What Students Are Saying

4.01 Average Rating
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!
Elise from Aberdeen, MD
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.
