Exploring Dartmouth and the Connecticut River
Here is a glimpse into the gorgeous outdoors that sits on and hugs Dartmouth's campus. On this fine May afternoon, my friends and I paddled down the Connecticut River for the first time now that the Ledyard Canoe Club opened services. We had a blast!
When not in the classroom, Dartmouth students tend to be rather adventurous and outdoorsy — whether that means filling their time playing tennis, kayaking in between Vermont and New Hampshire, participating in a Dartmouth Outing Club (DOC) student-led trip, or performing in front of a live outdoor audience at Collis patio. Day trips to the White Mountains, Quechee, and other small neighboring towns are also pretty popular! I thought I'd use this blog post to share some photos of what it's like to be a student on campus during 21S (aka the spring quarter of 2021… just some more Dartmouth lingo!)
As the pandemic begins to recede, once campus is fully vaccinated, the possibilities for road trips to Boston or Maine will open up for weekend trip ideas. But for now, here are just a few ways to stay entertained and engaged in campus life right here at Dartmouth.
