While Hanover may be a small College town, there is plenty of things to see and do.


The reserve corridor in the basement of Baker Library houses the famous frescoes painted by  José Clemente Orozco in the 1930s.  The murals were controversial for their depiction of the impact of colonization and industrialization of native cultures on the American continent.  You can spend hours viewing the 24 panels that make up the entire work.

Opposite of Baker Library sits the glass structure of the Hopkins Center, Dartmouth's home for the Arts.  Inside you'll find student studios, gallerys, and exhibitions, workshops, a theatre, and an auditorium. 

Next door to the Hopkins Center is the Hood Museum of Art with a vast permanent collection of art and objects spanning American, Asian, African and European cultures.


Also in the Hop, movies are featured throughout the year as part of the Dartmouth and Loew Film Series.  Dance, concert, recital, and theatre performances are common throughout the week.

A Little Bit of Luck

As you pass through the main corridor of the Hopkins Center, don't forget to pause at the bronze bust of  Warner Bentley.  Students rub the bust's nose for good luck as they pass by.  It can't hurt, can it?
