“A rainy visit to a beautiful campus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

We recently travelled from Western Massachusetts to Carlisle, Pennsylvania to explore Dickinson for my 17 year old daughter, as a potential college. It is a beautiful school with an interesting history, that clearly values its history, and sees its place as it moves towards the future. The information session was interesting, while the tour was good but not great. The buildings are stunning, made from stone and awe-inspiring. Being in suburban Carlisle was less than inspiring, however, especially coming from New England where so many small colleges are in stunning surroundings. The school certainly is impressive and would be a great place to spend four formative years. A bastion of intellect in a sea of central Pennsylvanian industry...

“pretty college campus”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
