What is your overall opinion of this school?

I graduated in 1972. Had no problem finding jobs and I am grateful for the education I received at E-Town. Having said that; I see where the Board of Trustees have made some bad decisions as of late. They should have never decided to cut tuition. This sends a negative signal to prospective students and their parents/supporters. It smacks of desperation and denotes a lack of faith in the future of the college. The other decision was to hire an individual to run the college as President who lacks the experience and know-how necessary to attract prospective students to enroll and stay enrolled. She is basically an administrator with little or no academic background. So what can the college do going forward? First and foremost they need to institute an aggressive recruiting program. They must send out ambassadors to the surrounding cities and states to attract as many secondary school students as possible. The college should compensate these recruiters if necessary. Second, they should not reduce tuition ever again! They should remain in the competitive range with other colleges in the tri-state area: (PA/MD/NJ). Third, they need to attract more foreign students. E-town has to change they way it does business to survive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved visiting the campus last spring! The grounds were beautiful and the buildings seemed to be well kept. I am excited to see the new dorms that are under wraps. I was able to sit down with a chemistry professor for a solid half hour, where we talked, and he gave me a sense that he was passionate about his job and enjoyed teaching his students. Elizabethtown is currently number one on my college applications list.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to Etown because I loved the intimacy of the small class sizes. When I visited, the professors made a huge effort to get to know me as a student and acknowledge my concerns and needs. I found the same to be true during my freshman year at college. My classes were, for the most part, incredible. My professors were so dedicated to my education and I felt like a succeeded greatly. However, over the summer the college has announced some changes academically that worry me. They will be cutting the theater program after 2020 which seems to defeat the purpose of going to a liberal arts school. I am worried for the future of Etown as it struggles with funding and enrollment. I hope they pull it together because right now, Etown is on a downward spiral.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school. I am treated with love and care every day I am there. I met new friends that I know will last forever. People, who I do not even know, will say "Hi" to me and ask "How are you?" when I walk past them on or off campus. The school is geared toward helping its students have a successful future. Also, students are given many opportunities to express their other talents or interests through clubs and extra-curricular activities. As a first year, I am glad to choose Elizabethtown College.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the atmosphere of this small community! No matter where I go, I can always be sure to see someone I know. Integrity is a huge value on our campus. Students can leave their belongings on lunch tables or in the library, and they know that no one will touch their personal property.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm a Sophomore and Elizabethtown College is really the only college experience I have, but I love it. The teachers are wonderful and most often the class sizes are small. The largest class I've ever had was 36, but only because it was a core course which is required. I absolutely love Elizabethtown. Everyone who goes here is nice and it's small enough that you'll almost always see someone you've seen before. Professors are easily accessible and absolutely wonderful and if I had to choose again, I'd still choose Elizabethtown.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Elizabethtown College because just walking throughout campus you will always encounter a smiling face. Even when you might be stressed to the max, which at times is the reality at college, there is someone you can talk to who will encourage you and give you that boost of confidence that will help you persevere. There are also lots of great dogs to be seen on campus, I'm not sure how much more you could ask for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Elizabethtown College is a great school for people who don't want to feel overwhelmed by the vastness of a state school. E-town is small and you know everyone. It is important to make solid friendships because you will know everyone and if you go through a breakup or friend change (like people do), it is hard to bounce back and find someone new.
