Hanover is frequently judged one of the best places to live in the United States because it balances local and global, friendly and efficient, casual and sophisticated. And the heart of Hanover is on Dartmouth's doorstep. The strong sense of community and rich cultural life of the college fuel, and are fueled by, the town and the region.
Just across the street from the Dartmouth Green, you'll find a tantalizing range of culinary adventures—Thai, Mexican, Chinese, Indian, Italian, American—not to mention pizzerias, bakeries, cafés, bubble tea, and some terrific ice cream. The Hanover Chamber of Commerce lists more than two dozen food and beverage options.
The region—traditional homelands of the Abenaki people—supports major teaching hospitals, a burgeoning high-tech sector with global connections, and an arts scene that perfectly complements Dartmouth's own cultural offerings. The award-winning Hopkins Center for the Arts is at the heart of campus and the town, and world-class productions by Opera North and Northern Stage are just 15 minutes away. For skiing, hiking, and autumn leaf-peeping, the natural environment surrounding Hanover is an ideal playground.
In this post, I talk about my experiences with food at Dartmouth!
In light of the Polar Plunge cancellation, I headed to the Dartmouth Skiway this weekend for my winter activity fix!
Each winter, a celebration of the Upper Valley's beauty is hosted on Dartmouth's campus: Winter Carnival! In honor of its 114th year in existence, I wanted to document its kick-off and the variety of activities students can participate in during it!
What it's like to have a celebration at Dartmouth.
This term, I've been taking a class called "Transforming Energy Systems: Keeping the Lights on While Saving the Planet." It's an awesome class where we've been taking field trips and learning about Dartmouth's energy future. Read more about it here!
Winter in Hanover has exceeded all of my expectations. Here are some of my highlights.
A post answering some of the biggest questions I had about Dartmouth after being admitted last year!
The list could go on, but I unfortunately have a word limit I'm working with here.
If you were to come to Dartmouth and ask the students about their favorite study spots, you would hear many different answers. I don't want to claim that everyone else is wrong; I suggest I am more right. : )
