Community Living is comprised of the following teams
Elizabethtown College is a residential campus, which means students live on campus all four years. National data demonstrates that students who live on-campus have higher GPAs, report greater connections to peers and staff, and are more likely to graduate on-time when compared to those who live off-campus. More than 80% of our 1,900 students live on campus in residence halls, townhouses, apartments, and on-campus houses. Our Residence Life team is ready and excited to support you in and out of the classroom.
Office of Student Activities (OSA)
OSA provides opportunities for students to engage outside of the classroom. Whether it is a social engagement such as BINGO or comedian, or helping connect students to Clubs and Organizations, OSA is here to help students make meaning out of their time at Etown and to remind them from time to time it's ok to take some time to have fun.
We want students to graduate with confidence, experience, and opportunities to lead. We explore ways to champion students as they identify their strengths and how to effectively lead teams. Collaborating across campus, Residence Life and the Office of Student Activities are supporting Student Life's Blueprint program, which helps students make meaning out of not only their academic pursuits, but also those found outside the classroom allowing for deeper praxis.
Student Rights and Responsibilities (SRR)
SRR ensures that we are all upholding our mutual agreements as members of the flock. We also recognize that a part of growing and developing is to sometimes make choices that run counter to our values and beliefs. When this happens, SRR provides students with a process to reflect, restore, and re-engage with their peers in healthier and more productive ways.
