What They Play

A look at participation in Dartmouth's athletic offerings shows that students continue to crave organized athletic activities at a very high level. Both varsity and club participation topped 1,000 students last year with a total of 66 offerings (34 varsity-well above the average number of varsity sports sponsored by other Division I schools-and 32 clubs). On the varsity side, 2006-07 produced an NCAA Championship in skiing, Ivy titles in men's hockey, women's hockey, and men's rowing, as well as six top-three finishes in the Ivy League.
