We at the DCCO hope that you join us in bringing some Dartmouth adventures and traditions—both old & new—to Ohio.
Join Dartmouth and Cornell Club members for a popular lantern walking tour on the most beautiful 19th century street in one of Columbus’ most haunted neighborhoods—Town Franklin. This is a chance to recapture the mystery of a fall evening with the crunch of autumn leaves, the promise of sweet treats, and the thrill of a story. Alumni will meet at the Topiary Park’s Gatehouse on Town Street; parking available on East Town Street. Bring flashlight (if possible) or help carry one of our lanterns. Read more

DCCO is mentoring with South High School in Columbus, which was named Diplomas Now High School of the Year last summer. As part of the program, 9th graders are assigned to teams named after Ivy League schools – and the Dartmouth squad is the best one (of course)! DCCO members have enjoyed getting to know these inner-city students and are excited to be part of this meaningful program throughout the year. Click here to learn more about the program and to get involved.
The Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network of Ohio (DEN Ohio) invites you to explore the NEW national DEN online platform: www.DENAlumni.org.
