Gettysburg College is a liberal arts college located adjacent to the Gettysburg Battlefield where President Abraham Lincoln made his famous Gettysburg address. In fact, each first year student is required to take a walk across campus to the original site of President Lincoln’s address and hear the speech. U.S. News & World Report rates the college as having “more selective” admissions and lists the school at #46 in National Liberal Arts Colleges. Political science and government, business administration and management, and economics are the top majors among undergraduates.
Gettysburg is almost like a dream. I feel more at home here than I do anywhere else and being on campus makes me smile. I feel really lucky to get to attend this school and am really going to miss it when I graduate.

The food is great and all of the buildings, including dorm buildings are very nice and well-kept. Since it is relatively small, it is easy for teachers to focus on individual students, and they are willing to do so. Gettysburg college is a small school at which it is easy to succeed in a very friendly environment.
