The Dartmouth experience doesn't end at graduation. The Dartmouth family crosses continents and generations. Current students traveling the world as part of their D-plan are often welcomed wherever they go by alumni living everywhere from London to Beijing. Students often come back to Hanover with stories of new opportunities that opened up with the help of our loyal alumni. Just ask your alumni interviewer about his or her experience not just in Hanover, but as part of the Dartmouth family.
Dartmouth College graduates rank #1 when it comes to earning power 10 years out of school, according to the 2008 Education and Salary Report compiled by PayScale.com. The median salary for the College's alumni is $134,000, 10-20 years out of college. "Big Green" alumni with less than five years of work experience averaged a yearly compensation of $58,000.
But the Dartmouth education does far more than get students good jobs. Many Dartmouth graduates do well by doing good. A significant number of recent alumni begin their careers at non-profits. The top four employers for Dartmouth's Class of 2008 are a mix of for-profit and not-for-profit, including McKinsey, Goldman Sachs, Teach for America and the Peace Corps.
Dartmouth College is famous cultivating loyal alumni. Graduates give back to the College in record numbers. In the Class of 2010, 99.9% of the seniors donated to the College before graduation. Over 23,000 alumni also give back to undergraduates by serving as career advisors and over 7,000 conduct admissions interviews.
Dartmouth alumni themselves are also famous. They include men and women with a range of accomplishments from Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel, Class of 1925) to Jeff Immelt '78, CEO of GE. Even young alumni, like Milton '04 and Fred '05 Ochieng, are changing the world through inspiring work.
