I am a sophomore in Studio Art major. I
decided my major after I came here so it turns
out Dickinson is not really the best place for my
major. The art department professors are quite nice and helpful,
but if you are looking for the top training could
prepare you a job afterwards, you may be careful for
your major choice. I also tried to take different classes
in different fields during the frist two years and I
feel the chemistry, English, and International Relations(maybe there are more
but I did not take any class) are quite good
major choices here.
As a International
Student, I am very happy about living in the community.
There are some International Students from different countries so I
could meet people with different culture background. Also, I
learned more about American culture since the majority students are
Americans. There are five sororities so if you want to
make friends and go to parties you will find your
life here. However, the Greek is quite time consuming if
you want to study or having a rest during weekends.
I went to parties in my freshman year but I
seldom do that afterwards. Because the school is too small
and you see all same people in parties and in
class... which is not fun... and my English is not
very good which makes me feel difficult to assimilate.
If you have a car, living in Carlisle is
not horrible because you can go anywhere for weekends. If
not, the weekend is going to kill you. Or you
might just spend more time studying, as your parents expected,
because you are too bored...
Anyways, hope it helps!
