Come Visit

Congratulations on your acceptance to Gettysburg as a member of the Class of 2021!

As an accepted student, you are one step away from becoming a Gettysburgian and we are confident that spending some time on our campus- attending classes, going to lunch, meeting with professors, and getting to know our dynamic student body- will help you to take that final step.
