Dartmouth College is a private, coeducational university, comprising a liberal arts college, Dartmouth Medical School, Thayer School of Engineering, and Tuck School of Business, as well as 19 graduate programs in the arts and sciences. It is located in Hanover, New Hampshire. Incorporated as “Trustees of Dartmouth College,” it is a member of the Ivy League and one of the nine Colonial Colleges founded before the American Revolution. With a total enrollment of 5,987, Dartmouth is the smallest school in the Ivy League.
Dartmouth College was established in 1769 by Congregational minister Eleazar Wheelock. After a long period of financial and political struggles, Dartmouth emerged from relative obscurity in the early twentieth century. Dartmouth alumni, from Daniel Webster to the many donors in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, have been famously involved in their college.
Dartmouth is located on a rural 269-acre (1.1 km²) campus in the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire. Given the College’s isolated location, participation in athletics and the school’s Greek system is high. Dartmouth’s 34 varsity sports teams compete in the Ivy League conference of the NCAA Division I. Students are well-known for preserving a variety of strong campus traditions.
