THIS IS GETTYSBURG COLLEGE

THIS NICE CAMPUS is on a 200 acre site next to the famous battlefield. In fact various Gettysburg College buildings were used by both union and confederate forces at times. The building pictured certainly was not there in the 1860's, however.

ATHLETICS

THEY HAVE probably one of the most unique yet appropriate mascots of any college in the nation; they are the "bullets". GC is an NCAA Division 3 school, meaning there are no athletic scholorships. However, Student-Athletes certainly can and do have academic scholorships.

A STATELY BUILDING

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS USED FOR BUT IT CERTAINLY IS AN ELEGANT OLDER CAMPUS BUILDING.

There are about 2700 students at Gettysburg College.
