We are thrilled to welcome alumni to campus for Homecoming weekend, October 28-29, 2022. The weekend will celebrate reconnecting with campus and the Dartmouth community.

Gather with classmates and friends on Friday night for Dartoberfest, the annual Homecoming parade, Dartmouth Night and, of course, the legendary bonfire. As the fire winds down, join us for some post-glow merriment and treats. Kick off Saturday with a back-to-class lecture, then tailgate with old friends and new before watching the Big Green take on Harvard at Memorial Field. After the game, grab dinner in Hanover and join class dinners, mini reunions, and more.

Dartmouth Health and Safety Policies for Covid-19 will be in effect for Homecoming weekend events.
