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.
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.
