My daughter and I plan on being there. Hoping it doesn't start at the crack of dawn as she has a school dance the night before...

    My family and I plan on going. Even though we live only 80 minutes away, we might stay at a hotel the night before and get a feel for the night life. Although I here there isn't much to do off campus, but it's a small town after all.

    dancingphlanges, I think 'not much to do' depends on what you want to do. There isn't a huge mall (although there is an outlet mall that the college runs a shuttle to), but it IS a tourist town, so there are a lot of restaurants and small shops and such. Interesting town just to walk around. And there is a theater, and then all the stuff that happens ON campus. I think it's a pretty busy community.

    Get Acquainted Day starts at 9:00 AM registration (Convocation is at 10:00 AM) but earlier arrival gets better parking! I believe over 500 families are expected. There will be lots of folks to guide you around campus.

    There's an accepted student reception at the Attic (student night club) -- drinks and snacks -- at 3:30 PM and a separate program for parents where the staff and several members of the Parents Advisory Board will be present at the same time.

    If you have an iPhone download the Gettysburg College "app." Phone, and web links as well as a real-time campus map.

    It's an exciting day!
