Dickinson College was founded in 1783 by Benjamin Rush, a man who believed America needed educated revolutionaries to lead the nation. Less than a week after Dickinson College became chartered, the United States was guaranteed international recognition, making Dickinson the first college chartered in the new country.
Located in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, the college has many opportunities that are open to the public including student performing arts and athletics, special events, The Trout Gallery, the planetarium and nearby Dickinson College Farm. The campus is also known for its Civil War History.
