“I can’t say enough about how good I feel about Dickinson and the education I received and the people that I shared that with. Dickinson is making good decisions and doing the right things, and it’s nice to be able to support that with a gift that makes a difference in students’ lives.” — Gretchen Ernest Brigden ’89
