Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • A job on campus is a good thing to have. It can provide an income (meager though it may be) and can be a great way to network with staff, students, and faculty.
  • Athletics are not a major focus of the school. Do not come to G'burg expecting to find Division I teams and Division I school spirit.
  • If you don't have a car, make friends with someone who does.
  • Independents do not have to live at the mercy of the Greek system. While it takes perhaps a little more effort, it is quite possible to have an active social life outside of the fraternities. In fact, it is perhaps even a boon to be independent because you can then enjoy all the benefits of the frat parties with none of the costs or responsibilities. I repeat: Greek life is far from the be-all-and-end-all of campus life at Gettysburg.
  • Though you may not think studying abroad is important, you will when all your friends are finalizing plans to South Africa and Greece.
  • While Baltimore and Washington are within "driving distance," it's not the kind of thing you can do on a whim on a Thursday afternoon. Going to one of the cities takes planning, a budget, and most importantly, a vehicle.
