4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Doesn't really care what you're doing as long as you're being safe.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Campus strictness is fairly average, but consistent. It's strict enough to make you feel safe, but not so strict that you can't do anything.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus strictness is fine. I have no problems with it.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: It's a liberal arts school, so there are certain things that are looked at leniently (alcohol use and protests, in particular), but others that are enforced quite strictly (parking and drugs).

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus isn't too strict because there are certain things that one should already know what to do. Also, if there is a serious case then the school will do what they think is right to keep the campus a safe environment.

The most visible change on Dickinson’s campus in recent years is the alteration of the role of Dickinson Public Safety (DPS). The DPS officers have become focused on safety, rather than on “busting” students who are behaving safely behind closed doors. Dickinson seeks to foster a community of trust and responsibility, with RAs serving as mentors, rather than police officers, and DPS acting as a vehicle for safety, rather than for irrational punishment. That said, some students do still find DPS to be too strict; however, often the students that complain are often those hosting raucous parties or acting inappropriately on campus.

Despite the presence of DPS, the party still goes on at Dickinson. The College is not a hardcore party school, but students do like to get together on weekends and have a good time. Many students party all four years here without a single write-up on their records. Having a write-up, however, is more of an indication of inappropriate behavior than an indication of a Public Safety vendetta.
