Admissions Visits & Programs

3rd Dimension of Dartmouth

If our scheduled visits don't fit with your time table, feel free to plan your own day at Dartmouth.

Dimensions of Dartmouth Option Three:
Any weekday in April

Prior to your arrival, reach out to our faculty members to arrange individual meetings (as available). Then, come to campus, attend classes in your field of interest, and spend some time in the spaces that interest you most. Explore Dartmouth at your own pace.

We can arrange an optional overnight stay with one of our student hosts most Mondays through Thursdays—so you get the full Dartmouth experience.
