"I straddle the line between black, white, urban, rural, gay, straight, poverty, and privileged."

"Numbers are my palette."

"Poor, Jewish, and Latina. I am practically a unicorn."

"I am on the front line, knowing that if I win my country's despair will be substituted with hope and opportunities."

 

Who is Dartmouth?

Each year, we are inspired by the quality and diversity of the incoming Dartmouth class. We think you will be, too. We look for students who let their lives speak. Each has an intriguing story or unexpected perspective to share. As a group, each incoming class is energetic, curious, values-driven, and diverse in a broadly-defined way.

Dartmouth’s 1,169 newest students have come to Hanover from all corners of the globe. The members of the undergraduate Class of 2022 make up the most geographically diverse class to matriculate at the College, hailing from 57 countries—almost one-third of the world’s nations. “This is a global moment for Dartmouth. Our worldwide footprint continues to expand as prospective students, and certainly our first-year students, understand that we are an institution with a global perspective,” says Lee Coffin, vice provost for enrollment and dean of admissions and financial aid.
