You can also participate in our externship program (week-long job shadowing experience), networking dinners with alums/parents, job shadowing over the winter break, and our career immersion trips (held over the winter break and in May).

Gettysburg has a strong tradition of leadership, connecting back to our founding, as well as our relationship to significant historical leaders like Eisenhower and Lincoln. The GLC’s Leadership Mentors provide several opportunities to learn how to prepare yourself for leadership in college and beyond. We host workshops, retreats, seminars, and other events throughout the year that ultimately help students to recognize their potential for leadership and their responsibility to serve.

Gettysburg is home to 18 Greek Letter organizations. Eleven fraternities and seven sororities reside on campus. The Greek Community at Gettysburg College is based on four standards of excellence: scholarship, leadership, friendship, and service.

Center for Global Education

We work closely with sophomores interested in a semester of off campus study. We help students identify their academic and personal goals and find a program where they can fulfill them. Students from every single major study off campus on international or domestic programs. We have affiliated programs in over 100 countries around the world. Students can study off campus as early as first semester sophomore year and as late as first semester senior year. All students in good academic and disciplinary standing are eligible to study off campus.
