You will learn a lot in the classroom, no doubt about it. But that’s not the only place you’ll gain the skills that today’s employers desire such as critical thinking, communication, writing, leadership, creative problem solving and teamwork. Etown’s strong core curriculum includes a first-year seminar to prepare you for the years ahead, and real-world learning and travel opportunities supplement your area of study.

Signature Learning experiences. GUARANTEED.

Signature Learning Experiences are real-world educational opportunities that challenge you to think beyond the books, go behind the scenes and travel across borders. We call them "signature" experiences because, from student to student, they are as different as you are, and they are what make the Elizabethtown experience different from other colleges.

Education as unique as your own signature. At Elizabethtown College, we don't just challenge you to create and pursue learning opportunities outside of the classroom—we guarantee it. You will have the chance to participate in at least two of our five Signature Learning Experiences.
