Dartmouth College is among the most beautiful college campuses in the U.S. (or world for that matter). If you have the time, be sure to take a tour of Baker Library (the tower is open on certain days) for a spectacular view of the upper Connecticut River valley. There are a number of lodging options in the area, but the... More

Lovely place to visit and attend college. Harsh winters, cozy fireside chats. Great people in a quintessential New England small town setting.

I don't attend Dartmouth, but as a resident of Hanover, it's a central presence. Quintessential New England -- ancient white buildings surround a well-kept green. Bustling students weaving through town traffic. Baker Library stands solidly on one end of the green, the other is occupied by Hopkins Center for the Arts. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!

We walking paths and plenty of grass, the main square next to town is a wonderful place for kids to play, plenty of room and safe from traffic. Just across from the inn, there are a few benches for us adults to sit and relax as we watch them run around.

Dartmouth's campus was beautiful! It was very busy with lots of students and traffic was high, but it was extremely easy to walk around on foot. The surrounding town, Hanover, was very small, but walkable, and it was very nice. There weren't too many stores nearby, only a few blocks worth, but the necessities were there. There were also several... More

We went to the library to see one the first print editions of the Book of Mormon. The staff were very nice. We were able to see, handle and photograph the book as much as we wanted to.

In very remote area. Relies on its reputation for enrollments. Getting a "party school" reputation due to fraternities.

We came here for a campus visit with our daughter who is looking a schools for next year. She fell in love with the school. We were here in the autumn and all of the leaves were changing. The grounds are rich in history. Hanover is a nice little town with plenty of good restaurants. The campus also has access... More
