In the short time I've been at Dickinson

May 02 2014Undecided
In the short time I've been at Dickinson College, I've flourished both academically and socially. I've met some great friends and the professors here are very accessible and definitely know the material they teach and preach. On the weekends there is always something to do, whether it be a sporting event, party or club; you just HAVE to put yourself out there and find it! The campus is gorgeous and so is the town of Carlisle. Although not much to do in town, there are some pretty neat shops to explore and some amazing food places to try. All in all, I believe Dickinson is a great place to learn and live.

I love Dickinson. I think it is grossly underrated.

Dickinson's Archaeology department is absolutely awful

May 01 2014Archaeology
Dickinson's Archaeology department is absolutely awful. I was a major there and am currently in grad school for archaeology. Maggidis and Bruno, the only archaeology faculty, are terrible and did not prepare me at all for my career. Maggidis is a lazy, uninterested professor who teaches his classes that the Minoans sailed to Michigan and mined copper because Indians didn't and couldn't... Bruno has no confidence, knows next to nothing about archaeology, presents blatantly inaccurate information in class, and was a terribly unhelpful advisor. Stay away from Dickinson if you want to study archaeology - there are so many great programs (often hidden in anthro departments, don't rule them out like I did).
