1 College Sophomore

Diversity: Very little diversity, however, the college is working to fix this.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The chinese place on Market St. isn't too bad. Wouldn't go near the diners though.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There is an obvious divide between athletic students and non athletic students. Most people there are either really artsy and musical or into sports.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The party scene at Elizabethtown is exactly what you expect coming to a small private school in Lancaster County. Since there is no greek life, and only one bar in town, the majority of the parties occur in privately owned houses off campus. Around the beginning and end of each semester, there are typically more parties than in the middle or during midterms. There will usually be a keg or too, some bp. Doesn't get too crazy.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am the first in my family to go to college in the United States. Because my parents and I were learning as we went with my applications for Elizabethtown College, it was difficult to sort through and organize the necessary steps to applying for financial aid. It took a lot of time filling out information, but eventually I was able to get the aid I needed.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Kinda of hipster, athletic, school-oriented, partiers

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Very good with giving out scholarships

5 College Junior

Athletics: The cross country and track teams are amazing!

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Honor code is taken very seriously

Elizabethtown College is quite a wonderful school if one can appreciate a smaller and more personal atmosphere. The faculty and staff at Etown really care and make great efforts to ensure students’ comfort and success. Most everyone is friendly, and the college just feels safe. Students don’t have to think twice about leaving a purse or expensive phone on the table in the cafeteria; they know that everyone will respect that property. That’s the type of community feeling that embodies what it’s like to live and learn at Elizabethtown College. It’s not 100 percent safe or nice, as every place has its problems with crime and drama, but the people at Etown put a lot of effort into making it the greatest college experience.

There is always something happening, some event or occasion that the College supports and funds in order to make the area not quite so dull. Etown realizes it’s not a party school, so it makes an effort to provide entertainment that the students will really enjoy—popular comedians, musicians, movie showings (with free popcorn), concerts, game nights, and more.

Most students would definitely come to Etown again if they had a second chance. They may get bored with the area at times, but a little boredom is a small price to pay for the level of care and commitment that the college is willing to put into their educations and future career successes. The smaller class sizes and qualified professors just make it easier to get the most out of your education. It’s pretty easy to have a sit-down talk with a professor or career counselor, and they are more than willing to provide links or phone numbers or connect students with some of their contacts. As long as you put effort into your education, they are more than willing to put effort into helping you.
