Pretty place to take pictures.

Great place to take pictures and walk around. Lots of interesting backgrounds. Nice, red Adirondack chairs to lounge in. Pretty flowers.

I have been involved with Dickinson College for many years and it continues improve. Their international focus is a big plus and the campus is incredibly beautiful. It is an honor to recommend it to family, friends, and colleagues for their high school age children.

The campus is beautiful. Everyone is happy to be there and genuinely friendly. The college is deeply committed to sustainability. Stop by The Quarry coffee for breakfast or lunch. Jeanne, Monique and George will brighten your day -- and George makes a mean BBQ rib. The Glorious Morning Muffin is just that. Also visit the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, one... More

Brought a group of students from Japan here in August 2015. They enjoyed the ease of access to the rest of the town and spent a lot of time at the HUB for meals. The red chairs are AWESOME.

Lovely grounds. Very historical. We walked under the magnificent oak trees and admired Old West which is the most northern place the Confederate Army reached during the Civil Warand served as a hospital.

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.

Full disclosure for this review: I currently work at Dickinson College but this is not meant to sell the school in one way or another as an institution of higher learning. However, if you are in the Carlisle area, you absolutely need to visit the campus as it beautiful and historic in its own right. It is the first college... More

Located very close to downtown, this school established in the late 1700s is very well maintained and the architecture is interesting. Well worth the walk around campus.
