  • For more than 36 years, the annual Arts at Dartmouth Award Ceremony has been celebrating the achievements of student artists.

President Jim Kim:

I have been consistently impressed by the exceptional quality and sophistication of the scholarship produced by our undergraduate students. The opportunity to engage deeply with a topic of interest and to conduct original research while further cementing close relationships with faculty is one of the hallmarks of the Dartmouth education. 

Dean of the Faculty of Arts & Sciences Michael Mastanduno

One of the things Dartmouth does best is to provide students with opportunities to collaborate with faculty to create new knowledge both in and out of the classroom. Years after graduating, this is what students remember about their time at the College.

You can see some examples of the exciting undergraduate work that has been featured on the President’s Office website as well.

Hope to see you there!

This Friday, Dartmouth is proud to welcome alumni in the gaming industry back to Hanover!

Dartmouth has a special relationship to game design. Familiar with the games Twister or Cranium? Some of the most respected games and toys of the 20th and 21st century have been created by Dartmouth graduates. What’s more, there are alumni in leadership roles among scores of prominent toy and digital game companies (Hasbro, Sony, Popcap, Zynga), as well as the entrepreneurial alums who are venturing out to start their own new brands.

Dartmouth at Play celebrates these graduates, bringing folks active in the gaming industry back to campus in order to discuss the future of play.

We’ll discuss the practicalities of working in these fast-moving fields and get a chance to theorize about what is coming. Dartmouth at Play will instigate a lively conversation about games and play, sharing insights with students, faculty, and staff.

See you Friday afternoon to kick off a playful Green Key Weekend!
