Discover Dickinson: Summer Preview Days (July 12 & 26, August 2, 9 & 16)
For over 240 years, Dickinson has been committed to educating and preparing citizen leaders who create change in the world. A mission of this magnitude begins with a focus on the individual student.

This preview will include a campus tour, student panel, academic session, light lunch in our dining hall, and one-on-one opportunity with the admissions staff.
Registration will be available soon.
