Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Most of Etown's students are academic types, though there are plenty of jocks. The relationships among students are great. It is extremely rare to see altercations in public, and conflict is not tolerated within the dorms. If there are problems, the RAs and campus security are more than willing to help correct the situation. It is a small campus, so it's important to everyone to maintain a friendly atmosphere. Therefore, everyone wants to help the students and ensure that they are happy with their situations.

There are more women on campus than men, so the dating scene is very competitive. Most people enter the college with pre-existing relationships, so the dating scene becomes even more difficult. The college is a fantastic place for creating close friendships, but it is not conducive to a good dating scene. Generally, students are not promiscuous, and this behavior can generally be avoided easily depending on the type of students with whom one parties.

Social Scene
Because Elizabethtown is smaller, the student community becomes pretty close. A lot of the students are outgoing and are involved in multiple organizations and clubs. On campus, students like to hang out in the Jay's Nest, the Blue Bean, and in the Bird Cage (a game room). Off campus, there are a few favorite places to visit. Everyone loves to take the occasional trip to Hershey park to ride the Chocolate World ride. Conewago Coffee and now Folklore Coffee & Company are popular hangouts, too. Students also frequent TJ Rockwells, an excellent restaurant a quick drive from the college. There are also numerous parks within walking distance and downtown Elizabethtown.
Hookups or Relationships?
A lot of the students come to the college in existing relationships. The trend is that most relationships on campus are between a student and someone from outside the College. Relationships between students on campus tend to be hookups. This doesn't happen a lot, and there are plenty of relationships between Etown students, but the dating scene is not very large.
Dress Code
There are people of many interests on campus. From the Amish dress to Gothic dress, it's here on campus. Just be sure to wear Etown colors whenever the college is playing against Messiah.
Did You Know?
Each spring semester, certain student groups hold date auctions with Elizabethtown College's most eligible bachelors to help raise money for charity.
