Review of Gettysburg College

Rating: StarStarStarStarStar_gray By: Erin H., Alum Posted: September 22, 2010

My review

The Good:

Wonderful sense of community, small school, small classes where professors actually care about and are invested in their students. Beautiful campus, excellent academics, good financial aid (academic scholarships), amazing study abroad program, good campus facilities, helpful career center, lots of clubs and student activities to be involved in (sports, music, greek life).

The Bad:

The rural location

Would I do it again?

Yes, I absolutely loved my college experience at Gettysburg and at times still find myself wishing I could go back! Gettysburg provided everything I needed to grow exponentially during college -- I was supported and challenged by wonderful professors, made amazing friends, had incredible experiences and I would do it all over again if I could!

The night life is Based on Greek Life

Every student at this school needs a laptop / facebook

Most students spend their Saturday nights Drunk at Fraternity parties.
