Just over two miles from campus sits a unique cultural and educational resource for Dickinson students, faculty and staff—the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC). Our ROTC students are often invited to the monthly and quarterly lecture series, which includes the opportunity to dine with lecturers as well as take classes and explore other educational experiences. Exhibits at The Trout Gallery have been enhanced thanks to artwork borrowed from the USAHEC. In October, a class studying Italian design and fine arts visited the USAHEC for a talk with a curator in the Conservation Facility focused on Italian posters from World War I. Our students have served as interns at the center, and the USAHEC has been a part of Dickinson’s Homecoming & Family Weekend festivities through guided tours.
Next time you’re in town, check out what the USAHEC has to offer, and see some of the collaborations firsthand. Opportunities available include:
The U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, located at 950 Soldiers Drive, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit the USAHEC website.
