Admissions Visits & Programs

Arts & Creativity Open House

Curiosity. It’s at the heart of the arts and humanities. At Dartmouth we have cultivated an environment that values and nurtures creativity, passion, and innovation across the disciplines.

This summer, join us to learn more about this exciting place as we celebrate the liberal arts with a specialized immersive campus visit day for prospective students interested in the arts, humanities, and creativity as a course of study or a way of life. If creativity, the humanities, and a love of the arts—in all its forms—is one of your passions, and you’d like to explore how this passion can be sustained in a modern liberal arts education, we hope to see you at this event.
