Gettysburg College’s January Term (J-Term) provides students with practical, hands-on programming over the winter break. Each program is designed to build upon classroom learning with crucial college, career, and life skills.
The J-Term features dynamic offerings created by Gettysburg’s most distinctive programs, including the Eisenhower Institute, Center for Public Service, Garthwait Leadership Center, and Center for Career Engagement.
Our programming is designed to help students in any stage of their Gettysburg experience to translate their aspirations into action and increase their personal, professional, and societal impact upon graduation. J-Term competencies focus on networking, leadership, well-being, design thinking, communication, and more.
