Dartmouth College is a full private university located in Hanover, New Hampshire (USA). It is a member of the Ivy League. Among other things, Dartmouth is noted for the stridency of the politically conservative members of its student body.

In 1819, Dartmouth College was the subject of the historic Dartmouth College Case, in which the State of New Hampshire attempted to amend the College's charter (signed by King George) to make it a Public university. The Supreme Court found the amendment of Dartmouth's charter to be a violation of a contract, and prevented New Hampshire from taking the college.

Dartmouth's motto is "Vox Clamantis in Deserto". The school color is a dark fir green. The sports teams go by the name Big Green, or Green, which replaced earlier mascots involving Native Americans. Dartmouth was strictly a men's college until the 1970s, when women were allowed to enroll as students.
