Among the most notable colleges in New Hampshire are: the University of New Hampshire, Southern New Hampshire University, Dartmouth College, Keene State College, and Plymouth State College.
Prestigious Dartmouth College, located in the quaint town of Hanover, usually provides its graduates with the best median early-career salary of any other New Hampshire school. Many students go on to work in Software, Policy, and even become CEOs.
While some Ivy League schools see big increases in earning power when we include graduates with advanced degrees, Dartmouth sees a modest increase per year in both median early and mid-career salary. Most other schools in New Hampshire see similar small increases when all alumni are included.

Dartmouth is the most highly recommended college in the state: about 90 percent of alumni indicated that they would recommend the school to others. Dartmouth also has a low student to faculty ratio, with an undergrad enrollment of about 4,500.
