Wander around Dickinson and you’ll see a large number of red Adirondack chairs scattered across the campus.

Sometimes it’s a single chair a student has moved to a quiet place to work alone. Other times they’re in twos and threes where a couple of students have spent time catching up on The Daily Show. The red chairs are not only a school tradition; they also represent our strong sense of community. And it’s that type of engagement that allows our students to comfortably take a seat anywhere.
