Campus Visit Notes for Dickinson College
This was a second visit for an admitted student trying to make a final decision. She met with a professor, and we took a tour and had lunch with a student. During lunch several other students came over and joined us and answered questions, so that was very interesting. Several of the students we talked to came from far enough away that they had to fly to school, and one of them indicated that this was an issue for her, that she had had problems with getting back and forth and missed not being able to get home more often.
When asked what they didn't like about Dickinson, one student replied that the food was an issue, and on the day that we were there the selections weren't great. But they were at least average for college food, and there are enough options on campus to get by. We saw lots of students with brown bag "grab 'n go" lunches sitting outside on the grass since it was a nice day.
