Founded in 1899, Elizabethtown College is a private institution situated in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. The school was founded by members of the Church of the Brethren and maintains its affiliation today. It is home to The Center for Global Understanding and Peacemaking which creates programs for non-violent international conflict resolution. The top majors for undergraduates are business administration and management, engineering, and biology.
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.
Although the price to go to Elizabethtown may seem intimidating, you never actually pay the full dollar shown. Elizabethtown College offers many scholarship opportunities to allow you to attend the close-knit, welcoming community without any added stress. After your first semester at E-town, you'll be recognizing faces everywhere you go.
