Welcome to Dickinson! Dickinson's orientation program for new students is designed to facilitate your integration into the unfamiliar academic and residential setting that is college life. Through orientation we invite you to learn about the experiences, opportunities and community that Dickinson has to offer. Keep a look out on the orientation page for first-year activities, news and getting involved in Orientation.
