“pretty college campus”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

Dickinson has done a great deal to make this a really nice looking campus, and it fits in nicely with the historic parts of Carlisle which is very close by. The college has done a good job of making the campus more green through the extended use of their agricultural programs. good place to go on the college circuit a real PA campus with nice stone buildings.

“Nice Campus, Good School”
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.

“High-ranked liberal arts college”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

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.
