The Organic Farm plays a big part in my summer!
Given the global pandemic, and the amount of time I've had to just lay around the house, I've had a lot of time to think in the past few months. I've been thinking a lot about what makes me happy, and lately, that's been getting outside.
Sometimes, you just need to be outside and in nature, but maybe you don't have a car or a means to get to some bigger hikes. All of these trails are super easy, fun, and walking distance from campus.
What is the house system like at Dartmouth? Do you live with your house?
The house system is an amazing part of Dartmouth that you're automatically enrolled in when you arrive, and it shapes where you'll live, activities outside campus, and connects you with tons of different people.
Which religious services are offered at Dartmouth? Is there a church or chapel or any other social group to feel connected to your faith?
There are various services available at Dartmouth! One of my favorite places on campus is Rollins Chapel, which is located in the northeastern corner of the Green.
One question that prospective students tend to ask is: "What exactly is there to do in a small New Hampshire town?"
A lot of people are curious about how Dartmouth's location affects social life, but something else that I've come to realize is that because of Dartmouth's location, we have some really cool academic perks.
Late spring is one of the best times to be on campus: the snow is mostly melted and it is peak time for hiking. The accessibly of nature in the Upper Valley region is one of the things that makes Dartmouth unique.
Whether you're looking to work on sustainability efforts, tutor kindergarteners, or support the elderly, there are a ton of opportunities to give back at Dartmouth.
