Family Weekend

In the fall, first-year and graduating senior students and families are invited to campus for Family Weekend featuring tours, faculty lectures, social activities, information sessions, a family cookout, and athletic events.

Dartmouth '25 and '28 parents, supporters, and families:

Mark your calendars for Family Weekend!

Friday, September 27 – Sunday, September 29, 2024

Events begin around noon Friday and end mid-afternoon Sunday.

It's a good idea to make hotel reservations sooner, rather than later, since Fall is a busy time in the Upper Valley. Visit the Family Weekend website for area accommodation links.


Commencement will take place on Sunday, June 9, 2024, on the Dartmouth Green. We look forward to celebrating the graduates alongside family and friends.

The Commencement page provides details. You can also view past ceremonies and keynote addresses, and learn about the traditional symbols of Commencement.
