4 College Junior

Weather: Bad in the winter but the glorious spring/summer can't be beat and going to the farmers market on the green in fall feels perfectly "college"

1 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Very cold winters--often well below 0. Just get a solid NorthFace or equivalent and boots and you'll be fine.

1 College Freshman

Weather: Winter sucks. Imagine coming from sunny California and BAM! Put into blankets of snow and ice with sub zero degree temperatures. Sometimes in the winter I don't even go to class because I get way too cold.

4 College Senior

Weather: typical new england weather. expect very cold winters with lots of snow, beautiful vibrant fall seasons, and perfect springs

4 College Junior

Weather: I find all of the seasons at Dartmouth to be a beautiful sight. Fall has that crisp chill and the leaves are falling slowly. Winter is beautiful because everything is like a white blanket and there is that dry cold feeling. Spring is really wet, but a wonderful experience because when everything starts to bloom, everything smells like flowers. Flower petals fall and everything is green and coming to life. I have yet to experience summer, but I heard it is HOT!

If you plan to come to Dartmouth, you might as well start shopping for a heavy winter coat and reliable pair of snow boots immediately. The layered look is unvaryingly “in” at Dartmouth from winter to winter. With snow blanketing the ground from Thanksgiving through spring break, it’s easy to forget how the Green got its name. Mud season follows closely on the heels of the melting snow but soon yields to a gorgeous, vibrant spring. During autumn, the trees change early and dramatically—the region is well known for its spectacular fall foliage. Summer weather is lazy and peaceful.

The area around Dartmouth is breathtakingly scenic in all seasons. Some students manage their D-Plans to avoid being caught on campus during the winter in order to avoid complications stemming from Seasonal Affective Disorder, which sometimes affects people who are not accustomed to the limited daylight hours of extreme latitudes.
