The Graduate Outing Club (GOC) was created in Summer 2010 to provide outdoor opportunities, networking, and fellowship for the Dartmouth graduate student community. The GOC is an officially recognized organization of the Graduate Student Council, which has provided funding for trips on several occasions. Our activities encompass the full range of outdoor recreation available in the region: hiking, camping and backpacking, biking, rock climbing, canoeing and kayaking, shooting sports, trailwork, and general nature appreciation.


Since its creation, the GOC has organized several successful trips, including:

  • Hikes of Mt. Moosilauke and Franconia Ridge organized for recently arrived grad students
  • Snowshoeing Mt. Cardigan
  • Winter XC ski weekend to the Second Grant

We are actively planning many other hikes and trips for all interests and skill levels.

Participation and Organization

The GOC is organized by the graduate students, but is open to participation by the entire Dartmouth community. The club is run by a small 'executive board' of students experienced with or learning to organize and lead outdoor trips. Graduate Student Council Recognition paperwork is found at: [1]
