Off the Green Program

Off the Green is a career immersion program series (offered during Dartmouth breaks) focused on a career field or industry in a major metropolitan area. Each Off the Green program is designed to provide undergraduate students with an overview of a particular industry sector. The Off the Green program is a joint partnership of the CPD and the Office of Alumni Relations; other Dartmouth offices often co-sponsor individual programs if they are offered in a mission-relevant industry.

Students participating in the program engage in a series of site visits, presentations/panels, and an alumni networking social.

Program Goals:

  • Learn about the range of positions available in an industry sector
  • Observe the differences between organizations including: office dynamics, culture, layout of the organization/facility, dress, interaction between colleagues, etc.
  • Make connections and establish relationships
  • Enhance and strengthen your networking skills

Why the program was created:

  • Opportunity to explore career areas of interest
  • Get an insider's view of professional work environments
  • Network and seek advice and guidance from alumni and parents in the field
