First-Year Walk, Class of 2026

Thursday, August 25, 2022 at 6 p.m.

The First-Year Walk is a time-honored tradition at Gettysburg College, when students retrace the steps students, faculty, and townspeople took in 1863 to hear President Abraham Lincoln deliver the Gettysburg Address at the Gettysburg National Cemetery.

Come show your support for the Class of 2026!
