Members of the Class of 2028 and their families and supporters are invited to a special Family Weekend on campus Friday, September 27 through Sunday, September 29. Questions? contact Kay Reynolds, Associate Director, Family Relations and Engagement.

We can’t wait to welcome you to campus and support your transition.

We work with many campus colleagues on our New Student Orientation (NSO) and will be excited to share it with you in the spring.

Important - Please note:

The dates for your required New Student Orientation are not yet determined. Orientation includes arrival/move-in and First-Year Trips (if you choose to participate) as well as many important programs that will introduce you to the Dartmouth community and your classmates. We will announce Orientation dates in the spring.

Once you receive your offer of admission, watch this webpage for essential information. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at new.student.orientation@dartmouth.edu if you have any questions. We are always happy to hear from you!

Our Mission: New Student Orientation allows students to begin to create deep connections to the institution. With high standards and great compassion, we will prioritize the support of new students as they transition to both academic and co-curricular life at Dartmouth, and we will courageously and clearly communicate (and reinforce) the shared values of our community. Additionally, we are committed to recognizing the many paths taken by students before they arrive, and the multiple ways to experience and engage with our community once they begin their Dartmouth journey. Through its programs and mission, New Student Orientation strives to highlight a campus that is inclusive, welcoming, and caring for all.
