Virtual January Term (J-Term)

January 3 - 14, 2022

Gettysburg College’s Virtual January Term (J-Term) provides students with free, hands-on programming over the winter break. Each program is designed to build upon classroom learning with crucial college, career, and life skills.



The J-Term features dynamic offerings created by Gettysburg’s most distinctive programs, including the Eisenhower Institute, Center for Public Service, Garthwait Leadership Center, and Center for Career Engagement.

Our programming is intentionally divided into three exploratory tracks that will help students in any stage of their Gettysburg experience to translate their aspirations into action and increase their personal, professional, and societal impact upon graduation. J-Term competencies focus on networking, leadership, well-being, design thinking, communication, and more.

All sessions are completely free of charge. The sessions are not for academic credit.

Exploratory Tracks

Students are encouraged to participate in tracks that align with their class year, however, they are welcome to register for any session that piques their curiosity.

  1. Early College Career
  2. Mid-College Career
  3. Late College Career
