The 249-year-old Dartmouth College is one of the eight Ivy League schools, and it ranks11th in American Universities according to 2018U.S.News. Even though its admissions in China has been very 'squeaky', it is still a lot of Chinese students’ dream school.

What kind of university is Dartmouth College?

What conditions does it require for students?

Are you good enough to be a member of it?

In SIA, we will demystify this university will admissions officers from Dartmouth College.


Mr. Zholl R. Tablante, Dartmouth College Admissions Officer, visited SIA to give a detailed explanation of Dartmouth College's curriculum, teaching features and application requirements for the teachers, students and parents.


Dartmouth College is located in Hanover, New Hampshire, and is close to the famous agricultural and pastoral areas of Vermont and New Hampshire. The food there is fresh and nutritious. The natural environment around Dartmouth College is very beautiful, with the famous Connecticut River and the surrounding mountains. Sports activities in the college are very popular, especially skiing in winter and boating in summer.

One of the eight Ivy League schools

Dartmouth College is one of the world's top Ivy League schools. One of its distinguishing feature s is that it is a university, but it calls itself College.

Dartmouth sees itself as a College is not groundless: the teacher-student ratio is 1:7, nearly 70% of the classes are small classes, and it attaches great importance to cultivate versatile students. Its undergraduate education often competes with Princeton over the top place on the list of US News.  


On the other hand, Dartmouth is a true university although it is small, it has rich teaching resources and great strength. Dartmouth College ranks 8th in the nation's top research universities, and when it comes to 'student satisfaction,' it ranks second in the nation, second only to Princeton.

Dartmouth Plan

Dartmouth has its own semester system called D-Plan, the Dartmouth Plan. There four semesters in a school year. Apart from the third year in which students must choose the summer semester. Students only need to choose three semesters per year, and the fourth semester is left to the students themselves to decide how to spend it. Zholl thinks that this is very good system. Dartmouth students often learn with great interest. The extra semester allows students to do things they want other than study. In terms of applying for an intern, most American students will seek internships during the summer or winter vacation, but Dartmouth students can have internships in the spring or fall, with greater freedom.

Rich exchange program

On this basis, Dartmouth offers a rich exchange program for students. The exchange programs are divided into three major categories. Their duration is generally one semester, and available in four semesters. The three major categories are the Domestic Exchange Program (DEP), the Foreign Study Program (FSP), and the Language Learning Program (LSP). The domestic exchange program is done with  other schools in the United States. The foreign study projects are to study in different countries outside the United States, to feel different cultures in other countries. It is worth mentioning that Dartmouth’s teachers will follow the students in the past. That is to say, even in a foreign country, you can still accept Dartmouth's high quality education.

Interaction between admissions officers and students in SIA


Winter skiing, summer boating

Having said Dartmouth's unique learning activities, I have to mention Dartmouth's sports culture. Thanks to the school’s own geographical environment, students can row a boat in the Kanghe River in summers. Jus imagine the deep blue Kang River, the wide river surface, the long distant mountain peaks, the greenery of the campus, the star-studded ships, and occasionally the glimpse of the campus hidden in the green, quite petty bourgeoisie, all of these scenes are so appealing. Although the summer time is very good, the students in Dartmouth seem to prefer the winter. As the saying goes, ' six months a year is winter in Dartmouth .' In winters, the students go back to ski. During the Spring and Autumn Period, students are more inclined to go hiking and camping to be closer to nature. And it also strengthens the brotherhood between students. It is also the embodiment of Dartmouth's tenacity.

Principal of Sendelta:John Sun讯得达国际书院-外方校长美国顶尖大学教育管理学和计算机科学硕士;十三年国际学校管理经验:对于国际学校管理体系有独特见解,建立高标准的国际学校管理体系。亲爱的讯得达家人和朋友们,上周时间虽短,事情却不少。首先,我想要说这周我们的学生表现非常棒。我特别观察他们在教室使用笔记本/iPad 的情况。大多数学生在用电子产品非常认真地学习,对于这些学生电子产品使用不成问题,只有极个别学生因为玩游戏电子设备被没收(没收完几小时后会还给学生)。上周我决定,教室有老师在的情况下学生使用电子产品,被没收后到下周一才可取回。现在他们认识到电子产品对他们的重要性了,自己会衡量下在教室玩游戏的后果。作为校领导,需要起模范带头作用,一方面我需要坚定制度执行一方面要给建议和关心学生,并需要在学生需求与使用权限之间做平衡,这点还需要家长们的支持。 EC...

Vice Principal:Tremayne Gibson讯得达国际书院-学术副校长美国哈佛大学历史本科;美国约翰·霍普金斯大学国际关系硕士亲爱的讯得达家人们,在与大家分享上周校园新鲜事前,就新调整的几点重要事项在此作以说明。首先,经过与全体老师探讨商定,学术部决定原定9月10日发给家长的“学术预警信”将推迟发出。因为目前学生成绩单中只有个别测试分数,老师们认为这还不足以说明学生整体学习的好坏,仅以当前成绩作为判断依据对他们来说是不公平的。因此,如果家长登录 PowerSchool 看到一到两个低分,也不用过于紧张。对于我们的很多新生来说,美式教育是一个全新的世界,他们可能还处于适应期,日后会逐步提高,所以“学术预警信”将会在国庆节后10月10日发出。其次,为促进学生学习,上周起教学部开始加强自习监管力度。白天没有排课的时间段,所有学生必须在指定区域由老师监管集中上自习。学校鼓...
