Climate and Energy Summer Series

Join us every Tuesday in July for a specialized virtual visit for prospective students interested in thinking about climate change as a substantive part of their college experience. These events are hosted by the Dartmouth College Office of Admissions in partnership with Dartmouth's Irving Institute for Energy and Society.

Each session features different Dartmouth faculty members and current students who will discuss their ongoing work around climate and energy. Register for one or more of the four sessions below (July 7, July 14, July 21, July 28).

This panel discussion will feature four recent Dartmouth graduates whose on-campus energy engagement spanned engineering, physical, and social science research, founding Dartmouth's first student energy clubdeveloping and implementing the College's ambitious sustainability goals, leading students on an Energy Immersion spring break trip to Appalachia, and more! You'll meet Zach Berzolla '19, Jordan Swett '19, Elena Bird '18, and Laura Hutchinson '19 and learn about their time at Dartmouth, where they are today, and what the future holds.
