“My time at Dickinson taught me how to think analytically and write persuasively, both of which were essential in my career. I think the college is headed in the right direction and want to see  it succeed.”

Dawn RossoDawn Rosso ’74 majored in English at Dickinson, where she learned to think analytically and to write persuasively. Both were essential skills in her more than three-decade career in marketing and market research.

Now retired, she enjoys live theatre in New York City, volunteering at the Princeton University Art Museum and taking classes in music and languages. To recognize Dickinson’s impact on her life and help the college impact present and future students, she volunteers through the Dickinson Admissions Volunteer Society and, with her husband, Mark, has established an endowed gift supporting internships.

“I’ve always felt very positively about Dickinson and my time there,” she explains. “The leadership has articulated a vision and purpose that make sense in today’s world and will, I hope, assure the continuing relevance of a small, coed liberal-arts school like Dickinson.”
