The Thought Project

The Thought Project Living Learning Community aims to build a community of Dartmouth students committed to embracing culture, broadening experiences and becoming reflective citizens of the world.

About the Community

Each week, the Thought Project hosts a student-faculty “Food for Thought” dinner on a variety of topics ranging from healthcare, to environmental justice, to feminism. In addition, we host a range of social events such as attending HOP performances and visiting the Organic Farm. We are seeking curious, engaged applicants who want to take part in meaningful dialogue and forge deep community bonds. Check out the Thought Project website for more information.
