Classes are all informative, though first-level classes are larger than what I'm used to coming out of a small high school. I can't wait to take some more specialized classes. Professors are great and very welcoming. Dartmouth helps you get an internship and get into grad school.

Alumni networking is great. There are many career centers and fairs that help students get to the next level. The classes are a wide range to choose from and so far my professors have been very supportive in helping me pass and be successful in the classroom.

This College is amazing. I am concerned about my future opportunities, mostly because it has been difficult to secure worthwhile internships. Freshman summer internship opportunities were limited both by limited exposure to companies to apply to, since there is no on campus career fair in the engineering school and by the limited course background. Sophomore internship was difficult for the above reasons adn additionally because the trimester off during sophomore year that is required is not when many companies hire college interns - they do it in the summer when all the Dartmouth sophomores have to be at school.

Very opening and friendly environment, and professors are high caliber educators. The campus is beautiful and there are many resources available to students. I wish there had been less of an emphasis on Greek life and better career and advising services.

Great school. My favorite thing about Dartmouth is that we have a very strong school culture which helped me to transition from high school to college because I had all these weird Dartmouth traditions and practices that made me feel like I was a part of Dartmouth. In the future, I’d like to see Dartmouth make more of an effort to find ways to reach students who aren’t into the quirky Dartmouth traditions, because I think while these traditions are helpful for some students, other students may be a little overwhelmed by it and feel gen more isolated from Dartmouth, in conclusion, I would like to see Dartmouth actively engage students who are often marginalized and on the fringes of Dartmouth community.

Dartmouth College is more than what I expected when I began here a few years ago. I don't like how cutthroat the academic culture is and the unrealistic expectations.

Dartmouth is a very prestigious university.I love the community. Students will build each other up academically, it's not a contest between students. Super inclusive campus.

I am very excited to start at Dartmouth this fall and absolutely love being on campus because it feels like home. Everyone is academically driven, and I feel like I can have an intellectual conversation with anyone on campus. There is a sport, club, or outdoor activity for everyone at the college, as most people I know are heavily involved in at least 2 extracurricular clubs. Lastly, the social scene is fun and inclusive. There are different frats and sororities for different all types of preferences, and every house has an "open door" policy. There is little to no social hierarchy that I've noticed (Football players aren't treated differently from comp sci geeks), making it so that anyone can be friends with anyone. One additional note: sophomore summer is the best term of all time! Look it up.

Dartmouth is a great mix of rewarding academics and a close, social community. Being in the small town of Hanover creates a tight knit community, although also fosters a bubble that is often unaware of the "outside world". The atmosphere is more constructive and personal, as the size of the graduating classes are smaller. It has easy access to the outdoors and a generally athletic student body.
