Gettysburg is a national college of liberal arts and sciences located in the world-famous town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Our 2,600 students are actively involved in an academically rigorous and personally challenging educational experience. With an average class size of 18 and a student-to-faculty ratio of 9:1, everyone plays a role. At Gettysburg, learning often means doing-doing everything. Students engage in cutting edge research, study across the globe, and serve the community of Gettysburg and beyond. There are no bystanders here.
Gettysburg is a place of variety and diversity, a community where every student has the chance to stand out, take responsibility, and lead. In addition to leading more than 120 student clubs and campus organizations, "Gettysburgians" are mindful of their responsibilities as global citizens. Nearly 60% of the student body pursues at least one of the College's extensive study abroad programs, and many become involved with Gettysburg's Center for Public Service.
Gettysburg inspires students to be great. From the very first semester, when almost all new Gettysburg students take an intensive First-Year Seminar, students analyze, discuss, debate, and present. They often collaborate and conduct research with the College's faculty, and they leave Gettysburg prepared to make discoveries, inspire others, and lead lives of impact.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
