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

This charming campus makes you want to explore every nook and cranny...it is the real deal! I came here often as a child and it has grown more dynamic, more beautiful with time.

Dartmouth College is a lovely campus in a scenic setting. Lots of hills, trees and rivers surround the campus which is set right into the town of Hanover. While my husband and I were visiting a friend in Dartmouth College, I imagine that anyone could have a nice weekend trip passing through here, maybe stopping for a meal and a... More

The college is great! But that is for students. The campus and things to see on the campus are amazing. The library tower is only open for special occasions but we were lucky enough to go up to the walk around. The view is spectacular! You can see for miles. There is an old clock in the tower that still... More

We didn't have a chance to do a thorough visit but it is a beautiful campus. You can see the history in the buildings around the main square. Wish we had more time to visit the library and art gallery.

Dartmouth is right in the heart of Hanover and is a lovely campus to stroll. Stop at the information booth, where the attendants will help you in your walking tour. There are free art museums and libraries to explore. Just walking on the square is lovely. I wish we had had more time to explore and had more time to... More

Hanover is beautiful in the summer - so much to do. Wonderful time of the year to visit Dartmouth and vacation in NH.

Dartmouth College looks and feels as a college should in New England. You can walk everywhere and the town merges onto the campus. The town is alive and active, a real retail section. You should make sure to visit the bookstore.

Dartmouth is an incredible campus because the local area is so nice. The Campus is right in the center of Hanover, which is such a nice town. There is a lot going on at Dartmouth, even in the summer! I would recommend going to the info session. Also, the walking tour is a great way to see the campus and... More
