Dickinson Community Organizations

The Object

What makes any community is the organizations within it. Dickinson Community has been blessed with many outstanding organizations. Below is a list of each organization, with a brief description provided by its president or coordinator.

The Libby Tucker Academic Center

The Libby Tucker Academic Center is Dickinson's academic resource center and study lounge located in the basement of Rafuse Hall. It is open Monday - Thursday from 8 PM - 12 AM. The lounge offers a good study environment and houses many helpful reference books. In addition, the Center hosts events such as academic advising sessions, college bowl, and study breaks during finals week. There is test bank made up of tests donated by residents of the community, a computer with internet access, and books available for check out. A great deal of effort has been put into making this a comfortable and usable environment...so check it out!

Questions about the Academic Center can be forwarded to the Academic Vice-president of Dickinson Town Council or any of the individual hall AVPs.

Dickinson Community Players

D.C. Players is Dickinson Community's very own student-run theater company. The group is comprised of a myriad of students including die-hard community actors, various theater majors and the all too common physics or biology major with a repressed passion for the stage! And not all members are Dickinson Community residents.

They stage four productions a year - a straight play and a musical every semester. Every production occurs right in the comfort of Dickinson's own dining hall and every show is affordable.

As well, the DC Players grew to include the Pappy Parker Players, a comedy improv group. If you like the Comedy Central show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?", you'll love the Pappys!! Energetic and entertaining, the Pappys are a great expansion to the DC Players and we're proud to have them as an extension of Dickinson Community. The Pappys have recently gone out on their own and we wish them the best!

The Darkroom

The Darkroom is a full service photo development lab housed in the basement of O'Connor Hall. Through the support of Dickinson Town Council, the Darkroom allows people the chance to experiment with black and white film development and photo production. Residents can use the facility, chemicals, photo paper, and development equipment at no cost. Although the facility is very basic and it may take one a while to get the hang of the process, the Darkroom is a great place to learn! Appointments can be made by contacting the Darkroom Coordinator.
