What Students Are Saying

Dickinson seems like the perfect college for me. It's close, but not too close to where I live, there are many opportunities, and the study abroad program is awesome.
Cynthia from Greensburg, PA
Dickinson is a unique college that stresses personal responsibility, sustainability on a small and large scale, and a global education. It allows for diverse education, and giving students a great, small-town campus and a community. It definitely has its own flair and keeps students coming back for more.
