Back on Campus: Students Get Here, Get Tested, and Move In

With optimism, laughter, and some nervous tears, half of Dartmouth’s undergraduate students—including the new Class of 2024—returned this week to a campus altered by coronavirus. Wearing masks, they were met under tents by a welcoming committee of staff volunteers who handed out information, answered questions, and guided the students through their first round of COVID-19 tests. They will follow quarantine rules in their residence halls for 14 days, and be tested again on their third and seventh days in Hanover. New student orientation continues through the weekend. Fall term classes begin Sept. 14 for all students, remote and on campus.
