Where have they been, and where are they going? In the days before graduation, members of the class of 2018 shared the experiences that meant the most to them during their time as Dickinson undergrads and their plans for life beyond the limestone.
Some, like Carol Fadalla ’18 (psychology) and Sarah Benamati '18 (theatre arts, music), appreciated the opportunity to form close relationships with faculty members and with fellow students. “Dickinson is such a nurturing, loving community of scholars and great minds that just want to make the world a better place,” Benamati said.
Others pointed to the chance to study abroad; travel across the community, country or world to study a topic in depth; get involved with community service; or explore new areas of interest, inside and outside of class. “There’s always new opportunities and new areas of interest to branch out into,” said Patrick Harchik '18, a double major in international studies and Russian who’s also a member of the ROTC and the football team and will teach in Bulgaria next year as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant.
“That’s the beauty of a Division III school,” said fellow student-athlete Aturo Adkins ’18 (international studies), who balanced a high-impact semesterlong internship at the U.S. Army War College’s Peacekeeping & Stability Operations Institute (PKOSI) with his college-football career.
