Additional Information

Every school has a motto. You might see it
carved in stone over a doorway, or read it
on a mug in the bookstore. Our motto, Educate for Service, is a
little different. You won’t just read it. You’ll
live it. We look after each other—feeding
the hungry in soup kitchens, tutoring local
children over several years of elementary
school, and serving in community-based
projects. But it also means that we consider
the repercussions of the choices we make in
pursuit of our life and career goals. It means
that our graduates are a force for good in
the world. Service is never a requirement
at Etown. It’s a privilege.
