Dickinson’s incoming class of 2019 is already making an impression
by Lauren Davidson
With three application deadlines down and one to go, and with applications tracking 11 percent ahead of last year, Dickinson’s admissions counselors are getting to know some impressive future Dickinsonians.
Inspired by the applicants, the counselors have compiled a list of 19 notables already enrolled in the class of 2019 through Early Decision. They include:
- a nationally ranked rock climber
- recipient of the Maryland’s Most Beautiful People volunteer award
- a history buff who has visited 100 battlefields in 25 states and nine countries
- and the founder of a nonprofit that collected more than 2,600 books for economically deprived children.
Also among the newcomers are activists in combating human trafficking and homelessness and scholars who conducted fieldwork in an archaeology dig in Tel Aviv, studied sharks in the Bahamas and researched obsessive-compulsive disorder at Johns Hopkins University.
In August, these incoming students will join an impressive student body at Dickinson that includes: EPA-GRO scholarship recipients
; the founder
of Dickinson Science Magazine
; the founder (at age 16) and president of Jules for Schools: Building Schools for Kids in Need; Dickinson’s all-time leading scorer
in men’s basketball; the college’s first-ever first-year female athlete to earn
the coveted McAndrews Award for Athletics; one of 36 people chosen to participate in Core18 Leaders Lab
, a fellowship program for Jewish social entrepreneurs; and a guest of President Barack Obama during his 2014 State of the Union
as they share the full list of #dson2019 notables, and note that the final deadline for applications in the Regular Decision
pool is Feb. 1.
