One of the nine Colonial Colleges founded before the American Revolution, Dartmouth College is a private, Ivy League school with a reputation for its focus on undergraduate education. With a flexible quarter-system calendar (Nicknamed the D-Plan) and a requirement that only faculty teach undergraduate courses, the college ensures that students have unrivaled access to the leading minds in their field of choice. The school readily provides financial aid to those in need, as almost half of the students receive some form of need-based assistance to cover the cost of their education. Student life centers around the 350+ student organizations, a well-established Greek system and athletics, which most students participate in either at the intercollegiate or intramural level. Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, is just one of many notable alumni; the Dartmouth network a valuable asset beyond graduation.
