Dartmouth College, which is the smallest school in the Ivy League system, was founded in 1769. Nicknamed the Big Green, Dartmouth is consistently ranked as one of the top schools in the world. The school is located in Hanover, New Hampshire, and sits on 237 acres of land. Notable alumni are children’s book author Dr. Seuss, Former U.S. Senator Daniel Webster, poet Robert Frost, Fred Rogers AKA Mr. Rogers, Former Vice President of the U.S. Nelson Rockefeller, and actresses Aisha Tyler and Mindy Kaling. The school’s official motto is “Vox clamantis in deserto” or “a voice crying out in the wilderness,” and its color is Dartmouth Green. Dartmouth is home to the Women in Science Program; it was the first university to start a mentoring program that provides undergraduate women with the chance to perform research with a faculty member in her field. Instead of having two semesters, the school goes by the D-Plan, where the year is split up into four seasons. Students stay on campus the summer after their sophomore year so that they can work in the fall, winter or spring at a job or internship. More than 75 percent of undergraduates participate in sports, and the college has national and Ivy League champions among its 35 Division I varsity teams. Students can join 33 different club sports. The school’s unofficial mascot is Keggy the Keg.
