Gettysburg College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
I adored Gettysburg. The sense of community is so strong and the professors are great.
Gettysburg provides a valuable education and college experience. Although they have made strides to increase diversity on campus (both socio-economic and ethnic) I feel the student body is still overwhelmingly white from upper-middle class and above. Greek life dominates the social scene.
Academically, the program was rigorous and engaging. Socially, I was out of place not being from the upper middle class.
I loved Gettysburg. The community is tight knit and continues to support you post-grad. I couldn't have had a better college experience and wouldn't change any of it.
The school was a good fit for me. It was a small liberal arts college where students were very involved on campus and the faculty was engaged with the students. If I could go back, I would major in history again. I picked it because I was very passionate about the subject matter. At the end of the day, focusing on a major that you are passionate about is what matters. You are going to study it for 4 years so you should at least enjoy it and not think about whether it will find you a job later. Also, get involved on campus! Some of the most relevant work experience I had in college was through volunteering and college organizations.
