    Gettysburg is very expensive and it looks extremely intimidating at first. However, the financial aid staff is very helpful and will work with students to help find them ways to afford Gettysburg. You get so much more than classes out of that money though. Our Center for Career Development will work one-on-one with students to help get them jobs as soon as they exit college and get internships while they're in school. They teach networking workshops and frequently host employers on campus for interviews. Plus, the alumni network of Gettysburg is so extensive and when people leave, they take a piece of Gettysburg with them in their hearts. Alumni love hiring graduates and a lot of alums will credit the alumni network with helping them get their jobs.
