One of the best ways to figure out which seminary is right for you is to visit campus. You'll get to meet current students, faculty, and staff, worship with us, learn from seminary professors, and imagine what it might be like to spend the next few years learning and living in the community.
We have several ways for you to visit campus. First and foremost, we encourage you to attend The Weekend. This new kind of discernment retreat is a chance for you to spend intentional time wondering how God can use you to serve the church and the world. You'll be invited to wonder, imagine, and learn through worship, both ancient and new; GETT Talks, styled after the popular TED Talk format; small group conversations; hanging out with other participants, students and their families, faculty, and staff; and hearing and sharing stories. The cost of The Weekend is just $25, and includes lodging and meals.
We also offer individual visits, where you can have one-on-one conversations with Admissions and Financial Aid, sit in on a class, and have conversation with current students about life at Gettysburg Seminary. To schedule an individual visit, please fill out a Visit Request Form.
Just like all of the ELCA seminaries, we offer travel scholarships, lodging, and meals for all guests visiting our campus. We hope you'll come and see what Gettysburg is all about!
