I went to use the library at 9.30 am on a Saturday but it was closed! I'd expect better of an Ivy League school but like many aspects of DC the school has gone to the dogs. Rather than use the library students, it would appear, prefer to loiter in Starbucks with their Macs and conduct low brow conversations. It... More

The town has a great small town feel with just the right amount of amenities. Room to room in town (culture at the HOP, movies, bookstores, shopping, as well as campus culture and great libraries.

On our Roadtrip we saw all the Ivy League Colleges in New England. From our point of view, Darthmouth was one of the most beautiful considering landscape and architecture. The ensemble of houses looked very neat and had a very nice atmosphere and whoever is interested in Ivy league campuses shouldn't miss this one.

Love the green, the atmosphere, the buildings. Love to revisit where my Father went to college, see his dorm, see what the medical school looks like now.... love the small stores and college feel. It is always a treat to get back to Dartmouth.

The campus is beautiful, historic, and evokes the spirit of very high-level learning and accomplishment. Any student you see has the potential to go out and change the world. For now, they study in this amazingly beautiful setting. River hiking trail within easy walking distance, too.

We passed the morning with the Docent from the Hood Museum seeing and hearing the story of the Orozco Murals in the Baker Library, Dartmouth University. Such a treasure, a MUST SEE for those who love art and history. Be sure to schedule the tour with a docent because they are a wealth of knowledge.

Dartmouth is magnificent! It offers the resources of a major university in a small college setting, and the setting is superb. Where else could one find a college that actually sits on the Appalachian Trail? Walk the campus end to end. Wander through classic old buildings and to the surrounding river, pond, and (yes, really) gorgeous historic cemetery. View superb... More

...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
