About Gettysburg College

Founded in 1832, the College upholds a rigorous commitment to the liberal arts and sciences in all their breadth and depth. Combined with experiential learning and a drive to Do Great Work, there are no bystanders here. When you study at Gettysburg, you’re participating in traditions predating even the iconic battle that gave the town its notoriety and historical significance. Before the Civil War and thereafter, the college has stood as a beacon of intellectualism and socially responsible citizenship. You can see our values reflected in our mission and our excellence in the proven record of student and alumni success.
