I've said this all my life, New Hampshire is the greatest state in the whole U S of A.  We have it all;  the mountains, the beach, the four seasons and wicked smaaat people that attended one of the greatest Ivy League Colleges in the country.  I didn't know that these people went to Dartmouth College and maybe you didn't either:

Mindy Kaling:   Mindy is all over the news today because yesterday, she gave the commencement speech for the Class of 2018.  She was fantastic from the beginning - and was able to joke about the state of the Country without being offensive to either side.

Shonda Rimes:  Shonda gave the commencement speech at Dartmouth in 2014.  Inspiring would not adequately describe her words.  She is, after all, one of the most successful TV writers of all time.

Meryl Streep only attended Dartmouth for a short time, but according to her website, she was very inspired by it.

Robert Frost:  New Hampshire's favorite poet.  Okay, MY favorite poet, especially when it snows.

Dr. Seuss:  Beloved Dr. Seuss spent his undergrad years in Hanover before he went to Oxford.

There must be something in the water here in New Hampshire.
