I have absolutely loved my time at Etown. The professor are amazing and genuinely know and care about students in and outside of the classroom, People here are so nice and always willing to help out when you need something. Campus is extremely safe and being here feels like being part of a big family. I couldn't imagine spending my four years of undergrad anywhere else.
I think that Elizabethtown College has a lot to offer. Academically, Elizabethtown is an extremely strong school. I graduated from their social work department where I was able to acquire a variety of relevant work and volunteer experience. Professors were readily available, class sizes were small, and the classes were all fascinating. E-town also has a variety of campus social events which are fun to attend. There are also a lot of campus traditions which are very enjoyable. I highly recommend Elizabethtown to academically serious students who prefer to stay on campus and be in a small town environment.
I think it is the perfect school or students that want a close relationship with the professors and want a close knitted friend group, because the college is so small, its perfect for that atmosphere. It also has a plethora of majors and minors so its really easy to major and minor for students that want to do more than just a major but not as much work as a double majoring. It is also in a cute little rural area.
Nice campus. Most classes are capped at 35 students. Friendly and approachable professors.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Elizabethtown College is 73%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself to not bring nearly as much clothing with me. I would also tell myself to get over my shyness because that took me a while once I actually got to this school. Also, it's important to know that trusting my gut is a good idea: from taking classes to making decisions about social occassions, everything needs to be well-thought out, but a gut decision could mean the difference between taking a class that's at an appropriate level, or taking a class you'll actually enjoy being in.
The fact that we are required to take general education classes before graduation.
The best thing may also be one of the worst. . . but you really recognize everyone, so it's very comfortable. It's a small and close knit environment. A group called SWEET- Students working to entertain E-Town also does a great job organizing live bands, comedians, movie nights, and dances for us on Sweet weekends, which usually are 4 or 5 times per semester. It's very easy to make friends!
I wish I had known more about what the classes were like. I was hesitant about my choice at first but after being here a few weeks I was able to see that the classes really are small and the professors are very involved and care about their students.
Elizabethtown College is a close knit community where most students and professors know each other.
Students here like to work hard and play hard, are here for the overall experience and so participate in many extracurriculars and social activities in addition to classwork.
Elizabethtown is unique because it is a small school in a small town and yet has a huge impact on your life. The second you step on campus, you feel like it's your home and it takes every step possible to fullly accomodate its students. It has a great educational system, but it also provides numerous outlets to become very socially involved to help balance out the workload. While it is expensive, in my perspective, the four years of memories it will provide are well worth it.
The cost. I say this because the tuition continues to rise while the financial aid is stagnant.
Someone who likes big city living, large campuses, large classes, and other large city aspects.
I love telling my friends about chocolate days (days when the campus smells like chocolate), how small my classes are, how well I know my professors, how easy the professors are to talk to, and all of the activities I am involved on in campus. There are som many more wonderful things I could say too! Another thing I absolutely adore is the friends I have made since I came to campus, these are the type of friends you make that will be with you forever.
Small Town loving, friendly, upper middle class, athletes make up most of the student body. (preppy)
smelling like chocolate?!
