Campus Visit Notes for Dartmouth College
Overall, I was surprised at how similar Dartmouth was to most LACs. Given the fact that Dartmouth is twice the size of the typical LAC, I was expecting Hanover to be twice the size of the typical LAC town. While there are some clear differences between Dartmouth and LACs (DI athletics, medical school right on campus etc.), I would say Dartmouth is closer to Williams than it is to HYP.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
We didn't stay overnight but there is an inn right on campus.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
You can't go wrong with any of the shops/restaurants right off campus.
