Review of Gettysburg College

My review

The Good:

The best thing about Gettysburg is how close-knit the community is and how involved we all are. Everyone plays a role on campus - whether it be Greek life, the theatre department, athletics, or honor societies. There are hundreds of different ways to get involved and something for everybody!

The Bad:

The worst thing is probably the lack of diversity. We take a lot of heat in regards to our 5-10% minority rate.

Would I do it again?

Yes, There are so many shows I would love to be in, so many classes I would love to take. Four years really just isn't enough!

About the reviewer

Went to Academy of American Studies - Long Island City, NY

Currently a Junior

Favorite class is Historical Methods 300 - never learned so much in my life!

Favorite professor is Michael Birkner

Favorite activity is Theatre

Another awesome thing is The brand new athletic facility!

Study Hard? Pray? Donate Money? To apply early decision - that way, if you're really sure Gettysburg is the school for you, you have a higher chance of getting in and getting better financial aid!

I wish I knew What was - cheap textbooks are a must.
