Degree: Neuroscience
Graduation Year: 2016

Dickinson College is an excellent liberal arts school! It has many academic resources and the faculty are not only exceptional instructors in the classroom but investigate diverse and fanscinating research topics. My biggest complaint about Dickinson is adjunct professors. It does not happen often but when a professor goes on sabbatical the college will hire temporary adjunct professors. The adjuncts do not always understand the culture and philosophy of the institution and they are not always the most informed and knowledgeable instructors. I recommend avoiding taking classes instructed by adjuncts if at all possible unless you hear from a friend that they are a good instructor. Dickinson prepares it's students well for graduate and professional school and for the workforce. Choosing the right major is essential at Dickinson and don't let anyone tell you that something is a go nowhere major. I know plenty of Dickinson graduates that majored in English or philosophy and found jobs easily. Dickinson has a career center that is very helpful with networking and career guidance. I would definetly take advantage of it. I would recommend Dickinson to anyone!

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

Dickinson College is a great institution for those who prefer a one-on-one approach with faculty and administrators. Students can easily meet with faculty for extra help, and meet with administrators to discuss any potential problems. However, being a small, liberal arts, private school, the cost of tuition is high and the campus lacks diversity. As the campus is located in central Pennsylvania, it can be difficult to venture out for networking opportunities, but many majors and clubs plan trips to New York City and Philadelphia. The school can be generous with the research grants that it gives out, though the amount of merit-based scholarships is limited.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2009

Small school really creates a close-knit community. Class sizes are small, which allow for more one-on-one time with professors. Amazing faculty, great study abroad programs, and fantastic Greek life.

This was the best college for my degree program. There were ample opportunities for student involvement as well as student employment within my field.

Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2012

Dickinson is a great school and has an inspiring community. I found my time in my classes to be though provoking and my extracurricular gave me the opportunity to hold various leadership positions throughout my time on campus. Carlisle is a cute town, but when I was there the nightlife was centered around campus parties and the few bars on the main street.
