In the Gettysburg College community, Gettysburgians are passionate about not only their own work but also others’ great work in the world. With its network of more than 30,000 alumni at the core, the lifelong connections to this College and to each other live on in the stories we tell and the support we provide to one another in lifting up those stories.
From mid-February to mid-March, our community took to social media to engage with and reflect on these stories and more:

Math and democracy: How Prof. Campbell Hetrick aligns her work for the state of Pennsylvania to her teachings at Gettysburg
In September, Mathematics Prof. Beth Campbell Hetrick, who is passionate about the intersection of math and voting, was invited to serve on Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s Redistricting Advisory Council.
“This is exactly why I love Gettysburg so much for my daughter. The application of theoretical concepts to real world needs and issues is baked into everything. I wish I could go back to school and learn this way!! So exciting to have a professor who not only makes her discipline come to life but who is making a real difference in her applied research as well.”
