Administration: Except for this new prohibition thing that will obviously only make things worse, the school is not really interested in breaking up the fun or making sure people are not partying. The most important thing to Dartmouth is the student's safety and/or Dartmouth's public image: you can get away with most things that don't jeopardize one/both of those.

Administration: Administration is more concerned with PR than students, and most students agree with this.

Administration: When I was at Dartmouth, the college handled honor code violations with the most stringency. Now that they've established new rules to address underage drinking, that may change.

Administration: The administration is effective as possible.

Administration: The course-work is really fast-paced. Taking 3 courses keeps one busy late into the night every other day. But the brighter side is that we then take relaxation/entertainment seriously. The best way to navigate this college is to give whatever activity you do 100% focus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Run-ins with the campus authorities are common but not at all scary. Rightly—and thankfully for many students—the administration tends to treat alcohol abuse as a medical issue, rather than a moral one. If you are caught publicly intoxicated by the campus authorities, sanctions will likely include a fine, a mandatory talk with your Class Dean, and a referral to Dick’s House Office of Counseling and Human Development.

Safety & Security (S&S) is not out to get anyone. They have a pretty good handle on the party atmosphere at Dartmouth, and their primary concern is always for student safety. The Hanover Police Department is an entirely different matter. Those guys don’t mess around, so unless bumming a ride back to campus from the Grafton County Jail is how you’d like to spend a Sunday morning, stay well away from the “H-Po”—of course, that’s easier said than done.
