The Campus

Upon arriving at Dartmouth College in 1953, President Dwight D. Eisenhower remarked, “This is what a college campus should look like.” Dartmouth’s picturesque campus sits on the banks of the Connecticut River, nestled in the Upper Valley region of New England. With 90 percent of undergraduates living on campus, an engaged and accessible faculty, and all buildings within easy walking distance, Dartmouth offers the ideal college setting.
