Council on Class Officers (COCO)


The Council on Class Officers (COCO) acts as representative body for each class to promote Class Pride, encourage Class Community and help build strong relationships among the students. Class Councils are always open for new ideas and are constantly creating new ways to celebrate student involvement at Dartmouth.

How to Join

Elections for upperclassmen are held each year in the spring term for the following year's Class Council.

Any interested first year can apply to First Year Class Council by application during Fall Term. At the end of Fall Term, elections will be held internally for First Year Class Council Officer positions.
