It’s been happening for generations—since 1832.
The Gettysburg Network is a powerful one—comprising more than 30,000 alumni around the world. It’s woven through the fabric of for-profit and nonprofit corporations and startups; across the country in cities like New York, Washington, D.C., Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, and Denver; and in six continents.

As Gettysburgians, we are united in our pursuit to Do Great Work. That passion is apparent on campus and through the impact our alums make out in the world. This sense of purpose connects generations—creating a web of interconnectedness that extends a lifetime.
It’s not only your fellow alums who will be there for you. Gettysburg College professors, coaches, career counselors, staff, and family and friends of Gettysburg grads will forever be a part of your web.
