What is your overall opinion of this school?

Dickinson College is an extremely beautiful campus that has preserved the architecture and style from when it was originally founded. Along with these history-preserving buildings, they have new facilities, such as their gym and dorm buildings, that give the school a modern touch. On top of this, the faculty and students are very eager to help. As a prospective student visiting the campus, I could truly feel the tight knit community and definitely see it as a warm, welcoming institution with great resources to thrive.

Dickinson college is pretty exciting but gets a bit boring sometimes. The events on the weekends are monotonous and if you do not party, there's basically nothing you can do to enjoy your weekend. Playing soccer is my only way of having fun.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Dickinson College is a great school. The professors are dedicated to helping students and translating their passion for the subjects they teach. There is a sense of community between the students, staff, and faculty - partly because of the smaller student body and class size, but also because of the public awareness on the campus and willingness to remain open to opinions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Dickinson College is an exceptional place to be a student. Academically, I feel challenged but I'm also constantly fascinated and excited for class discussions and meetings with professors, who all knew my name by the end of the first week. The student body is driven but exceptionally friendly, I have yet to find a standoffish or rude person on campus after one year. The administration values each and every student and is always accessible to students, which I personally appreciate as I came to Dickinson from a large public high school where the administration could not have been more removed from student life. I have already had dinner with the president of the college, and have yet to have a class exceeding 20 students. My first-year dorm was amazing, and my second-year building is even better. I cannot express how positively I feel about my Dickinson experience so far, it's truly a wonderful place to learn and grow as an individual!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Dickinson College was definitely the right choice for me. While on campus I am always able to learn, in and out of class. My favorite part of Dickinson is being able to meet students from all over the world. I have been able to make friends from so many different places, in and out of the United States. It is an amazing opportunity to learn next to students who have different life experiences than you. If you listen to people's stories and get to know them, you can learn so much and truly grow as an individual. Dickinson also has many different activities for students to participate in as well. Students can be as active in campus life as they choose. There are many opportunities for engagement on campus, both academic or extracurricular. The opportunities for engagement and the ability to meet new people is part what makes Dickinson so special.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Dickinson is a good, small school with lots of community engagement. Dickinson has many programs that give students a lot of opportunities to acquire and expand their knowledge. One of the things I love most about Dickinson is their involvement with the community. Dickinson has many opportunities for its students to engage with the community. There are clubs that plan events to raise money for an elementary school, have required park clean-up events, plan activities for local elementary students, etc. In doing so, community engagement teaches students to learn about their surroundings and those who live in it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a great school with a beautiful campus. There are many problems with the school, but from what I can see, less so than many other colleges. We have beautiful facilities, and the best parts about Dickinson are how accessible and friendly most staff and professors are, and how students can take such a wide variety of courses. Another amazing thing about Dickinson is that the class sizes are very small, which makes classes very personable. Some problems include limited public transportation, hard to get into classes you want, and many wealthy and contrite students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to Dickinson with a love for the environment and a passion for languages. Luckily, Dickinson has offered me many opportunities to invite both science and culture into my life. I have made Dickinson mine by learning Russian while also taking care of bees. I am able to attend Clarke Forum lectures while also singing at the Tree House Open Mic. With so many opportunities, it is almost overwhelming at what I can accomplish on campus. But, after a long day of living the dream, it is nice to go back to relax in my dorm. I know that my living space is a tranquil space that my roommate and I have built together. From my activities I have learned leadership skills and social skills that allow me to confront those who are not following quiet hours. I have worked through agreements with my roommates and neighbors to make sure everyone is getting the sleep they need and the study time they want.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's typical of a small, private, liberal-arts college. Carlisle, the surrounding town, is nice but a little run-down, and if you're into bar or outside party scenes there aren't a lot of opportunities. Students make their own fun. Academics are good-if you make the effort, you will get the grade and the opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I believe Dickinson is the best place for me to begin shaping the rest of my life. The first thing I noticed about Dickinson was the beautiful limestone-filled campus. However, beyond that, I found I was able to thrive at this school because of the small class sizes. Developing a one-on-one relationship with professors definitely benefited me as a student. Being able to attend office hours, or simply walking past and being greeted by name, has definitely been a highlight of my Dickinson experience so far. Furthermore, Dickinson students are passionate; they have goals and are willing to fight for those goals. Everyone brings something different, whether individually, culturally, or globally, which has truly opened my eyes and enabled me to see new things. However, sometimes at school, I find that I am feeling like an outsider, considering how different the Dickinson culture is from my home culture. Yet, I am excited about what Dickinson will be able to offer me in the future, particularly in terms of research and internship opportunities. My education here will give me the tools to follow any path in the future.
