I'm Jesse McDonald, an associate director of admissions at Dickinson. As a regional counselor, I have the great pleasure of working with and getting to know students from Michigan, North Dakota, New York, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Wisconsin and West Virginia.
Although I was born in Missouri, Pennsylvania has always been my home. I grew up not far from Carlisle and frequented the area often. One of my favorite times each year was seeing the bright red Adirondack chairs out on the Dickinson lawn - it meant spring was finally here!
Aside from the beautiful campus, I was drawn to work at Dickinson because of the college's dedication to a rigorous and practical education. Having been a teacher prior to working for Dickinson, education is a priority for me and I believe Dickinson provides one of the best curriculums for college students. In addition, Dickinson is a leader in sustainable and global education, which means students are challenged to think about the greater questions that they will carry with them forever as lifelong learners.
