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.
At Dickinson, active learning happens in the classroom and beyond. From first-year seminars to research, study abroad, fieldwork and performance in the arts, the academic experience is rich and immersive.
The Division of Student Life supports a rich and varied program of residential programs; clubs and organizations; internship, employment and volunteer opportunities; cultural and diversity initiatives and recreational and leisure programs for our students.
