Acceptence Letter1170

Class of 2021 acceptance letters are on the way

On Friday, March 17, acceptance letters for the Class of 2021 were put into the mail. The pool was the second-largest in the College’s history with more than 6,300 applications arriving from 46 states and 106 countries.

“This was a fantastic applicant pool to review,” said Director of Admissions Gail Sweezey. “The students were academically talented and demonstrated high levels of extracurricular diversity. We will be delighted to welcome them to campus as members of the Class of 2021.”

Applicants from the Early Decision I and Early Decision II deadlines have already received their acceptances.

Accepted students can share their reactions—and current students and alums can follow the excitement!—on social media with #gburg2021. They can also join the Class of 2021 Facebook group in order to connect with their future classmates and stay up-to-date with the latest conversations.

Other important updates—including information on everything from First-Year Orientation and First-Year Seminars to dining and housing—can be found on the accepted students website.

Enrolled and accepted students and their families are invited to campus Saturday, April 22 for Get Acquainted Day, an annual springtime celebration that offers opportunities to talk to current students, interact with professors from all of the academic departments, tour the campus community, eat at the Dining Hall, and more.

As accepted students prepare to visit campus, they are also encouraged to explore the Gettysburg dictionary, learn more about the College’s traditions, and check out the campus photo gallery.

Founded in 1832, Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences with a strong academic tradition. Alumni include Rhodes Scholars, a Nobel laureate, and other distinguished scholars. The college enrolls 2,600 undergraduate students and is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania.
