Etown has about 1800 students and the professors are always so ready to try and make their students even better! I would choose Etown over any other school time and time again. The Office of Student Activities is also great and keeps students busy during the school year and makes the school year exciting!

The professors really care about students learning. The small class sizes allow for one on one with them. The student body is really accepting and friendly. Everyone is just really nice. One of the reasons for not choosing this school would be cost possibly. Without enough financial aid and grants attending can be costly. However the small class sizes and engaging professors make it very rewarding to go to class and learn.
