I am continually impressed by the quality of the teaching at Dartmouth. Since it is a college, faculty members really do focus on undergraduates as opposed to solely pursuing their research. However, that is not to say that there are no research opportunities available. As a freshman I participated in the Women in Science Project internship program, as a sophomore Howard Hughes Medical Institute fellow I will continue doing research, and as a junior one can continue as a Presidential Scholar. Since we are on the quarter system, classes are fast paced, but it is nice that you only have...

    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.

    Dartmouth College has a beautiful campus, inviting community, and spirited way of life. Sure it gets cold, but the traditions of the school are intertwined with the weather to make for a unique winter experience. This place is the best!

    Dartmouth is simply amazing. Despite its location in a tiny NH town, the campus has a lot to offer and is very welcoming. If you love the great outdoors, Dartmouth is the place for you.

    There is no other place like Dartmouth; often people speak of it as a bubble but you'll have great experiences just the same. You'll meet people from all walks of life that not only broaden your worldview but collectively make the campus a more interesting place. Its academic excellence is unparalleled and outdoor activities fantastic, and though it may have areas for improvement, Dartmouth is a wonderful school and I am excited to be able to spend four years in this community.

    It's the smallest Ivy. For undergrads that means a huge sense of community. It's a very outdoorsy, athletic school.

    I'm so happy to be at Dartmouth. It wasn't my first choice school, but I can't imagine a better place for me now that I'm there. Dartmouth people are some of the least pretentious and yet most talented people in the country, and they constantly amaze me and push me to amaze myself.

    Though I am not a student, is is apparent that Dartmouth has a vibrant campus, filled with motivated and friendly students. The campus itself is beautiful and contains modern facilities and many housing options. As a bonus, the dining hall serves great meals and has amazing cookies!

    Biggest problem with the school is that it doesn't cater to non mainstream students (wannabe investment bankers, fratstars, big drinkers). It can be extremely difficult to find individuals against the grain, especially since this school is in the middle of nowhere. Education quality is generally very high, and help is readily available.
