authorities in their field of study, and are always available to discuss their latest research topics or clarify any difficulties encountered in the coursework!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I had a fantastic time at Dartmouth College. My experience was extremely satisfactory in the classroom and outside of the classroom. In the classroom, I thought that students were extremely intelligent and professors were for the most part engaging. Although students were quite intelligent there was a culture of people not showing it off. This had its pros that it was a collaborative environment instead of a cut-throat environment. But the con was that students sometimes tried a bit too hard to act like they did not care about academics.

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an amazing institution full of support if you need it, especially through their OPAL office and FYSEP. The deans are amazing and most professors are excellent teachers. Although there is much to be done about racism and sexism in the curriculum, the support is here to help one through it and the college is doing its best to reinforce its values against hate and pro-open mindedness.
