When I was researching potential topic ideas, I ventured into Carlisle with another classmate. For the most part, we were well received by the community. However, we encountered a facetious Carlisle inhabitant. Upon arrival, we were mocked for being Dickinson students and our mission to study the town was trivialized. Although this only happened once that day, it has been the experience of others as well.
Why is there such a tension between the community and the college? What can be done to pacify the situation?
