Good for average students, who don't mind living in the middle of nowhere.

Elizabethtown College has some things going for it:

Elizabethtown College has some things going for it: the faculty on the whole seem very knowledgeable and have generally been helpful and friendly toward individual students, the dining services are usually above average and put in a lot of effort to keep the students satisfied, and it has quite a few decent extracurriculars such as academic clubs and athletics. Unfortunately, the attitudes of the students are this college's major detriment. The social life on campus is nearly nonexistent and parallels that of high school; it is basically centered around tightly-knit cliques and athletic groups. Quite a few of the male students (particularly the athletes) behave like a pack of jungle monkeys who have not matured mentally past the eighth grade all while conducting themselves as if they are God's gift to the college, while some of the girls act like spoiled drama queens and refrain from interacting with anyone outside of their immediate cliques. Consider yourself warned: if you are not into athletics or are not the type that constantly kisses up to other students, you will find the social life here even more pathetic than your average high school.

Etown is a good academic school,you will most

Etown is a good academic school,you will most likely come away satisfied with you education. But lets be honest, that is not what matters for most people, even if you think it does.

I had a blast my freshman year, as almost everyone i knew did. But then towards the very end of Freshman year something changed; campus security started to come down on the students a little harder and suddenly students were worried about receiving more "points." It sounds insignificant but it really changed the mood of the entire campus. Half my friends left by Sophomore year, because the school was no longer as fun, or pleasant as it was at first. The non-drinking issue would be fine if it was not for the fact that there is little or nothing else to do. The town has a few places to eat within a short drive and there is a pretty good mall about 20 minutes away.

The drinking situation is worsening; the number of places to drink are also dwindling. There are a few off campus party houses left The Green, The Track, O-street, The Ranch, The Farm; you will become familiar with these. Although the latter two just recently got purchased by the college so they most likely will no longer be party houses. On campus partying is left to dorm room drinking and the occasional Around the World, which will leave a lasting impression.

If the college can bounce back from the depressing 2007-2008 year it will be an amazing experience and will highly recommended attending. Otherwise it will be a depressing last couple years for many students.
