Virtual Visits

Virtual Visit Options

Note: With increasing concerns surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19) around the country, Gettysburg College has temporarily suspended all campus visit events. This decision was made to support the health and well-being of both our visitors and campus community members. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate any school group or organizational visits for the remainder of the semester. Please continue to check this webpage and your email for updates.

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!

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!
