No Substitute

Faculty share their thoughts on Dickinson's distinctive approach and why you should come see for yourself.






Hear from faculty about our distinctive approach—then come see for yourself

You can browse the website, flip through the brochures or chat with an admissions counselor at a college fair, but there’s no substitute for visiting campus to get a true feel for Dickinson. And when you’re here, take advantage of that time.

“You have to go to a class, or more than one,” says Associate Professor of History Matt Pinsker“You have to see how classes interact in person. There’s nothing that substitutes for it.”

That’s right, our faculty want you to engage with them when you visit campus. Don’t just sit in on their classes; stop them afterward to talk more about the topic that was up for discussion. Our faculty members are an incredible resource, and they want to share their knowledge, their viewpoints and their passions with Dickinsonians and prospective Dickinsonians. 

“We look forward to you coming with your talents and your ideas and your enthusiasm and your energy—because that’s what we thrive off of,” says Associate Professor of Music Amy Wlodarski.

Come see for yourself. Our fall open houses are excellent options, but we also have visit opportunities year-round.
