Wonderful campus and town

This is a wonderful town and campus to visit. Perfect time to go is during the Fall. Would bring a Frisbee to toss on the quad!

The college has grown enormously in the past fifty years. It is an attractive campus, with many fine architectural buildings. Strictly speaking, it really should be called a university with the following professional schools: Geisel Medical School (dating back to 1797), Thayer School of Engineering, and the Tuck School of Business Administration. In addition, there are master's and Ph.D. programs... More

Place is magical! You can explore campus and feel the academic energy. People are friendly and foot is exceptional. Walk thru historic buildings and go back to where it started! Amazing!

What a pleasant surprise on July 4. Hanover fire trucks offered lifts on their ladders (see photo). 4 at a time. The ladder goes up to 90 feet (no longer because it is difficult to drive anything longer through winding roads and hills). We visited the COOP (nothing purchased, branded t-shirts with logos cost too much). Walked along the main... More

Dartmouth College Campus is beautiful, and worth a couple of hours looking around. We especially enjoyed the library where they served tea. I could have happily spent several days in there. The orchid conservatory was also well worth a visit.

We toured the school and met with athletic coaches. It is really a wonderful place. It was really good that we had the chance to eat in the school dining facility.

Dartmouth College is one of the US's top universities. If you were to define the perfect college campus, this would be it except for the lack of a city nearby or good transportation to/from Hanover. But putting these negatives aside, Dartmouth is historically very important as is one of only 9 created before the US revolution. It has the 1st... More

There is always something interesting going on a Dartmouth. Be it a concert, play, film, dance production, sporting event, cultural celebration or lecture, you can always find something to do. There are many good restaurants close by, too. The only challenge is finding a parking place.
