Student Reviews Ratings data provided by Unigo
Dartmouth is amazing. First it is a fairytale land of love, and then after Homecoming the freshmen are loathed. Then it is up to every schmuck to make it. If you are coming you'll love it for its intensity. The resources stay plentiful and it is up to you to find and access them. Everything is competition so get ready to get better at whatever it is that you want most. You are in for a surprise if you think you are the best singer... for instance. The people are friendly as ever. Come, I'll show you the ropes.
