Dartmouth is coming to Boston to celebrate Charter Day in Boston and the grand finale of the College’s year of 250th anniversary celebrations.

Join in the fun as Professor Don Pease, CNN’s Jake Tapper ’91, retired Boston Bruins player Lee Stempniak ’05, and other special guests wrap up this historic year.
