The Epicenter of Your Dartmouth Journey

For at least one summer term, you'll be in Hanover studying and taking advantage of the natural vibrant beauty of our region. It's a time when classrooms and labs extend outdoors and the campus becomes a stage for the arts.

This is summer on campus.

Academics, research planning, career exploration, leadership, service, cultural and outdoor adventures—these are the cornerstones of the Summer term.

  • Schedule a full slate of courses (typically three classes) and plan your major.
  • Develop a strong working relationship with your subject-area librarian—a key collaborator for your upcoming research projects.
  • Take charge of campus clubs and service organizations at a time when there are fewer students on campus, but just as many activities in full swing.
  • Explore Hanover and the surrounding region on your own or through dozens of Dartmouth outdoor programs.

The Undergraduate Deans Office is a treasure trove of resources to help you make the most of your summer term.
