Information Session: Yes - The information session was good. Boring at first, but got better. Dartmouth has a really special way of scheduling classes that the admissions officer explained well.
Campus Tour: Yes - The campus is small, we basically walked in a big circle. There are little to no hills, so walking in the winter shouldn't be that much of a problem.

Campus Visit Notes for Dartmouth College
I wasn't sold on Dartmouth prior to my visit, but it is definitely near the top of my list now. They really focus on undergraduate education and are more like a small liberal arts college than a university. They have amazing research opportunities and internships. The Greek system is very much a part of Dartmouth, but not in the usual sense. 60% are involved, but freshman are not allowed to rush, which makes it not such a big deal. It's there but it's not the common stereotype of frat boys. Overall Dartmouth is a place where I would like to spend four years.
