            Being a Civil War buff, what's not to like!! New science wing top notch--I'm envious of the new generation.

          • Testimony
            2009-2013, Bachelor’s Degree

            Gettysburg afforded me the opportunity to travel to Singapore, Thailand, The Dominican Republic, San Francisco, New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and many other places in order to pursue my academic and extra-curricular passions and interests. Had I attended a larger university, I cannot see how I would have been able to take advantage of such a plethora of opportunities. I am very grateful for the experiences my college provided me, and I look forward to supporting my alma mater in the years to come.
