5. We Work and Live in a Great Location

We might be biased, but we're sure we live in the most beautiful place in the world. Dartmouth is located in Hanover, NH, a town CNN and Money magazine consistently rate as one of the top ten places in the country to live. And did we mention Dartmouth has its own golf course, ski resort, and nature reserve?

6. We Have an Outstanding Reputation

Dartmouth is recognized as one of the premier academic institutions in the United States. Dartmouth's primary focus is on its undergraduates, and it shows: US News & World Report has ranked Dartmouth #1 for "best undergraduate teaching" multiple years in a row.

7. We Enjoy a Vibrant Cultural Scene

In addition to Dartmouth's vibrant campus-based arts scene, the region offers a variety of music, art, opera, theater, and other kinds of performances every night of the week. Feel the need for an urban fix? Boston and Montreal are 2 1/2 hours away, and NYC is just five hours down Interstate 91—and we have a dedicated bus service to take you there.

8. We Have Great Schools

Our Upper Valley towns have terrific schools and communities committed to education, including excellent public, private, and boarding high schools. For families with younger children, Dartmouth offers comprehensive childcare referrals and has its own daycare center.

9. We Have Excellent Benefits

Dartmouth understands that a healthy employee is a happy employee: faculty and staff have comprehensive benefits and compensation packages, including superior healthcare facilities, excellent health insurance, wellness incentives, and an optional in-house care provider.

10. We Celebrate the Past and Look to the Future

We are proud to be part of the Dartmouth tradition and look forward to celebrating Dartmouth's 250th anniversary in 2019. We are equally proud of Dartmouth's commitment to innovation, state-of-the-art facilities, world-renowned faculty, and exceptional students.
