It's academically challenging but so rewarding.

I wouldn't change my choice ever. It is an amazing school with immense opportunities. The professors and students are open and welcoming, and I have yet to meet a professor who does not do his or her best to help their students if asked. Both academically and socially, Gettysburg is a welcoming and incredible school.
