New Hampshire has a proud tradition as the state with the first-in-the-nation presidential primary election. Dartmouth is a frequent campaign stop for presidential hopefuls, and has hosted a number of nationally televised presidential candidate debates, forums, interviews, and public lectures.

“What better place to be during a presidential election. To be able to experience that face-to-face with a potential future president of the United States is just an unparalleled opportunity.” Lili Stern ’22

“I saw Cory Booker when he was here and met Jay Inslee. It’s really exciting to have all these really big-name candidates come here and engage with Dartmouth students one-on-one.” Olivia Nadworny ’22
