Rekindle Your Dartmouth Spirit

Save the Date: October 11-12, 2019 (Yale)

First held on September 17, 1895, Dartmouth Night was introduced by President William Jewett Tucker to give the College a day to invite alumni back to their alma mater and to unequivocally celebrate their achievements. 

Today, this more than century-old tradition continues and we invite you to come home to Dartmouth for a fun, fall weekend in Hanover. March with your class in the parade, join engaging lectures by Dartmouth scholars, introduce your family to campus, cheer on the Big Green, and gather with classmates and friends.
