Gannon University Reviews
Review Gannon University
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.
This college education (as a Biology major) was not worth what I paid for. The professors in the Biology department were a hit or miss -- don't get me wrong, there are a couple professors I could name off that were fantastic, but I can only count those professors on one hand. Made some of the courses more difficult than classes needed to be. Gannon tries to weed out students late in their secondary education career with the intention to require additional semesters on top of the 4 years required for an undergraduate degree. A great example of this is only offering certain classes every other semester/year. I would highly recommend students to look somewhere else, because if I could do it all again, I would be anywhere but Gannon University.
My initial decision was not to attend Gannon because of the inter-city campus and their Criminal Justice program (while reputable) was not as renowned as that of Mercyhurst. However, I ended up selecting it after all because of the considerable scholarships they offered me, and on my first day I fell in love with my university. The classes are interesting, the professors are engaging, the students are friendly, and I feel like I belong. Gannon has become my home in many ways, and I would not change my choice if I could.
