graduated from the 5 year program for OT at etown.
Generally, OT, business, and education are the best majors at
etown as far as quality.
Overall, elizabethtown is
a good school; granted it is not for everyone.
include: Very nice library, good food, friendly professors who know
your name and are very approachable and willing to help,
good small class sizes, nice students, many opportunities for volunteer
work or studying abroad, small enough to walk to class
easily, and safe.
Drawbacks: Not much going on in
the town itself, you need a car so you can
go to Harrisburg, Hershey, Lancaster, mt. joy, etc., on the
weekends. Also, it doesn't have the “best” reputation academically for
programs other than the ones I listed above. That doesn't
necessarily mean those programs aren't good, but the reputation just
isn't there yet.
They are really trying to bring up
the quality of the school. They bring in good guest
lectures, they've redone a lot of the dorm areas and
other buildings. They have improved the number of activities available
for the weekends. Every year the school gets better.
advice: If you want a small school where you will
know almost everyone, have small campus, live on a pretty
campus, you're interested in serving the community, and aren't a
huge partier...this is a good school.
If you're mostly concerned
with having a city-like atmosphere with lots to do in
the town and on campus, if you want larger classes/more
people, or if you're a huge partier who wants to
drink and go clubbing all the time, this isn't the
school for you.
