In the Field: Students Travel and Learn

News subtitle

With Dartmouth as basecamp, students make the most of trips between terms.

Students are constantly taking advantage of travel opportunities at Dartmouth to learn in the field. 

Over spring break in March, more than 60 students, most of them undergraduates, went to Mexico City on trips sponsored by the Magnuson and Rassias centers and the Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble. 

Another group visited West Virginia and Washington, D.C., on a trip sponsored by the Sustainability Office and Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society to learn about Appalachia and energy systems in transition.

Winter Trips

At the end of fall term, the Dartmouth Center for Social Impact arranged for 13 students and two staff members to explore the southern border in Texas, from El Paso to Brownsville.

At the same time, students from Biology 70: Biologic Lessons of the Eye spent eight days at the renowned Aravind Eye Hospital in Madurai, India.
