Elizabethtown College is a small, friendly, and safe school in a small town, and it really gives students a strong sense of community.

Describe the students at your school.

They are very supportive and friendly.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't be pressured by what other people are doing. In the end, where you go or who you go with does not matter; you make your own college experience. If you want to succeed, then you must put the time and effort in, and work for it. Alternatively, if you want to be more popuar and have fun while still being prepared for the working world, it's up to you to make that balance happen. No matter where you go, this is true, so don't think going to an Ivy league school is the only way to be taken seriously, or vice versa; don't think that just because someone got into a really high-ranked private school that they're automatically better than you. Everyone is different and has their own strengths. Just go with what your strengths are. Don't worry about anything else. In the long-run, you will be happier if you are true to yourself. Don't try to be something just because of the money or because what your parents want you to do, etc. If you are true to yourself, this is enough to carry you through the toughest times.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit plenty of schools to figure out what kind of school you want to go to, and be sure to do an overnight while you're there. Check out the food, make sure you'll want to eat it every day for 4 years, because eating bad food for 4 years is not fun at all. Figure out how much money you are able to spend and figure out what you can afford. When you get to school, make sure you balance your time. Do well in your studies, but make sure you spend enough time making friends and having fun because college has the potential to be the best 4 years of your life, so make plenty of memories and make them last!

What's unique about your campus?

The size of the school is definitely the best thing. The professors are much more able to get to know each student and with that can help them better succeed both in the classroom and on their career path.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is driven to succeed and wants to focus on getting a good degree with a good name behind it, someone who wants a good career in their future.

It is boring, fake friendly school surrounded by farms and nothingness.

The level of security- all students feel safe to walk alone at night and leave their belonging around campus. They know no one will do anything to them or their belongings.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would say to them to remember that the college is a business. They have friendly students give tours and overnights are with friendly people. If you are a high schooler looking, more times than not the students on campus will be nicer than they are. the college is out to make money and have good marketing tricks to get you to come to their college

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Think long and hard about the cost of your education compared with the availability of your major: don't go to an expensive private school when you can get a liberal arts degree most anywhere. Graduating with a degree in education and $80,000 in debt isn't worth it. State schools offer excellent programs for a fraction of the cost of their private counterparts.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Very little racial/ethnic diversity even though they claim to be a prestigious international business school.

The people are really welcoming and friendly. They all seemed to be really into the school and enjoyed being here.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Go on a tour of the school and do a stay over. It will give you the best experience with seeing how you feel about actually being there. Don't be afraid to make lots of new friends. Sometimes the ones you make at the beginning of the semester aren't the best ones for you, and you may feel lost. By having other friends, you can find where you fit and really enjoy your time.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Finding the right college may seem like a daunting task, but don't get too overwhelmed. There are hundreds of colleges and universities out there, and each cater to a different crowd. Be sure to identify colleges that will match your needs. Think about what your priorities are for your education, and what characteristics you?re looking for in a school. Consider cost, location, size of the student body, strength of the curriculum and availability of extra-curricular activities. Use sites such as Collegeboard.com to compare. Staying over night at a prospective school is the best way to see if it?s a good fit for you. Once you decide on a college, be sure to immerse yourself in a variety of activities and take advantage of everything they offer.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who needs constant stimulation and things to do. This school is sorta in the middle of nowhere

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would suggest talking with students who are not being paid to give tours or represent the college. They will be able to give you a realistic idea of what the college is really like. They can give you both sides of the story whereas college employed students may only present one side. My advice to students is to really think about what YOU want out of college, not your parents or anyone else. College is about gaining an education to enhance career opportunities. You have to be true to yourself and really figure out what you plan on pursuing after college.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have stayed overnight prior to making my decision. This would have prepared me for the culture of the school.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The town is not very college friendly. Things close early and there are not many things to do nearby. Students also resort to drinking on the weekends, and for a student that chooses not to drink or be around people who drink it is sometimes very boring and frustrating.
