We strive to make your transition to college a positive one where you get your questions answered and have mentors to guide you throughout the process. Our goal is to welcome, support, and challenge every student who joins our community. Our combination of new student orientation (summer and fall), First Year Seminars, faculty advisors, and peer mentors help our students become familiar with Etown and form relationships with fellow students early in their college careers.
There are so many opportunities to take advantage of at Etown - from student clubs to living-learning communities. Ultimate Frisbee? Anime? Improv? We've got it all (and if we don't - you can start a club). Explore campus life at Etown; we want you to love it here as much as we do!
You've paid your deposit, now what?

Students and parents will receive communication from the Orientation team during the spring and summer. Parents, please be sure that your student provided your email address in their applicant portal. If they didn't, they can complete the Family Information Form to provide that to us (this form can be found in their applicant/status portal). To receive ongoing communication (after orientation) from the College's Office of Marketing & Communications, please sign up at the Parents website - E-Newsletter icon.
Take a look at the options listed on the side; you may find the answers you're looking for. You can also use the search box on our website; it is full of information. Feel free to email email@example.com with any questions you have.
At Etown, we encourage you to...Be yourself. Develop your skills and knowledge. Invest in your talents and passions. Get out of your comfort zone. Serve others. Impact our world.
