Welcome Class of 2018!

Dean Charlotte Johnson

The student affairs staff across the Dean of the College division joins me in congratulating you on your offer of admission. Whether you have already made your commitment to Dartmouth or are still considering your options, your invitation to join our community opens the door to an incredible breadth of academic, leadership, and co-curricular opportunities. Dartmouth is a place of discovery that offers you transformative opportunities for growth and learning. We hope you will accept the invitation to take advantage of all that Dartmouth has to offer.

We look forward to seeing those of you who will be visiting for Dimensions in April, and to welcoming the Class of 2018 to campus this fall. If you commit to becoming an '18, this site will become your primary source of information as you plan for your arrival. In early May, you'll learn more here about accessing your Dartmouth email account, applying for housing, preparing to choose your fall courses during Orientation, and becoming a full member of the Dartmouth community. Please bookmark this page, and return regularly to be sure that you have accurate and up-to-date information.

Dean Laskaris and her staff in Admissions have shared how excited they are about the experiences and talents you will bring to our community. We look forward to meeting you soon.

Charlotte Johnson
Dean of the College
