    Campus Safety

    The campus security will break up any dangerous events, usually

    Greek Life

    non existent

    Clubs and Activities

    There are all kinds of clubs, but as an athlete it is hard to join any.

    Great for these types of students

    Athletes, and people who want good classes and teachers without being suffocated by school.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a dance every two weeks and it's actually pretty fun to go!

    Bang for the buck

    Hispanic students get a lot of their schooling paid for, and it's hard to afford it yourself. Make sure you apply for all the scholarships that you can!

    What to do for fun

    You can party, watch sports that are constantly going on, and do things in the dorm. The RA's are always setting up fun activities.

    Food and Dining

    The food is good, but repetitive!

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is fun, but the dorms lack privacy and they are cramped.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are challenging, depending on your major. I'm a bio major, so I am constantly struggling through classes. Don't let yourself procrastinate!

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for financial aid, get a couple good roommates, and stay focused!

    In three sentences

    Fun academic and athletic environment. Helpful and welcoming social environment. Good college experience.

    Great for on-line students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be involved!

    In three sentences

    DSU is a good school for a student looking to attend college in a small town. A lot of change has been going on with the recent oil boom, but it still maintains a home-town feel. It is also a good option for someone looking into on-line classes.

    So many to choose from there is something for everyone.

    Great for these types of students

    Any and all.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I just started 3 weeks ago, so I'm unsure of this.

    Bang for the buck

    Honestly, I had the option to go to several other colleges and I picked this one because their services are so great and they are beyond helpful. The cost is defiantly a benefit also, very good prices.

    What to do for fun

    The campus is amazing at constantly having many different kinds of events going on thro out the week and weekend. It is a smaller town so there is limited activities outside the campus.

    Food and Dining

    Lots of choices, and good food.

    Dorm Life

    I don't know anyone who stays here, but I have never heard anything bad about it.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are going for you BSN degree I would encourage you to get some of your harder classes like chemistry and biology done before entering the program. Ask lots of question, no question is stupid.

    In three sentences

    Dickinson has great opportunities for non-traditional students. They are very supportive with anything you could possibly need. I would defiantly recommend this school to others.
