On Saturday, April 14, nearly 1,000 visitors arrived on campus from 25 states plus Washington, D.C., and three foreign countries for the Admitted Student Open House. The students are part of the college’s largest applicant pool in history, and many attended the program to help make their final decision about where to attend college. Other students have already committed to Dickinson but came for the opportunity to experience their future home firsthand.

These students and their families explored campus through several tour options, heard from college administrators and student panels about what makes the Dickinson experience distinctive, snapped photos with the Red Devil at a customized selfie station, collected their official class T-shirts, enjoyed lunch in the Dining Hall and connected with professors during an academic fair. Many families also stuck around after the official open house was over to attend home athletics games, take in the current Trout Gallery exhibit, shop the bookstore and explore downtown Carlisle.
