Class Correspondents Program

Class correspondents are volunteers who act as a communications liaisons between the college and their classmates. Correspondents are responsible for collecting class notes to be published in Dickinson Magazine. Correspondents' contact information is published in the magazine so that their classmates can send personal and professional updates.

In addition, the magazine staff notifies correspondents of updates we receive via newspapers or other  non-classmate sources and asks correspondents to call or e-mail the classmate for verification and publication approval. The staff of Dickinson Magazine edits notes for style and consistency and may, in some cases, be in touch for clarification.

Dickinson Magazine is published four times per year. A publication schedule with deadlines will be provided to all correspondents.

For more information or to become a correspondent, contact If you currently are a correspondent and find yourself unable to fulfill the duties, please contact us so that other alumni have the opportunity to participate.
