    I enjoy being at Elizabethtown. There is always something to do, and something going. There are many student run events. This college has a great sense of community and friendliness. Many students can leave their personal belongings and do not have to worry about theft. This school is not only about education, but integrity and respect.

    I've met some pretty amazing friends here, due largely to the Peer Group program, which matches a group of incoming first years (usually between 14 and 18 students) with two upperclassmen. The kids in the group have a class together, that's just the Peer Group, call the First Year Seminar. The bonds I formed with my Peer Group are really strong, and of the 15 other kids in my group, I still talk to eight on a regular basis, and I consider three of them to be my closest friends at Etown. It's really easy to meet people and make friends at Etown, and I love that about it.

    I quickly met my closest friends at Elizabethtown shortly after arriving on campus. Since the campus is so small, it is extremely easy to get to know people--the first-year program allows students the ability to form a close-knit community right away. Since classes are small, I have found making friends easy. There are plenty of clubs from which to choose on campus and the campus is within easy access of Harrisburg, Hershey, and Lancaster. Some students do go home for the weekend which can be a downer, but my friends and I remain on campus almost every weekend and manage to have a good time.
