The Gettysburg College Class of 2017 is here! This morning, hundreds of first-year students arrived on campus, embraced their family and friends, and settled into their rooms in residence halls Stine, Rice, Paul, Patrick, Hanson, and Huber.  For the College’s newest Gettysburgians, it’s the first day of an unforgettable four-year journey!
