大家好!上一篇帖子里我贴上了介绍美国常青藤盟校这篇文章的康奈尔大学和布朗大学两部分,今天来发另三所学校哦~

Dartmouth College ( founded in 1769) 达特茅斯学院

When people ask me what I like about Dartmouth, I often have a hard time coming up with a concise response. I think a better answer, however, is that I like the people. Students here are friendly. They welcomed me into their homes, classes and parties.


The school is isolated in New Hampshire but technologically advanced. Wireless Internet acess is available all over campus and every dorm room has free long distance telephone service. All Dartmouth  undergraduates own a personal computer; more than 9,000 PCs are in use campuswide.


concise n.简明的

作者关于达特茅斯学院网络和PC情况的描述是在十年前写的,我想现在肯定每个大学都已经达到了这种标准吧~

坐落于新罕布什尔州的汉诺威(Hanover)小镇。依照利扎维洛克牧师当初成立这个学校的目的,是为了培养当地印第安部落的年轻人和年轻白人。最初的两百年中只收男生,直到一九七二年才改为男女合校,是常青藤学院中最晚接纳女生的一个。尽管如此,该学院却是男孩教育最成功的学院之一,在如今男孩危机泛滥的美国,该学院仍有2/3的学生是男生。

达特茅斯学院是常春藤盟校中唯一叫“学院”而不叫“大学”的,学院校友、1801级研究生丹尼尔·韦伯斯特讲过:“虽然它仅仅是一所不大的学院,但是这里的人们都热爱它。”达特茅斯学院在全美顶尖研究型大学排行榜上位列第八,但若以“学生满意程度”来看,它排在全美第二,仅次于普林斯顿大学。


Yale University ( founded in 1701) 耶鲁大学

Yale is a great place in many ways but the living situation is definitely a high point for me. When students arrive on campus, they are each randomly assigned to one of 12 residential colleges. The living spaces are amazing compared to what I've seen at other schools. Each residence has several entryways with doors to suites at every floor. Common rooms in the suites have large windows with good views and decorative fireplaces.Each college has a basement that houses a variety of activities, from rock climbing walls and pottery studios to gyms and movie theaters.


Yale is rich. Of course, all of the Ivies have tremendous wealth. But at Yale, the money is more obvious. Architecturally, the school is amazing. Many of the newer buildings have been designed- at great expense- to look older; the windows deliberately cracked and repaired, the roof tiles chipped by hand, the stones stained and weathered. The school's power plant has gothic-style smokestacks. The money isn't just unsed on architecture, however. It's also spent on social activities and education. Renowed speakers are invited to the campus to speak to students.
 



gothic-style adj. 哥特式的

smokestack n. 大烟囱

renowed adj.有名的

耶鲁大学是全美最顶尖的研究性私立大学之一,话说以前出名的央视主持人芮成钢就曾是耶鲁大学青年学者,时过境迁,物是人非了~

University of Pennsylvania (founded in 1749) 宾夕法尼亚大学

Many of the students that I have met at Penn have commented on how well-dressed the campus is. It is common to find students walking across campus at noon on a Monday dresses like they are going to dinner parties rather than classes. I suppose one reason for the trend may just be the city environment. Students have access to the latest fashions, so it's easy to stay in touch.


Penn's picturesque campus is situated near the heart of Philadelphia, a vital and lively city. Founded by Benjamin Franklin, Penn's urban campus boasts many notable landmarks. Franklin Field is the oldest two-tiered stadium in the country with a seating capacity of approximately 52,000. The Penn Relays, the oldest organized relay competition in the United States( It began in 1895), is held every year in April. The Relays bring together the best track and field athletes from high schools and colleges worldwide.



本杰明 富兰克林


picturesque adj. 景色如画的,图画般的

Benjamin Franklin 本杰明 富兰克林(1706-1790)  出生于美国麻省波士顿,18世纪美洲深孚众望的全知全能型人物。美国著名政治家科学家,同时亦是出版商、印刷商、记者作家慈善家更是杰出的外交家发明家他是美国革命时重要的领导人之一,参与起草了《独立宣言》,并曾出任美国法国大使,成功取得法国支持美国独立。本杰明·富兰克林曾经进行多项关于的实验,并且发明了避雷针。被誉为:“他从天空中抓到雷电,从专制统治者手中夺回权力。”他还发明了双焦点眼镜,蛙鞋等等。同时作为一位伟大的报人,“在新闻名人祠里占据了一等一的英雄地位。”他是一位深受美国人民爱戴的民族英雄,被称为“伟大的公民”。

Franklin Field 富兰克林运动场,美国最古老的两层露天式运动场

the Penn Relays 宾州接力赛,美国最古老且有组织性的接力赛(始于1895年) 

宾夕法尼亚大学也是美国顶尖的私利研究型大学,位于宾夕法尼亚州的费城。
