I really love Dickinson but lately I've been hearing a lot of negative things about the party scene. Many people have said that it is difficult to fit in if you don't drink. I heard the school is even nicknamed "Drinkinson" by the students because alcohol consumption is so prevalent.
Are the rumors true? Is there that much pressure to drink at Dickinson? I didn't think it was a party school but the things I've been reading have been proving that assumption wrong.
Of course I know that there is partying at every school, but I also know that I need to be in an intellectually stimulating environment where the majority of the students take their studies seriously and are at college first and foremost to learn.
If anyone has any feedback, I'd greatly appreciate it :)
