4 College Junior

Campus Quality: I love the campus, it was one of the things that made me choose E-town, the dorms are smaller than most, less variety than most

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: As far as uniquness, I can't really think of anything at th moment

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The library is really nice but can get crowded. The other study areas on campus are nice. I like the Blue Bean (a cafe like area). Some buildings are old and need work.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The school is small so the smaller programs at the school are really nice because majors get individual attention. Even general classes don't usually have more than 30 students. It is really great.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: There is always something to do.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The campus is beautiful and very well maintained. Etown takes great pride in having manicured gardens and lawns. Most of the pathways are lit by old-fashioned street lamps, giving the campus a classy tone. The college is also settled in a residential area, so the streets are quiet without the hustle and bustle of the city. There really isn't much to do on campus, unless student groups have organized events. Luckily, there are events almost every week and weekend. If students really want entertainment though, they tend to head off campus.

The weight room in Thompson gym is a little outdated, but the college has recently been renovating a lot of its older buildings. The Body Shop, a smaller gym located under the Jay's Nest, was recently renovated and now contains more, and newer, elliptical machines and other workout equipment. Some of the dorms are a little old and could use some improvements; however, Etown is constantly making renovations and accepting requests for improvements in dorm life. The High Library is very well stocked, and if a student can't find a book or an article immediately on hand, the college is a part of an inter-library loan system with select colleges. A student places a request to have a book or article sent to Etown, and it arrives within hours or few weeks at most, depending on what the student orders and what time of the semester it is.

Coffeehouse on Campus
Blue Bean Café in Brossman Commons. Coffee is also available in the Jay's Nest, the food retail store, and in the Marketplace, the main dining area.
Movie Theater on Campus
The college activities club, SWEET, frequently offers showings of not-yet-released movies during its SuperSweet weekends. The showings are usually held in Gibble Auditorium with occasional outdoor movie nights in the Dell.
"Green" Initiatives
There are paper, plastic, and glass recycling bins in every building. In Nicarry, there is also an old cell phone and ink cartridge recycle bin. Etown also uses a waste pulper in its cafeteria. It pulps up leftover food, which then is transported to a local farm and converted into cleaner energy.
Favorite Things To Do
The Bird Cage is a popular place to hang out. It has a public Wii system, a few board games, and a TV. There are pool, ping-pong, and foosball tables in the Bird Cage, as well as in the common room of every dorm. Generally though, if a student is looking for entertainment, he or she hangs out with friends or goes off campus. There isn't much to do on a regular basis at Etown, unless a student group has planned events for that week.

Clubs and Organizations on Campus
Some of the most popular clubs include SPARC, SWEET, SIFE, OSA, the Etownian, Vocalign, K9 club, and Emotion. SWEET is by far the most active, as they plan the majority of student events around campus. It is their job to entertain the students, and they take it very seriously and try to have something planned each week. A lot of students participate in at least one organization, whether it is a club or a job. Even if one doesn't want to be a full member, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer to help out once in a while. Starting up a group isn't difficult either. One needs to find an adviser and a few members, create a mission statement, and then fill out a registration online, and the college will officially recognize the group and help with publicizing and funding.

Did You Know?
  • Etown has a great advertisement system for its events. Banners hang from the balconies in Brossman Commons and posters cover cork boards throughout all the academic buildings. What's really cool is that the college also sends out a calendar each month with planned student events for each day. It outlines movie days and times, guest speakers and comedians, and other campus events. And it's free.
  • In the first few weeks of the fall semester, the college hosts a club fair in Wolf Field. Clubs can set up a table for a few hours in the afternoon, and every student is welcome to stop by and gather some information or even sign up if he or she feels so inclined.
  • In the High Library, there is a tower room on the third floor. It's said to be good luck for couples to kiss while standing on the oak table, positioned exactly in the center of the room.
