I come from a school where I was the smart kid in the class and coming to Dickinson I am now just the average kid and I know I have a lot to learn. The professors here are extremely helpful, they know what they are doing and are always willing to help. I'm not just learning in the classroom, I also learn from other students who are willing to share what they know everyday.

    Dickinson College is a small, liberal arts school. It has a small community feeling, but it certainly doesn't feel like high school like I was worried about before coming here. While it does have a very diverse mix of students, most students tend to be preppy, sporty, and liberal.

    The most successful students in Dickinson are the ones that know they are comfortable both in a crowd and in solitude, by themselves. You wouldn't expect it at first, but the setting of the college demands that students will be able to navigate their way through the facilities provided only if they are consciously proactive. Dickinson is not for the close-minded and impatient.

    Dickinson has helpful professors and faculty. Dickinson College needs to lower its tuition, add more food and major options. It has a good study abroad program.

    Dickinson is a unique college that stresses personal responsibility, sustainability on a small and large scale, and a global education. It allows for a diverse educational opportunity as well as giving students a great, small-town campus and a community. It definitely has its own flair and keeps students coming back for more.

    Dickinson College provides a friendly yet challenging atmosphere for those who wish to push themselves to their full potential. Acceptance is incredibly selective but is not based solely on academic standing. The college looks for well-rounded students who are adequately prepared for this next step in their education.

    The school is very dedicated to sustainability. Many people (including myself) are dissatisfied with the social environment, though and this produces a negative vibe sometimes around campus. The standards for education are very high and there are many incredible, helpful, inspiring professors.
