What Students Are Saying

4.04 Average Rating
Dartmouth has some of the most welcoming professors, friendly student, and most comprehensive yet entertaining classes.
Brian from Cedar Knolls, NJ
I loved the welcoming atmosphere from the moment I stepped on campus, which I noticed during an admissions tour and certainly holds true. Be prepared for the fast pace of a ten-week term since Dartmouth uses the quarter system instead of semesters, but it gives students more flexibility to pursue multiple study abroad, internship and leave-term options over their student careers. Dartmouth students are very involved in extracurriculars, perhaps even over-committed, and Greek life is a big deal here.
