Pennsylvania Travel Restrictions

Virtual Visit Options

Information Session

All students are welcome to register for a virtual information session. We offer both regular information sessions as well as specific regional information sessions. Please invite others in your household to join you and bring your questions!

Register for a regional information session

What is the difference between a regional information session and a regularly scheduled information session? Regional sessions will allow you to meet the counselor who is assigned to your area and will be your primary point of contact throughout the admissions process. (Note: Regions are based on the location of your high school.) Both sessions will provide you with a great overview of Gettysburg College.

Student Panel

Student panels will allow you to connect with three of our current students to discuss all aspects of life at Gettysburg and to get all of your questions answered!
