DOC First-Year Trips / Info for Incoming Students

Info for Incoming Students

“Something happened over the course of Trips that served to allay the fears I had, worries about having to make all new friends, in the weeks leading up to my First-Year Trip. When I stepped off the bus after my trip, I couldn't wait to start my four years at Dartmouth.” —Luisa Sperry’13
