“Nice Campus, Good School”
Review of Dickinson College

Dickinson College
Ranked #2 of 30 things to do in Carlisle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 March 2013

As a local I have driven through the campus for years. Beautiful campus, many people comment on the trees, however I like going through the campus with no leaves on the trees since you can see the buildings better. The campus has some older buildings and some newer ones with interesting architectural features. My employer is working on the campus so I get to visit the campus and enjoy it more than I previously have.
About the only down side of the campus location is the crossing of Rt 11 via the crosswalks. Several students have been hit here and seriously injured. During peak times there is now a crossing guard.
Dickinson College's ranking in the 2013 edition of Best Colleges is 46th in Liberal Arts Colleges. The Law School is now affiliated with Penn State University.

Dickinson, an excellent college established in 1783, offers a wonderful international program. It has a beautiful campus and a well-stocked book store and a modern, hi-tech library. A must on everyone's college tour.

Dickinson College is a highly selective liberal arts school with a lot of soul. It offers some of the top study abroad programs and lies in a beautiful location. It has a small town feel with a global perspective.

Easy drive thru a medium size campus. Lots of beautiful trees. Well marked by signs. A typical small town liberal arts school.
