Why go to Dartmouth? If you're looking for small-town New England charm and an Ivy League intellectual pedigree, it's hard to do better than Dartmouth. The college is also home to experts who know all about closed regimes: There's Libya expert par excellence Dirk Vandewalle and Jennifer Lind, who currently has her hands full trying to figure out what's going on in Kim Jong Un's North Korea. The school's Greek life was also the inspiration for the antics in National Lampoon's Animal House -- so rest assured, you'll have a good time.
