I visit the Dickinson campus as a parent of a visiting team. The students there are very friendly and helpful. The recent game followed the Dickinson men's lacrosse team having their Ninth Annual Volleyball-a-Thon this past weekend to raise money for the Cumberland County American Red Cross. The 50 members of the team played volleyball on the campus outdoor sand... More

What's to say? The students (downtown)are classy and well-behaved. The campus is a delight. And the overall setting in Carlisle PA would please any parent's heart - and, hopefully, the student's heart too.

I was surprised I would like Carlisle as much as I did the first time I visited, which was September 2013. It was family weekend at Dickinson College. The "vibe" of the town and the university were just great. I didn't realize Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King spoke here; the location was on the underground railroad during the Civil War.

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.
