<p>I'm visiting Dartmouth next weekend for a tour and interview. What should I do, who should I see, where should I hit?</p>

<p>-Visit the Hood Museum and explore the galleries
-Eat at Collis Cafe... omlette, stir-fry and smoothie bars. Great if you're vegetarian.
-Walk down Main St. and check out the shops around Hanover. Get a feel for the town.
-Go fall foliage hunting
-ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS. To every student you see. The tourguides of course are going to give you lots of propaganda about Dartmouth... so you'll get a more full view of the school if you ask other students</p>

<p>The only way you are going to get to see "real life" here is with a current student. If you email me at <a href=""></a> maybe I can give you more details.</p>

<p>Definitely check out the Tower was my very first impression when I came to visit last April and I think that it is really captivating.</p>

<p>thanks so much! i'm really looking forward to going</p>

<p>If you're interested in seeing a dorm room I'd be happy to show you mine.</p>

<p>sounds great. email is <a href=""></a></p>

<p>lol alex it's east wheelock... better to see some <em>real</em> dorms like choates and mine in the river, oh ho ho</p>

<p>Shh...we're supposed to con people into coming here, remember?</p>

<p>real smooth, you guys :)</p>

<p>Xanotos, how do you like living in East wheelock?</p>

<p>Yeah, don't visit wheelock. Its beautiful but no fun. Visit Mass Row, the Gold Coast, Richardson, or any of the "old school" dorms to get a good feel of the place. Chances are you'll spend a majority of your time there as an upperclassman if you live on campus</p>

<p>East Wheelock has a lot of fun people in there... but by and large it's a quiet dorm. The pros are the nice large rooms that are clean and private bathrooms... but the negatives are the stigma and also the paper-thin walls and doors you can hear through.</p>

<p>The old school dorms have a lot of charm... with the old fireplaces and window frames. One of my friends was telling me that an alumn came to his dorm that he had stayed in more than 40 years ago! I especially love the 2- and 3-room doubles/triples in the older dorms and I spend lots of time hanging out with my friends who live in them. =)</p>

<p>Hey, just messing with you...</p>

<p>My daughter happens to live in East Wheelock and loves living there and is having fun. Sometimes she feels that it is a long walk to class and she likes the quiet. She has many friends in Choates and River dorms if she needs to get away from it all, but it seems that one of her river friends is trying to squat in her dorm she is there so much.</p>

<p>So far I like living in East Wheelock. The huge rooms and the bathrooms rock. Yes, it is quiet (for the most part). But that's the beauty of it. I try to stay in my dorm only to work and sleep. The rest of the time, I'm out and about anyway so what goes on in East Wheelock isn't a big deal. There are people on my floor who like to party so oftentimes we'll go to frats together and then either hang out together or split up and find friends that are also there. So all in all I think it's a good deal. The one real drawback is its distance from Webster Avenue and most of the other dorms. It's as far from the River as you can get, and it's also a good long walk from the Choates, Gile, and places like that. This means that people from other dorms don't visit me in my room as often as I would wish (<em>cough</em> drownindreams). Anyway, that's my take on it.</p>

<p>However, as drownindreams pointed out, I've noticed that maybe with the exception of the River and the Choates most of the other dorms here are really nice. I've been in dorms in Mid Fayer and Gile that are just as big as mine and have their own bathrooms as well. I honestly think you will be happy wherever you stay here, because along with the nice rooms there is a sense of camaraderie and community and plenty of chances to bond with your floormates as well as other Dartmouth students.</p>
