Fun Facts

  • Freshman orientation at Gettysburg College is held at Stine Lake, which isn't a lake but a large quad that was previously soaked with drainage problems.
  • Gettysburg College's Pennsylvania Hall, the school's oldest and most central building, was used as a field hospital during the Civil War battle with which the school shares its name. Many stories allege that the soldiers who died there still linger...
  • Another one of Gettysburg College's many resident ghosts is the Blue Boy, an orphan who some believe froze to death outside Stevens Hall—the dorm he now haunts.
