Dartmouth College Class of 2015 Army ROTC Cadets and U.S. Marine Officer Candidates listen to a speech by Dartmouth College Trustee Nate Fick at the 2015 Commissioning Ceremony.

Since the 1980s, Dartmouth Cadets have continued to train on the Dartmouth College Campus in Hanover, New Hampshire under a participant agreement with Norwich University, a Senior Military College located in Northfield, Vermont. Dartmouth Army ROTC prepares cadets for success in any career - military, government, corporate, or non-profit. In short, we are the Best Leadership Course in America.

Dartmouth Presidents and senior leadership have shared a common bond of personal and institutional support for Dartmouth students who are preparing for military service, or coming to Dartmouth as veterans of our nation's service branches. In 2009, Dartmouth Honorary Degree Recipient General John Abizaid served as the ROTC Commissioning Ceremony Speaker on Commencement weekend.

If you are visiting Dartmouth over the Summer and would like to meet with the ROTC department, please contact Mr. Ian Short, Program Coordinator, at 603.646.3222 or to arrange a time.

If you intend to apply for an Army ROTC national scholarship and will be including Dartmouth on your list of schools to which you may apply the scholarship, please contact us to discuss your plans.
