History



■<«< <<<<<<<<<<<<<< * >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Gettysburg College, like most of the older liberal arts colleges of
the United States, was founded under church auspices. It is the oldest
Lutheran college in America, its charter having been granted April 7,
1832. One of the primary objects of its founders was to prepare young
men for admission to the theological seminary already established in
Gettysburg. That purpose has never been forgotten; a number of the
graduates of each year's class enter the ministry of the church. A majority
of its faculty and students are Lutherans, but others are of almost every
variety of religious faith.

The name of the College was originally "Pennsylvania College of
Gettysburg." The name was changed in 1921 to "Gettysburg College."

In its earliest days, the College was housed in a single building, now
used as a private residence, at the corner of Washington and High Streets.
It received from the State a grant of $18,000, but had no endowment.
