    There is a surprising amount to do at school. There are over one hundred clubs and the ability for students to create their own club. There are various hangout spots on campus, such as the CUB and Junction in the Student Union Building, as well as the Attic, where concerts and alcohol/drug-free parties are held. On the weekends, the frats are open to students- which are a ton of fun. The gym is also amazing. There are student-run classes, such as spin, Zumba, yoga, Pilates, etc. There are two rock walls for students to climb. The gym has a lot to offer other than the machines and weights. Sporting events are fun to attend as well. There is a lot of school spirit, especially for lacrosse games and swim meets. Not to mention, the campus is within a five-minute walking distance of downtown Gettysburg. The downtown area is home to the Majestic, which puts on movies, plays, and concerts. It is also home to the Lincoln Diner, which is a cute little diner that is open 24/7. There are all sorts of shops and restaurants in town, so it is difficult to get bored.

    There are tons of options for fun at Gettysburg! We have a College night club called the Attic that offers parties at night during the week and weekends. Some of them are host provider meaning that you can have drinks there if you are of age, and others are just fun with free food, live entertainment, dancing etc. There is also a coffee house stage that has performers, open mics, a Capella concerts, and comedy nights. In addition there are fraternity parties, movie nights, ballroom dances, swing dances, Christian worship nights, game nights, ice cream socials, you name it! I have not ever been bored at Gettysburg.

    Go on ghost tours, rent a scooter, take a run around the battlefields, see a game, and if you're 21+, there are a lot of fun bars like Blue & Gray where wings and pitchers are student-affordable.

    Party, party, party. Greek life is huge, but the school does a good job having activities for those who wish to remain sober.

    Gettysburg College is nestled in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, offering a wide variety of dining and other options on the town. However, with all of the programming done on our campus, students will rarely have time to go into town and do these things. The Campus Activities Board hosts many events in the Attic (a popular hangout for students) on many weekends. Students also create their own programming with dance competitions and a-capella groups. There is never a dull moment on this campus!

    There are constantly club activities going on around campus which are always fun to join in on. Also, there are a lot of shops and things to see in the town which is in walking distance. There is also a trolly system that is free to students that can take students to the outlet shops, the battle fields, and the movie theater along with a lot of other fun locations.

    Gettysburg may be in the middle of nowhere, but the nights are always packed with activities. The fraternities are always open on the weekends, but the Attic, our campus hangout always has dances and games and activities. The Junction is a fun place to go too, where they hold coffeehouses and other musical events at night. There are three movie theaters in town, and free transportation to those, along with other events, such as Relay for Life and Up All Night for St. Judes.
