As you must have noticed, a flock of new graduate students has joined the Dartmouth community. The Grad Forum decided that we’d take some time to help us all get to know each other a bit!
In total there are 296 new students, increased from 250 in the previous year. The biggest enrollment, with 55 students, is for the Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies program (MALS). The Healthcare Delivery Science comes a close second with 46 new students, followed by the Molecular and Cellular Biology Program with 37. Joining us are 98 international students, an increase from 72 last year. All of this points to a strengthening of the Graduate School, helped significantly by our excellent faculty, and of course the hard work of the Graduate Student Council who make being in Hanover a great experience.
Over the past couple of weeks the grad studies office has been interviewing some of these students to find out more about the many interesting recruits to Dartmouth. Have a look at our flickr account to learn about unicyclists and revolutionaries:
