Business Day and
Elizabethtown hopes you and your parents are able to join us on Saturday, February 2nd for our annual Department Day and Scholarship Competition.
During this time, you'll be able to interact with faculty, alumni and current students to learn why Elizabethtown College's Business Programs "Stand-Out in the Crowd." You can learn how our outstanding outcomes, extensive offerings and opportunities, and new initiatives in career development and placements can help you meet your career and personal needs.
If you attend, you can compete for one of the ten scholarships with awards starting at $1,000 per year. All but one of the scholarships are renewable for four years if a student maintains a 2.75 GPA or better. If you have already received an Elizabethtown scholarship you are still eligible to compete for additional financial support.
You are also encouraged to consider an overnight stay on Friday evening, February 1. Each visiting student will be hosted by a current Elizabethtown student. This presents the opportunity for you to experience, first hand, the Elizabethtown community. (NOTE: Deadline for overnight registration is January 18)
