Ivy league in the woods

Campus is small but picturesque. What sets it apart from other Ivy League colleges is its setting in the woods in a very rural area. Buildings are brick fascade.

A tour of Dartmouth College was the motivation for our recent visit to Hanover in mid-December 2016. My husband, a member of the Class of 1984, gave us a personalised tour of the snow covered campus. We were free to wander around the grounds and were able to gain access to most of the main buildings and facilities, including Baker... More

I enjoyed walking around Dartmouth on a sunny day. It has plenty to offer with shops and good eateries nearby. I also enjoyed reading about Dr. Seuss and his time there.

Great campus setting in Hanover. Grab map inside admissions building if no tours going on (note: on Sunday this door was locked). Easy walk to everything including town across from the green.

This week i had the opportunity to visit this campus. Its small, quaint, but true to the northeast expectation. The campus is integrated within Hanover in a way that seems inviting and petite. This is a must stop if you ever find yourself in these parts.

You can stand on the green in any season and see beauty all around you; the changing eras of architecture, the soaring trees, the lively students. Then you step off one corner and find yourself in a quaint little town that has everything. On the top of the hill you can sit and read with Robert Frost, at the bottom... More

We drove through and wanted to stop to visit. But there is no where to park. Drove around for 30 minutes to find parking and had to pay at a meter. They do not have visitor parking for those who want to see the campus -- or at least I could not find it. It was a pretty campus. The... More

The worship center has a exceptional replica of Noah's Ark. The quad is very inviting and the entire campus offers plenty opportunities to stroll along amongst young adults that believe they will make a difference in the world.
