Studying Abroad, Dartmouth Tops the Ivy League

A news release from the College announced that “Dartmouth ranks third in the nation among doctoral degree granting institutions in undergraduate study abroad participation.” The study noted that 60.9% of Dartmouth students studied abroad, behind only Yeshiva University at 75.1% and the University of Denver at 62.8%. Only two other Ivy League schools made the top forty: Princeton (34th) and Harvard (40th)

The information comes from the Institute of International Education’s annual “Open Doors” study. When compared with liberal arts colleges, however, Dartmouth’s place is decidedly sub-par, being tied for 40th place.
