Celebrating Dartmouth’s 250th anniversary in a very big, very green way!

We’re asking you, our alumni and families from around the world, to show your Dartmouth pride by sporting green on Charter Day, December 13. Wherever you are ’round the girdled earth, pull out your prized sweatshirt, don your green socks, put your baby in a Dartmouth onesie, or keep warm with that Big Green pompom hat, and show your love of Dartmouth!

Then, head to our Greenlighting Day locations where we’ll turn some of the world’s most notable landmarks and attractions green to kick off our celebratory 250th year. Just as Baker Tower sends its green glow as a beacon to Dartmouth alumni, we’ll shine a spotlight on Dartmouth in the communities that our alumni call home.

Share your pictures of you in your green or your view of our greenlit landmarks, and send your birthday wishes using #Dartmouth250 on social media!
