Admissions Visits & Programs

Summer Visits

Coming to Campus in June, July, or August

Summer is a popular time to see Dartmouth in action, because students are in residence taking classes from June 19 to August 20.

During your visit you can:

  • Learn about the distinctive aspects of a Dartmouth education at one of our information sessions.
  • Take a tour and connect with students on the Green.
  • On select Monday afternoons, have coffee with one of our students.
  • On select Fridays, join us for special programming with our faculty and a complimentary BBQ lunch (weather permitting).

Hanover, NH is an idyllic New England college town. Don't miss us this summer!
