Degree: Neuroscience
Graduation Year: 2016

Dartmouth College was a transformative 4 years. I knew this was the college I would matriculate to after visiting my senior year in high school. Of all the schools I visited, Dartmouth had the most enthusiastic and genuine student body I had ever witnessed. Students would literally go late to class and drop whatever they were doing to make sure I knew how to navigate the picturesque campus. Sure, the school could be more diverse and had it's share of shortcomings, but by and by the college on the hill had a intimate and friendly community, renowned academic rigor, and flexible term plan where you could travel the world and undertake internships whilst completing your classes in earnest. All in all, this small college was what you made out of it. If you strove to have a cosmopolitan friend group, engage in a plethora of extracurricular activities, and study effectively--making sure to unwind on the weekends--you'd feel yourself grow as an individual and transform into someone ready to tackle the corporate world, head on.

Degree: Environmental Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Be sure to prioritize networking! Overall it is a great school, but do not be too distracted with the college scene/ social life. It is more important that you seek out the right resources and develop mentorships with appropriate professors and counselors.

I enjoyed college but wish I had pursued a science/engineering degree and graduated with a BS rather than a BA.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 1999

The teaching at Dartmouth is exceptional and the professors are very approachable. The Dartmouth run off campus programs are amazing and most students take advantage of them. The coming and going of students on campus creates a dynamic atmosphere - one that promotes the sharing of new ideas. The school spirit is incredible too - just a very special place to go to school.

What advice can you offer other students?

Do not acquire significant loan debt without performing proper research/due diligence on your investment. Apply for internships in your potential career to evaluate whether or not the degree program is a good fit.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2012

Tell us about your college experience.

It was a great fit - I met some of my best friends and had my best educational experiences there.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would choose the same degree, but would have structured my biology studies differently.

What advice can you offer other students?

Be smart about picking classes that are challenging without being out of your reach.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2011

Tell us about your college experience.

College was a good fit for me though I was not as much into the social/drinking scene as many other students. This was fine for me though; I'm very comfortable following my own path. But I loved my courses and professors, and being involved with dance and campus organizations.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would choose the same degree, but I would also take science/public health-related courses. I want to pursue a career as a Nutritionist and Yoga Teacher, so having an academic background might have helped me when applying for graduate programs.

What advice can you offer other students?

Be open to taking a variety of courses and get involved with as many groups as you're interested. Also, don't let anyone tell you that what you want to do isn't "right" or that you should pursue something else because it's easier or the more traditional route. You'll be happiest when you follow your passion and heart.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 1984

Tell us about your college experience.

Dartmoouth was not a good fit. TOO CONSERVATIVE!

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would have majored in something I liked.

What advice can you offer other students?

Major in something you like rather than what you should take to get into law school.

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2010

Tell us about your college experience.

Mostly I think some of my problems were things I would have had issues with anywhere. But, others were specific to the school.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes, because I loved it. I am not sure I would have graduated if I hadn't majored in it, because those were the classes that helped me keep going when times were tough.

What advice can you offer other students?

Trust your instincts.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2011

Tell us about your college experience.

Dartmouth is a liberal arts school, and I was interested mostly in the knowledge, civic virtue, and intellectual growth that accompanied my education rather than any direct connection to salary or vocation after graduation.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would not change a thing. I would rather have a basis in humanities, sciences, politics. literature, history than a narrow technical degree. I might lose some salary for it but it has made me a more well-rounded individual and a healthy intellectual life marks a better life than a larger paycheck.

What advice can you offer other students?

Don't worry about finding your dream job. Take opportunities and risks, and find your passion where you are planted. Read Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken." It is silly to look at forks in the road of our lives with awe and trepidation. Just choose and pursue it with passion and hard work.
