Elizabethtown College Reviews
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!
I love Elizabethtown College. I study music there and all the professors in the music department the staff that I have encountered are amazing. Overall, it is a great school. However, the financial aid program is not great. They do not provide you additional money to purchase textbooks and accessories. The out of pocket cost is very high. I chose to commute because I could not afford to live on campus. For my spring invoice, I had to pay around $1,000 without living on campus and any meal plans. If I added in living on campus and a meal plan etc., my invoice (or out-of-pocket) cost would be over $7,000. When my financial plan came down, it looked great. That was why I picked Elizabethtown College. But I was let down when I received my invoice and my out-of-pocket cost. E-town is a great and amazing college, but I would reconsider if you will be a able to pay for the invoice that your financial aid does not cover for you.
I really enjoy it here at Etown and all it has to offer me as a student! As an athlete, I got to make a ton of friends from all different sports teams. On campus, there are two gyms that can be used by students, along with exercise classes around campus weekly. The college provides students with games and activities, some including bingo, movies, and shows. Etown also has so many clubs every student can join.
