The Etownian, Elizabethtown College’s student newspaper, is published weekly during the academic year. The paper is one of the oldest news publications in Lancaster County, beginning production in 1904. Since then, the Etownian has grown to be named one of the top college newspapers in the country, being awarded “Best Newspaper” in our division (four-year school with fewer than 5,000 students) at the 2013 Apple College Media Association Awards.
Our new presence in social media allows us to reach a level of interactivity that was formerly impossible only publishing in print. We encourage you to contact us, either through our Contact form or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please discuss, comment, and send us your genuine feedback. We are looking forward to helping create a truly engaged community.
