Favorite Things To Do
Dartmouth goes out of its way to keep students entertained. Big name musical, comedy, dance, and theater acts perform at the Hopkins Center all the time. Student musical, dance, and theater ensembles also stage performances each term. On off-nights at "The Hop" there's usually a movie showing or some gala going on at the Hood Museum of Art, right next door. Students mob the Green during those rare points in the school year when it's warm enough to be outside. Pickup games of rugby, soccer, and ultimate Frisbee are common. Collis Commonground is home to everything from academic conferences and volunteer fairs to student performances and dance parties.
Students can always be found shooting pool or enhancing their beer pong game by playing ping-pong in the basement of Thayer Dining Hall or the Collis Student Center. The Kresge Fitness Center on the third floor of Alumni Gym was redesigned in the summer of 2006, and features state-of-the-art cardio, resistance training, and other fitness equipment, as well as ample free weights. The Dartmouth Outing Club is one of the oldest and largest student organizations on campus. It organizes a wide variety of outdoor activities for students of all interests and experience levels.
