Hello and welcome to Dickinson College! My name is Sarah Masland-Fatherree, and I am an assistant director of admissions here at Dickinson.
Growing up in Carlisle and as a child and grandchild of Dickinson alumni, the college has always played an important role in my life. At an early age, I saw firsthand the many benefits of a liberal-arts education, and I can say with great confidence that this exposure to the Dickinson community had a profound impact on my life.
I began my professional career at a large advertising agency in New York City. After absorbing as much as I could from the big city, I chose to return to central Pennsylvania (home sweet home) to continue to develop my career in marketing with work for clients such as The Hershey Company.
While I enjoyed my time in each of these positions, I had the desire to work for an institution with a deeper and more significant mission in which I could be fully invested. This desire continued to grow and ultimately led me back to Dickinson, where I now have the opportunity to promote the many distinguishing characteristics of the school that is so near and dear to my heart.
As your regional counselor, I am here to help you learn more about Dickinson’s distinctive qualities, including our comprehensive approach to a global education, the importance of pragmatism in our liberal-arts curriculum as well as the unique historic qualities of our community. I have an acute understanding of what you are going through during this phase of your life and will work closely with you to determine if Dickinson is the right fit!
Thank you for your interest in Dickinson and good luck as you embark on this exciting journey!
All the best,
