At Gettysburg there is so much to do and so many aspects to learn, the teachers are all qualified and are some of the best at letting you know what you need to know. If you are interested in an aspect of study, then just keep your eyes open and you can find something that you need to learn about. They have a one of a kind Civil War Era History department that no other school in the nation has for a major and a minor. The school is a liberal arts school, so it may be a bit tougher...

    The professors here are absolutely fantastic and do everything in their power to help you succeed. For science majors, the opportunities for research are phenomenal and you get an extreme amount of hands-on experience with different tools that you wouldn't be able to touch at a large state school. The food, while limited in it's options on campus, is always amazing and the dining center is simply wonderful.

    Just visited the campus last week and loved it! Some parts of the campus are currently under construction but overall it is a beautiful small college campus. Did a triple header info session, tour, and interview (which was highly recommended) all before 2 pm.

    The campus is beautiful but it's currently in construction and the students get slightly hostile in the library towards non-students (one of my dual-enrollment courses went up to campus for research for term paper).

    Gettysburg College is a great school, especially for students who want to get a great education without being thrown into an overwhelming environment. I love the small school atmosphere and I never thought that I would form relationships with my professors, but I have. All of the academic and extra-curricular activities offered at Gettysburg College are wonderful at helping and encouraging students to succeed.

    Gettysburg is a great liberal arts school, especially strong in health sciences, organization management, and political science. The emphasis on academics is balanced out by exciting extra-curricular activities and a solid D3 athletic department, featuring the recent Women's Lacrosse National Champions, and the Men's and Women's Swimming teams, who are perennial powerhouses in the Centennial Conference. Located in a truly iconic American town, this college is picturesque and will always make you want to come back for Alumni Weekend.

    Gettysburg is what you make it and quite Greek. You will have to work academically and socially, but it will be worth it. Do great work.

    Gettysburg College is an excellent liberal-arts school, based on a beautiful campus, where the faculty and administrators actually care about you, the students are friendly and welcoming, and students receive a solid liberal arts foundation. Faculty members are willing to take time to meet with you and take time out of their day to make sure you can keep up in class. Students foster this atmosphere by working to reach their fullest potential and being involved and engaged. Gettysburg is a great place to call home for four years!
