Gannon University Reviews
This school's PA program is great! Teachers are nice and helpful. They are very good at answering questions. You can tell they are trying to make the school a better place to learn. In addition, they have multiple ways of getting involved. The honors program is also something i recommend to all. I love honors classes as opposed to the typical classroom because honors classes are smaller. The only drawback I can think of is the work-study. They do not offer many options on campus. They tend to higher previous students which means there is no way you can get a job on campus unless a student who works for them graduates.
As an international student, I can say that gannon is a very well diversed university. Also it has so many events going around for people from so many different countries and different cultures. The professor and staffs here are awesome and makes you feel home and are very helpful. The security is so good that i can get a ride home from the college live safe app during night hours which makes it convenient for me to use library facilities even during night. The only thing I would recommend is if the college could upgrade the housing and food.
I absolutely fell in love with the campus the first day I got here. Everything is right here and if I need to go somewhere off of campus, we can take the bus for free thanks to the university. I've also met so many great people here on campus and made a lot of forever friends. The professors that are involved in my major are phenomenal! A good bit of them are former government agents and have experience in the field. They offer real life accounts of situations they have dealt with in their careers. It really helps me learn and I love it.
