Clara Dickson Hall is the largest residential community on North Campus, housing more than 460 first-year students. A large and beautiful Colonial-style brick building, Dickson is centrally located and is right next to a popular sand volleyball court.
Dickson's Residence Hall Director, Faculty-in-Residence member, and student Resident Assistants plan and host plenty of programs and activities for all interests, including volleyball tournaments, an annual trip to Niagara Falls, bowling, brownie nights, picnics in the Cornell Plantations, and a ropes-course challenge.
Dickson Hall rooms do not have air conditioning.
Kit (Christopher) Umbach, Professor (Adjunct) in the department of Materials Science and Engineering, is the Faculty-in-Residence for Dickson Hall and McLLU. He lives in an apartment in the building and regularly spends time with student members of the Dickson/McLLU community.
Associate Professor of Operations Management Nagesh Gavirneni, Assistant Professor of Communication Jonathon Schuldt, Senior Lecturer in Engineering Rebecca MacDonald, Senior Lecturer in Physics Bob Lieberman, Associate Professor of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering Susan Daniel, and Professor of English Satya Mohanty serve as Dickson/McLLU's Faculty Fellows.
