Affiliated with the Church of the Brethren, Elizabethtown College is a private institution in south central Pennsylvania. Elizabethtown confers degrees in 56 academic fields of study and offers 100 minors and concentrations. With a focus on principles of peace, non-violence, human dignity, and social justice, the Elizabethtown campus is home to The Center for Global Understanding and Peacemaking which creates programs for non-violent international conflict resolution. As part of the college’s orientation program, all first-year students participate in several Elizabethtown traditions such as the First-Year Walk and Induction ceremony.
Elizabethtown College is a school that feels like home. There are so many ways to get involved and meet people on campus that there is never a dull moment. I love Elizabethtown because of the excellent academics, wonderful fellow peers and staff members, and the opportunities it provides to succeed!

Etown is a small, rural, liberal arts school where students can really get to know each other and the professors. While the small size limits the spread of majors offered, I think the sense of community that everyone gets from the small size is really valuable. The professors and staff really care about the students and there is much to be gained from small groups and class sizes.
