Congratulations on your acceptance to Elizabethtown College! At Etown, we believe there is no other college that will engage you in finding and pursuing your life's calling, your life's work, and your most fulfilling future like we do. Our students become the influential advocates and changemakers, exceptional communicators and cause organizers the world needs more of.
Throughout today's virtual Accepted Student Day, you will discover how our student-centered culture will help you live your best life.

At Etown, Educate for Service is more than just our motto. That is why for the second consecutive year, we are launching our 'Make a Deposit. Make a Difference.' campaign. Through this initiative, Etown will match 100-percent of all deposits made during the month of February by the incoming Class of 2025. Our goal is to raise $15,000 which will be donated to Elizabethtown-area non-profits impacted by COVID-19. When you're ready, secure your spot and help us make a difference!
The College’s motto Educate for Service was adopted in 1915. Educate for Service expresses our campus community’s belief that the pursuit of knowledge is most noble when used to benefit others.
Hear from Elizabethtown College President Cecilia M. McCormick, J.D. as well as some of our current students as we kick off our Accepted Student Day!
