Etown is great if you are an Education,

Jul 16 2007Psychology
Etown is great if you are an Education, Business, OT or Engineering major. The psych professors are really awesome and very helpful - as are most other departments. I would only decide not to go if I had the choice because of the price. The class sizes are great - 20 to 30 at MAX. Most upper level classes have anywhere from 15-20 which is perfect for a learning environment.

Classes here are ok--nothing spectacular, though

Jan 15 2005Social Work
Classes here are ok--nothing spectacular, though. The profs are generally kind of dull, except for a few. The core here is so frustrating, and the professors who teach these classes generally don't care much (especially if you're a freshman). After freshman/first year (to be PC), life gets sooo much more boring at the college. There are only so many times you can take sitting around watching movies or going to "parties". The social life is kind of juvenile--mostly gross beer at the quads or apartments. With regards to the administration, they make A LOT of mistakes! The dorms are horribly dilapidated and it's hard to switch buildings or roomates. Too many freshmen being admitted has caused a giant hassle all over campus. If you're from a very small town, don't want to be challenged much, and enjoy living in a white, lower middle class bubble, come to Etown.

Etown is a great place to study if

Oct 21 2004Political Science
Etown is a great place to study if you are not an out-going type of person. The campus is in Elizabethtown, where you can only find a hotel, a church, barber, pizza places so generally speaking it's a (very) small town, the nearest bar is 10 mins by driving. So it means if you would like to do sg else than staying on campus you definately need a car. Professors at the Political Science Dep. are streching you, giving you lot of assignments and they really welcome different views that of their own. Campus is nice, during the week you have to study a lot, on weekends you can go to one of those parties in one's dorm/apartment room, friendly people, lots of fun, if you are a laid back person who loves to chill, watch Shrek 2 on a laptop, drink a couple of beers this could sound perfect for you. There are some 80 international students, and their community (and the whole college) is fascinating. My experience was that professors are paying specific attention to you, you are not like a product in a huge factory (cf. state univs). Lancester and Harrisburg is in 20 mins and there's a lot to do if you are not satisfied with the the social life on campus. Because of the near Hershey Foods factory (M&M), the campus often smells like chocolate...
