Our community came alive on social media when Gettysburg College was featured on “Jeopardy!” and when we celebrated the people who make this place special.
In March, Gettysburg College was featured on “Jeopardy!” in the U.S. Colleges category: “Nine score and 11 years ago, our fathers brought forth in Pennsylvania this school.”
“That was a clever clue!”

“I was yelling at the screen: Gettysburg! GETTYSBURG!!!!”

As the College launched its latest all-alumni survey, our followers shared the names of individuals who made an impact on them:
“I truly appreciate the uniqueness the College provides students to interact directly and easily with faculty. Friends who attended other colleges are often surprised at how much interaction I had with my own professors. The most impactful for me was Prof. Emeritus Gabor Boritt, my faculty advisor, and advisor to the Civil War Club. He not only increased my already significant interest in history, but also helped hone my analytical abilities. Even after college, he provided career advice when I found myself at a crossroads.”

“[Anthropology Profs.] Ben Luley and Kirby Farah’s classes were always ones I looked forward to participating in, and furthermore, I regret only having a single philosophy class with [Philosophy Prof.] Steve Gimbel. Truly irreplaceable experiences.”

The ‘Real Deal’
Gettysburg College Director of International Student Services Brad Lancaster, who is widely known as a “Gettysburg Dad” to the student community, always seeks to create a welcoming environment for international students on campus, from watching the World Cup with them to witnessing Burgburst, an annual student-led cultural event, come to life.
When he traveled to Taiwan after graduating college to teach English, Lancaster, who was featured in the “Humans of Gettysburg” series on Instagram, had gained a newfound intercultural fluency that built his desire to serve as a bridge to fellow citizens of the world.
“Such important work! Thank you!.”

“We love Brad!!! Brad makes the College feel welcoming. When I studied at Gettysburg College seven years ago, Brad was the first staff I met and he was incredible during my four years of college: my first SIM card, first Walmart trip in the U.S., first D.C. trips were all organized by Brad and the international student office. Thank you, Brad!!.”
