We hope you and your students are enjoying the break. As we look ahead to the new year, Dartmouth is preparing to launch a series of events throughout 2019 to celebrate the College’s 250th anniversary. Activities on campus and around the world will offer students, faculty, staff, families and alumni a wide range of opportunities to come together.
Dartmouth’s mission is to prepare the most promising students for a lifetime of learning and responsible leadership. As I noted last month, we want our students to cultivate the ability to have a positive influence on a daily basis, in any relationship, any setting and any community of which they are a part.
Dear Parents and Families, as we head into the fourth week of the term, I would like to take a moment to share with you a snippet of an open hours conversation I had with a first-year student earlier this week.
