Loads of kids at Dartmouth are from cities. I'd venture to say most grew up in urban or suburban environments. If you are going to Dartmouth (my guess is you're a prospective applicant), you will be surprised by just how abuzz the campus is. It's a small school in a fairly isolated town, yes, but that doesn't mean it's tiny. There are about 6,000 students, add faculty in, and you have a pretty busy place that doesn't get boring.
