Summer "After Hours" Events

The After Hours program has enhanced and expanded its offerings to include 31 events this summer, many of which highlight partnerships with College resources or local businesses. The goal of the program is to connect employees for social and professional networking, and to resources available to them throughout the College and community.

More family-friendly options have been added, including the children-only event, Mixed Media Extravaganza, offered in partnership with the League of N.H. Craftsmen.


College and Dartmouth-Hitchcock employees can give sailing a try at the Dartmouth Sailing Facility in Enfield, N.H., on Tuesday, June 24. Beginning at 4:30 p.m. participants will sail in Rhodes 19s and then enjoy a barbecue. Cost is $10 per person; register at the After Hours website.

Another exciting event this season is an artist reception and discussion with the "Eti! East Africa Speaks!" group, on campus through the Summer Arts Festival (see related story on page 1). Register online for the reception, which begins at 4:30 p.m. on July 9 and includes refreshments. The event is free and co-sponsored by the First Friday Networking Committee.
