Hopkins Center Fellows Program
The Hopkins Center (Hop) Fellows Program will allow Dartmouth students to explore the field of arts management. Fellows will be given the chance to grow as leaders by taking on real world responsibilities in various departments while learning from Hop staff.
“Interning at the Hop was one of the most significant experiences I had at Dartmouth. The skills I learned and the relationships that this internship fostered have direct ties to my current job at a performing arts center.” —Emily Neely ’17
“My internship within the Hopkins Center exposed me to the niche occupation of arts administration and advertisement, while providing me with the skills to pursue a non-linear creative career path.” —Hollye Swinehart ’18
