Dartmouth students and faculty are filled with an adventuresome spirit, embracing opportunities and challenges with curiosity, courage, and tenacity. With the support of their classmates and professors, Dartmouth students reach beyond their comfort zones and explore beyond the frontier of their own expectations. For some, this means leaping into a political debate that extends beyond class and into a nearby café. For others, it means traveling to Greenland and taking an ice sample from a 50,000 year-old glacier. At Dartmouth, learning is an adventure.
