Thriving Through Transitions LLC

Incoming first-year students can kick-start their time at Dartmouth by joining the Thriving Through Transitions (T3) Living Learning Community.

About the Community

The T3 LLC is a place where you belong and matter. We provide opportunities to connect with your classmates in the LLC and other members of the Dartmouth community, reflect on your experiences, and navigate your transition to college with intentionality.

Over the course of the year, your T3 cohort will have access to a variety of virtual programs designed to enhance your wellbeing and success. These include mindfulness practices that promote insight and awareness, identification of strengths, values, and other sources of meaning, and less-structured experiences designed to build relationships across the community. T3 is all about learning through experience. This means you will have the chance to experiment with a variety of practices that can help you create the life you want to be living during your first year at Dartmouth and beyond.

Residency Expectations

Residents are asked to engage with the program on a weekly basis through virtual community gatherings and other programming.

Application Prompts

  1. Describe some of your interests and values that connect with your reasons for wanting to participate in a community focused on wellbeing.
  2. The T3 community is founded on the principles of cultivating perspective, connecting authentically, engaging mindfully, acting intentionally, and living meaningfully. Pick one of these principles and discuss why it's important to you.
  3. How do you plan to foster an environment of wellbeing for yourself and others in this LLC? How can a community like this support your wellbeing?


Some residents of this learning community will have the opportunity to live co-located together in one of our residence halls to allow for a maximum level program immersion. As space is limited, we will also offer the opportunity for students assigned to live in residence halls around campus to participate in programming through our hybrid model.
