Gettysburg College is a highly selective national, four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences. With a student body of approximately 2,600, it is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania. The College was founded in 1832.
With more than $47 million awarded in financial aid over the last year, over 80% of students graduating in four years, 94% of the Class of 2012 employed or in graduate school within a year after graduation, and an average debt at graduation that’s lower than its peer institutions, it’s not surprising that Gettysburg College made the prestigious list.
The Princeton Review selects schools based on its analysis of more than 30 data points with cost data reflecting school-reported figures for 2013-14. The company also factors in data it collected over the past three academic years from its surveys of students about their satisfaction with their financial aid awards and academic experiences at their schools.
