Dartmouth Admissions

Congratulations to those you admitted to the Dartmouth Class of 2018! 

We in the Computer Science department look forward to meeting you whenever you arrive, whether you come by during Dimensions or we have to wait until the fall of 2014 to meet you. Of course, you’ll want to take some Computer Science while you’re here. Why? One reason is that it’s hard to think of a discipline that does not use computation. Put succinctly: If you can’t compute, you can’t compete!  Another reason is that our courses, while challenging, are also fun and will expand your modes of thought. Yet another reason is that students love our courses; they’re always highly rated. If you choose to major in Computer Science, you’ll have myriad opportunities before and after graduation. We get many of our majors involved in our research, and over the years several Dartmouth Computer Science undergraduates have coauthored papers in top conferences and journals. You’ve probably heard about some of the job offers that Computer Science majors get these days, and the stories are true! So please stop by Sudikoff Laboratory, the home of the Dartmouth Computer Science department, and learn more about what we have to offer you.
