Our son recently graduated, and during each of our visits to this liberal arts college we found the architecture and grounds on campus to be quite lovely. He made life-long friends, and received a comprehensive education.

The locale is peaceful and relaxed but the students clearly have a passion for a high quality education.

The curriculum certainly is varied enough to capture the interests of even the most uninspired young student.

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...
