5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Freshman year, all incoming students are required to sign a pledge of integrity. Campus theft was at 0% my freshman and sophomore years, showing that everyone takes this extremely seriously. I have never felt unsafe on campus or in the surrounding area and feel comfortable going for runs by myself, even after dark.

Overall Experience: Most class sizes are very small, so your teachers get to know you as an individual and are always available to help you. Teachers provide real life examples and experiences that go beyond simply learning from a textbook

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Elizabethtown has a good reputation, especially within certain careers. This small town school really focuses on community engagement and learning the soft skills that will help you to become successful. I have never used the career center before.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is not great. There are no options in which you have your own room and the bedrooms are small, but it facilitates forming friendships with your roommates and neighbors.

3 College Senior

Athletics: It's a Division 3 school and so most people on campus do not follow them.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Elizabethtown College is a friendly atmosphere with great academics that are reinforced outside of the classroom according to our "Educate for Service" motto. I've never had a teacher who wasn't readily available to offer help when I needed it. It's a small school in a small community, but there is plenty to do if you are willing to drive 20-30 minutes.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Overall, Elizabethtown is a very safe campus. I have never felt afraid to walk by myself outside, even at night, although I do make sure to pay attention to my surroundings. Incidents with sexual assault, alcohol, and other offenses do occur from time to time, but Security always keeps everyone up to date and I think there is much less of an issue here than at many other campuses. Most everyone, even the students, make it a point to encourage safe habits here.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For the most part I have enjoyed my classes. Some have been more stressful than others and I have liked some professors more than others, but overall everyone is very accommodating and all professors have been willing to work with anyone who is having trouble. The classes are generally engaging and sometimes even fun, and everyone gets individualized attention.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not had much experience in this area yet, but I have applied for a few jobs. Career services is great. I have not had a problem, and all of the employers have been mostly patient and helpful when appropriate.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have not had any trouble in my dorm. Most everyone gets along quite well; my room is comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are clean and easily accessible.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As a person who dreaded college, I am happy to say that I am very satisfied by the time I have spent at Elizabethtown so far. The work becomes stressful at times and there are challenges, but everyone is so kind and eager to to of service, including both students and faculty. Classes are mostly engaging; I have learned quite a lot in the last few months, both academically and in the realm of life experience. It has brought me out of my shell and encouraged me to communicate with people. Never have I felt unsafe on campus or in my dorm. Overall, it is just a friendly, beautiful community with much to offer. It may be a pricey school, but it is difficult to find a place that gives so much thought to student safety and comfort. I think it will definitely be worth it in the end.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Elizabethtown is a pretty quiet place and generally safe. Campo responses quickly to calls and is friendly. There have been a few incidents, but I don't know that much about them. It is safe enough that I feel comfortable walking around campus alone and leaving stuff in the study rooms if I have to step out for a little bit.

Athletics: Athletics aren't that important, but intramurals seem fun and well-attended. The gym was recently redone. There is also a pool and a workout place for everyone (athletes and non-athletes) to do cardio, core, and stretching. Yoga and dance classes are also well-attended.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus is small, which I consider a good thing. I can stay asleep until the last minute and still make it to class on time. The professors are also really friendly and more than willing to help students. They take a genuine interest in their students and will notice if a student skips class. There are also a lot of opportunities available to students if they look for them, such as internships, research with a professor(s), and study abroad. The staff at Career Services and the Study Abroad Office are very friendly and helpful. The only downsides so far have been how expensive the college is and feeling that it is a little too small sometimes.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus security is really on top of things and always adresses issues promptly that are reported. They take student safety very seriously.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've only come across one professor I didn't like. The class sizes are small which is great because we get more individualized attention! Don't try to skip class if there's an attendance policy, professors will notice if you skip class!

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.
