I visited the town of Hanover and Dartmouth College in January 2002. And I was amazed by the beautiful campus. Here are some general information from the official homepage of Dartmouth College (www.dartmouth.edu):
Dartmouth, a member of the Ivy League,
is a private, four-year, coeducational
undergraduate college with graduate
schools of business, engineering and
medicine and 16 graduate programs in the
arts and sciences.
Dartmouth is the nation's ninth-oldest
college, founded in 1769 by Rev. Eleazar
Wheelock for the education of "youth of the Indian Tribes ...
English Youth and others ..." Dartmouth became coeducational in
1972. Its colors are Dartmouth Green and white; its nickname is
"The Big Green."
Famous alumni of the college include Daniel Webster (1801),
poet Robert Frost (1896), Kanichi Asakawa, the founder of Asian
Studies in the United States (1899), pioneering biologist E.E. Just
(1907), Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel (1925), Vice President Nelson
Rockefeller (1930), former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop
M.D. (1937), former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich (1968),
and writer Louise Erdrich (1976).
Dartmouth's unique blending of university resources with a
college's focus on undergraduate education offers small classes,
top-flight facilities, and an outstanding faculty. Professors here are
among the leaders in their fields yet remain committed to teaching.
Students have the opportunity to take advantage of faculty
accessibility throughout their Dartmouth careers.
A flexible academic schedule (the Dartmouth Plan) is possible
through the use of a year-round calendar consisting of four
ten-week academic terms (fall, winter, spring, and summer).
Students include terms of on-campus study, off-campus study in
Dartmouth programs or at other institutions, and vacation terms in
their individual Dartmouth Plans. Sixty-three percent of all
Dartmouth students participate in at least one of the
approximately 45 different off-campus options.
At the heart of the college is one of the oldest research libraries
in the United States — Baker Library. Dartmouth is also at the
forefront of educational computing; Dartmouth's high-speed
computer network links all dormitory rooms, administrative and
academic buildings, and mainframe computers on- and
off-campus. All Dartmouth undergraduates own a personal
computer; more than 9,000 PCs are in use campuswide.
Dartmouth undergraduates participate in more than 200
student-run organizations ranging from the Dartmouth Symphony
Orchestra to the college's student staffed and managed radio
stations and the Dartmouth Outing Club. Included are religious
organizations, affinity groups, numerous publications,
pre-professional societies, and political, economic, social, sports,
and recreational organizations. In keeping with Dartmouth's
encouragement of student-initiated projects, new organizations
and programs are constantly evolving to fill special needs and
kindle new enthusiasms. Many Dartmouth student organizations
are housed in the recently renovated Collis Center, the hub of
student activities at the college.
Community service is also a major part of the Dartmouth
experience. More than 20 percent of undergraduates volunteer,
through the Tucker Foundation, for some form of community
service to the surrounding Upper Valley community.
The arts at Dartmouth flourish in the two excellent facilities
designed to make artistic expression a vital part of community life:
the Hood Museum of Art and the Hopkins Center for the Creative
and Performing Arts.
Dartmouth's 34 intercollegiate teams are members of NCAA
Division I and compete largely within the Ivy League and the
ECAC. With a strong emphasis on equal opportunity, Dartmouth's
athletic opportunities include 16 women's programs, 16 men's
programs and two coed teams. In addition, nearly a dozen club
sports are available; 3,000 undergraduates annually take part in
nearly two-dozen intramural sports.
