Now that you’ve been accepted, what comes next?

Schedule a visit

The best way to learn about our campus is to visit and see it for yourself. Talk to our students, faculty, and staff. They’ll tell you what makes Gettysburg so great, and you’ll find out how you can do great work, too.

Orange and Blue Accepted Student Visits give you the chance to be a Gettysburg student for a day.

You have the option to:

  • Attend an information session for accepted students
  • Eat lunch with current students
  • Tour campus
  • Observe a class in an area of your interest
  • Meet with an admissions counselor

These visits are individualized for each student—if you are interested, please schedule at least 3 business days in advance!

Get Acquainted Day is a Gettysburg tradition for accepted and enrolled students and their families to visit campus.

On this day, you’ll be able to:

  • Meet your future classmates
  • Learn about clubs and activities—and even sign up to get involved!
  • Enjoy lunch at Servo
  • Meet your future professors and learn about majors that interest you
  • Find out about high impact learning opportunities

This celebration highlights the unique spirit and enthusiasm of the Gettysburg community. Learn more and register online.
