This school definitely has some good things aboutBrightBiology
This school definitely has some good things about it. Among these pros are the food on campus and the small class sizes which enable you to get establish close, personal connections with teachers. However I will admit that this school is not the best fit for me because I feel constantly judged wherever I go. Socially, I have felt very out of place, even though I have tried to get involved in a lot of things. It seems, especially for guys, if you do not go Greek you will suffer socially so be ready to rush when you go here.

Housing at this school is horrendous.Quite BrightComputer Science
Housing at this school is horrendous. They cram everyone into every little space they can and it's clear they care more about making money off us than giving us a comfortable living space. If you want to have a room to yourself, especially before senior year, forget about it. You won't get it. There are a few wonderful professors, but they're few and far between and generally, my high school teachers were better than the professors here. I expected much higher quality with what I'm paying to go here. A small subset of students are incredibly hateful and make anyone who isn't straight, white, and male feel very uncomfortable. It is quite clear that Gettysburg only wants your money. You do not get what you pay for here. Go elsewhere.

Although I am getting a great education hereQuite BrightUndecided
Although I am getting a great education here no question about it. Personally it is not worth the money I am paying. I am an out-of-state student getting very very little money. Gettysburg was my reach school by fair and I feel like I was just so excited to get accepted and loved the campus I enrolled... I didn't think about the majors or anything I am interested in majoring in. Long story short I am in the process of transferring to a larger university to have a bigger variety of majors. I rather not be in so much debt and get a degree in a major I forced myself to take and I was not interested in. If you have a set major in mind and can afford to attend then go for it. But for me it is not worth it.
