Now at a large flagship state school in the mid-Atlantic for graduate school. This has really given me the chance to appreciate how friendly and intimate the Elizabethtown Experience. While the big school has it's positives as well- I think that overall Etown was a great environment and I loved my time there!

As a recent graduate with 1 year of work experience, I can tell you that my experience at Elizabethtown was phenomenal.

The classes are small, and they are much more interactive than at other schools. Most of my classes had about 20 to 25 students in them, and I loved that aspect. I learn so much more in small classes, since you actually get to talk and ask the professor questions pretty regularly throughout a class.

The social life was great because I really got to know a lot of people in my class, and it is the kind of school where you will always see people you know when you are walking somewhere on campus. I also liked the weekend scene, because most of the kids stay on campus (very few go home) so your friends are always around.

Etown isn't for everyone, but then again each school has their specialty. If you're thinking of going, definitely stay on an overnight visit. I used to be a host and they really give you a better idea since you end up spending a whole day going to classes, staying in a dorm, etc.II still keep in touch with 2 of my professors on a regular basis, and many of my former roommates do as well.

ELizabethtown is a great college to go to if you want the experience of attneding school where everyone will know your name. Your become real close very quickly with the kids in your peer group, part of the orientation process, and then make a lot of friends if you do sports or join clubs and things of that nature. There are many oppourtunities for all types of people to have fun outside fo the classroom, SWEET, Studnets Working TO Entertain E-Town, organizes activiteis such as movies, trips, and dances almost every other weekend. I am disappointed to see more and more students going home on the weekends because compared to last year the campus is a little bleak at the end of the week. The cause of this decline in students remaining on campus is mainyl caused by a severe negative change in campus secutiry. Campus security has recently and over the last semester outstepped their boundaries in many ways, specifically regarding alcohol; thye claim to be their to help us, but instead students feel liek the campus security officers are "out to get them", treating them more like children, than adults. A major issue is also the fact that campus security ahs written several article in the college paper, the Etownian, in which they falsified information and posted staged pictures to make the studetns look bad in the eyes of others, particularly ampus administrators. The student community howvere is constantly attempting to chagne the attitude of campus security towards us, and thus their attitudes change weekly towards college parties. Besides all that Elizabethtown is a very nice cmpus asthetically and creates for a very social and happy environment.
