A fine small liberal arts college with National Historic landmarks like Old West designed by the man who designed DC and a well maintained campus. Ask your Independent Educational Consultant or school counselor if this might be an appropriate college for you or your child.

If your diving through Carlisle you definitely need to drive past or see the grounds at Dickinson College. What a beautiful place, and since its center in town you have dining options and activities close by!

It was a fantastic weekend with about 75 classmates (plus many spouses) attending. The college went overboard to make us feel special.

The front office - Bandy was excellent, helpful and pleasant. He put us on a family floor that made our stay extra sweet. The room was clean, the beds were clean, the was no dust - we were satisfied - definitely they will get our business in the future.

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
