...a must stop when in the area. The campus is lovely and the green is a nice place to relax and take a few moments to appreciate New England. Hanover is a pleasant town for a stroll and the campus abuts the town. Stop and appreciate this fine institution!

We spent a half day enjoying art and culture at Dartmout. They have a wonderful information booth that was open on a Sunday on the main lawn. We loved Jose Orozco's powerful murals in the basement of the College Library. Done between 1932-4, they are clearly explained in free color brochures (or free audio tours.) The Hood Art Museum is...

Very easy to find because the town is so small. We walked around upper campus in about ten minutes just looking for the oldest building. Nothing eye catching. Not sure it has the panache of other Ivy League schools but seems perfect for someone who is looking for a small town atmosphere

I came, i saw and I left. Of course, I went to the Tuck School of Business and took pictures and touch the building. Other than that, there are no cool/ideal pictures to take. It is an open campus. Parking is very easy on Sunday. Very sleepy town. About 10 minutes off the expressway. I really can't add more than... More

The Inn is the only place to stay as you advance in age! The College is deeply addicted to the edifice complex. It sucks up a ton of $ but affords the visitor and alumnus a lot to see. The Inn has the noisiest restaurant but good food. The Canoe Club is well muted for noise but mediocre good food.... More

Beautiful, typical New England campus. Orozco (sp.?) mural in basement of the library is worth a look.

The College is very pretty and really seems to be the heart of town. As I imagined a New England Ivy League campus should look. Not sure if I would think of it as a tourist destination, but if you have a reason to go there, a beautiful place to walk around - though as some of the students explained... More

Lots of publicity, but unimpressive. Quaint town with nothing to do there. The only excitement comes from their hockey team!

I was excited to be able to visit the campus, it being an Ivy League school. Was somewhat disappointed to see that the three buildings (apparently dorm buildings) I walked into were dark, dingy, and dirty. The office that we visited was disorganized and dark, and the lady that worked there was curt and somewhat rude. I understand that the... More
