2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Many preppy, upper-class students whom hail from New England. I found the student body as a whole to be very bland, uninteresting and somewhat arrogant.

The student body is the biggest issue of the college, it's homogenous. There needs to be a culture change in Dickinson, as many students complain about one another.

As far as looks go, it's an attractive campus. People will dress up for class and parties. It's possible to find some great people here, but you need to know where to look.

Guys & Girls: This school isn't fashion forward, no don't expect a bunch of people in unique outfits. Guys and girls are preppy and wear nice clothes that convey their economic status. Lot of Vineyard Vines and LL Bean boots.

Guys & Girls: There's definetely a 'type' of girl that goes to Dickinson which is white and well off but there is diversity and most of the people I have met are very passionate about their interests, which vary greatly

Guys & Girls: Mostly like to party on weekends

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It's kinda preppy overall, but you won't be judged if you're not decked out in Hollister and Vineyard Vines. Everyone's pretty friendly overall, and decently attractive. Relationships happen, but it's mostly a hookup or friends with benefits school.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Dickinson has a very attractive student body—students normally have impeccable physical appearances and are intelligent, as well. The Kline Athletic Center is constantly full of students working out to stay in shape, and Dickinson was recently ranked the most physically fit college in the nation by Men’s Fitness magazine. Students also dress the part—being put together is not just sn option on this campus, which is evident in the moniker of the cafeteria’s center aisle: “the catwalk.”

Like any college campus, random hookups are prevalent, but Dickinson is very small, so awkward interactions with past hookups are inevitable. However, you won’t find a large number of students who have many regrets in this area because people here are usually pretty smart about what they do with the people they’re attracted to. Hookups usually happen between individuals who live near each other or have met at parties or other social events, and it is not uncommon for a regular hookup to turn into a long-term relationship. Overall, it is easy to say that Dickinson has an average amount of promiscuity as far as college students are concerned.

Social Scene
Dickinson students are very social. From frat dance parties to gathering in someone's room to watch movies, students (especially freshmen) love to do everything in big groups. It isn't uncommon to find groups of kids chilling at the Quarry together or watching movies in the dorms on weeknights, and students like to meet for study in dorm lounges and the library, as well. Weekends generally start on Thursday, because students usually need to "hunker down" during the week to get their work done, and kids get together with anyone from their roommates and neighbors in the dorms to people they meet in classes to party.
Hookups or Relationships?
Girls on campus are generally more likely to be involved in serious relationships than guys are. Random hookups are as normal here as they are anywhere else.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
The best way students at Dickinson meet each other is through parties and social gatherings of different clubs and organizations. Dance and themed parties sponsored by fraternities and other groups are common and are generally considered to be fun ways to meet people and/or find a hookup. Many students often become close with their freshman residence floors as well, and it is not uncommon to find seniors living with people they met in their dorms freshman year.
Dress Code
Walking on Dickinson's campus is likened by many students to entering a J.Crew catalog. Dress is generally expensive, preppy, and trendy. For girls, the must-haves include fleece North Face jackets, Seven jeans, bags by Longchamp or Vineyard Vines, and Uggs. Guys wear a lot of Ralph Lauren, Vineyard Vines pants, and button-down shirts, as well North Face jackets. Sperry shoes are frequently seen on both sexes. On more casual days, students often wear sweatshirts, sweatpants, and T-shirts with the Dickinson and/or their fraternity or sorority logos. BlackBerrys and iPhones are common accessories.
