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

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

Your T3 cohort will have access to a variety of programs designed to enhance your wellbeing and success. These include mindful practices (e.g. yoga, meditation) that promote insight and awareness, identification of strengths, values, and other sources of meaning, and experiences that 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 here at Dartmouth and beyond.

Residency Expectations

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