Welcome to Fall Term!

Thank you, new students, for an amazing Orientation! We had a wonderful time getting to know you.

And warm thanks to our campus colleagues for their awesome efforts and collaboration as we welcomed the Class of 2018 and Transfer and Exchange Students.

Students: check out the First Six events calendar, designed to help you get off to a good start at Dartmouth!


The First Six is a Dean of the College initiative through the Collis Center for Student Involvement designed to support a smooth and successful transition to Dartmouth College for all incoming students. Visit their website for a continually-updated list of events that welcome first-year students. You will also find links to a whole host of resources that all students might find useful. As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Collis Center at 603.646.3399 or

The Dartmouth Events calendar is another great way to stay informed of the many opportunities available on campus– make sure to select "Students-Undergraduate" in addition to "Public" under "Filter By" so that you can see events that are open only to students.



  • "Orientation" may be over, but you are just beginning to EXPLORE all that Dartmouth has to offer.
  • Stay ENGAGED and active - seek resources, ask questions, get to know faculty, administrators, and fellow students.
  • Let us help you find, define, and refine your EXPERIENCE!


With continued best wishes for a terrific first term,
Eric Ramsey, Senior Assistant Dean of the College and Director of the Collis Center & New Student Orientation

Information about New Student Orientation for the Class of 2019 will be posted in March of 2015. Thanks and we'll talk to you then!
