Dartmouth College Class of 1969

ComingHome Weekend - October 6-8, 2023

Please join us. Register Now.

Based on a survey of our class, we have decided to hold our own fall weekend (which we have named “ComingHome”) on the first weekend in October that includes a home football game. We look forward to beautiful, New England fall foliage, warmer weather, and that special fellowship of our classmates.

Please note: Our ComingHome weekend will not coincide with the College’s own Homecoming celebration. This year, we have added two Friday afternoon events and a Sunday morning event (see below), and we’d love to have you all participate. (And please see the separate flyer if you want to make your own arrangements for an informal, pre-ComingHome stay at Moosilauke.)

Mark your calendar – book your hotel room – and plan to join us in Hanover for ComingHome on October 6-8, 2023.  The following schedule of events is tentative—subject to change—and as we get closer to the fall, we will provide information about how to sign up for the Friday and Saturday evening dinners.

Useful Upper Valley lodging information.
