Admissions Visits & Programs

Sustainable Dartmouth

Green. At Dartmouth, it’s more than just our school color and mascot. From what we study to how we live, sustainability impacts every aspect of life at Dartmouth.

This summer we are thrilled to offer a specialized immersive campus visit day for prospective students interested in sustainability as a course of study or a way of life.

Register for the Friday, August 11 Sustainable Dartmouth Open House

During this unique visit you will:

  • Hear from Dartmouth’s scholars who teach: faculty who are in the field, in the news, and are hands-on in our classrooms.
  • Get your hands dirty at the Organic Farm, a hub for experiential learning at Dartmouth. From the educational working garden, to the faculty and student research that is hosted at the farm, current students and staff will showcase this stunning landscape as you visit multiple stations that highlight current analysis and activities on the farm.
  • Enjoy lunch in our Dining Hall and talk with faculty, staff, and students about the way sustainability can weave its way into a wide variety of majors and minors at Dartmouth.
  • Round out your day back on campus with a tour and optional Q&A with our admissions and financial aid staff.

As a majority of this day’s events will take place at Dartmouth’s Organic Farm, we encourage you to wear clothing and shoes that would be appropriate on a working farm. Events will include some walking and time outdoors—sunscreen and bug spray are approved for use on the farm grounds. Travel will be provided, and while limited, restrooms, shade, and seating will be available.

In keeping with Dartmouth’s small, close-knit community, attendance at this special program will be kept low to ensure each participant has a hands-on experience. Registration will be required.
