Elizabethtown College Reviews
Attending Elizabethtown College was my greatest decision. They are well-known for their Business, Engineering, OT, Biology, and Biochem departments. While at Etown I had the opportunity to play a DIII sport, seek help from professors to succeed in class, serve as a tour guide and tutor, and engage in Christian fellowship on campus. All I would change is to update on-campus housing, which Etown is working on anyway over the next few years!
I am a freshman and have not taken any classes yet. However, I have had many orientations online and I feel the college has done an outstanding job. The Staff is so welcoming and organized in how they set up the day. From this experience, I know exactly what to expect. During this difficult time with COvid, I feel as though Elizabethtown has done an excellent job of reassuring us that we will have the best experience possible. I will be taking most of my classes online and feel that the college will do a good job in providing the best possible experience and incoming Freshman could have.
Elizabethtown University is a very friendly place with a thriving community around its borders. People always have a cheerful smile on their faces, especially when you can not find your way around on visitation day! Partying is minimum to none so sleeping isn't a problem around student homes. Professors look forwards to seeing you after class. To top it all off, everything is walking distance away!
