Class Day Severe Weather Update!!!

Through consultation with Dartmouth Conferences & Events Services and the meteorologists from the Fairbanks Museum weather station, it has been advised to move the Geisel Class Day ceremony to a virtual format. Implementation of a severe weather plan has been activated due to a forecast of high winds, hail, and lightning.

The current forecast shows a few localized showers through mid-afternoon, then numerous showers and locally strong thunderstorms, some with heavy rain, gusty winds, and hail, spreading west to east late afternoon into the evening. Southwest winds 10 to 15 mph, gusting to 30 mph.

The ceremony speakers will be live streamed. Students and guests can view the virtual ceremony from this link (
