  • 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!
