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 an unexpected perspective to share. As a group, each incoming class is energetic, curious, values-driven, and diverse in a broadly-defined way.
Dartmouth's 1,193 newest students have come to Hanover from all corners of the globe. The members of the undergraduate Class of 2023 join us from all 50 American states, D.C., Guam, and Puerto Rico as well as 25 tribal nations and indigenous communities. Students join us from 51 countries and every inhabited continent. At their welcome, the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Elizabeth Smith suggested to the newest members of our community, "I would also ask that you approach this experience with humility. No single individual, here or elsewhere, is more important than another. Both inside and outside of the classroom, listen to each other, learn from each other, take care of each other."
