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.
