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!
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!
The academics Elizabethtown College has to offer, are top of the line. Professors are always willing to take time out of their day to help students understand the material. The dorm life is okay at best, the dorms need renovating and updated. The price you pay to attend the college, you do not necessarily get the most "bang for your buck", but it is close to home and offers me the opportunity to stay involved at home, as well as get a quality education. The neighboring town reminisces of an old western town that was once a booming town, but is now washed and an empty figure of what it used to be. Having to drive 20-30 minutes to get to the closest Walmart, or super center is definitely a flaw to Elizabethtown College.
