New Student Orientation begins on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at 9:00 A.M. with Orientation Check-In, Key Pick-Up, and House Community Welcome at Massachusetts Row (Mass Row), and ends on Sunday, September 15, 2019 at 8:00 P.M. Classes begin on Monday, September 16, 2019. We can’t wait to get started – and we know you feel the same way!

The programs and events throughout Orientation have been intentionally designed to prepare you to elect your first term courses and become a full member of the Dartmouth community.

You will receive a printed schedule of the core academic and community events on Tuesday morning at the Orientation Check-In, Key Pick-Up, and House Community Welcome, along with other materials in support of course election.

The online New Student Orientation schedule is available via the quick link on the left. Pay attention to "Required Core Events."

This website will remain your best source for up-to-date information about Orientation and your introduction to the Dartmouth community. Stay connected, check the schedule frequently, and watch for updates!

Don't forget to read our blog at Of Note (check out recent postings!).

And while you’re here – learn about the Orientation Team (O-Team). These upper-level students will be an important part of your experience (and already have been, during Pre-Orientation programs).

Please feel free to contact the New Student Orientation office, via phone or email, if you have questions about Orientation: 603.646.1698, or New.Student.Orientation@dartmouth.edu.

Again – welcome. We are so glad you are here and look forward to seeing you often during Orientation.

With best wishes for a terrific transition to Dartmouth - and on behalf of the Orientation Planning Team,

Eric Ramsey, Associate Dean for Student Life
Kathleen Cunneen, Program Director, New Student Orientation
