College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have Greek Life

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The security is great, and may be one of the best things about this college. It's generally been a safe pace and I have not heard of any thing otherwise.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: People here are very sporty, whether it is competitive or just working out. It inspires me.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: I have never been so cold in my life, but then again I am new to northern weather

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: I am the only black person in 3/4 of my classes. I guess it's okay, I don't feel out of place. I just feel like a person. It's mostly white and there is a large Asian community. The other people groups and colors are few and very far between, but like I said the students are fine and I even forget about color when I am here.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have not heard of one on campus. We are just mixed up, we are all human

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's been okay, but I am still new and there is more to see.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: It doesn't exist. Well, I think there are some who make the best of it but, I mean, there isn't much to do at night here. But I did go to a concert the other night at the giant stadium in Hershey, about 20 minutes drive from the school.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors really care and know what they are talking about. They hired the best.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is a shuttle that goes out every week and students to Kmart where there are several other stores too. You shop for what you need. Campus security will take you to the airport for free, I am from a different state so that's great for me, a taxi cost me $60 last time, before I knew about the campus security. They will even take you to the train station for free.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is a safe campus generally speaking. Dorms are okay, the people are generally friendly. There are good and bad people alike, just like the rest of the the world, but it is a close knit place, and you may or may not fit in right away. It may take time, but that depends. I think, you need to know who you are and why you are here, have goals and that way you are not swayed by what this small population of people think of you or this or that group of people think of you.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking lot for freshmen and sophomores is pretty far away,but it is good exercise I suppose. However, if you are a sophomore you have another closer option that fills up quickly, but I am usually lucky and find a spot most of the time. It's not bad though, and you can always call security if you are coming back to campus late at night and they will make sure they send security people to escort you to your dorm building safely.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have only heard of a few instances concerning safety. I have had no problems with the health center.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is not a lot of Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are always computers available.

3 College Freshman

Weather: A little cold sometimes. Classes are cancelled for even a little snow.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Plenty of diversity, and I have never seen any acts of intolerance.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is nothing special, but I have never had any problems.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not too much usage or peer pressure.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: There is always something to do.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Everything is close and isolated.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not personally know of any Greek life groups or activities at Elizabethtown College.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: It's especially cool that Elizabethtown College allows first-year students to have cars on campus, and it's even better that parking permits are free.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: As a student, you really have to worry about the Resident Assistants before the campus security officers.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Aside from a handful of international students, there is not much diversity on this campus.

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.
