What drew you to Gettysburg College? Well when I came to visit, I felt like Gettysburg would be a good fit for me socially and educationally. However, before I got the chance to visit and stay overnight, I was told about Gettysburg College from Philadelphia Futures. Philadelphia Futures is a college bound program affiliated with Gettysburg and they introduced me to Gettysburg.
What do you appreciate about the IRC? I appreciate the support that it provides. For example: all the IRC first years have to meet with Dean Curry for weekly visits. I don't know about everyone else, but I needed those meetings and they helped a lot in my development as a student here. Also the relationships that develop not only between all of the students that use the IRC but also with the faculty. I have gotten to know most of them very well and really value their friendship.
