Gannon University Reviews
Gannon University is a beautiful university. Everyone, including the staff and professors are outgoing. Gannon is a roughly small campus, so there will never be a time where you walk from building to building without seeing someone you know. Gannon gives great leadership opportunities through multiple programs they hold throughout the year. Gannon also provides a great travel program for students to give back, and learn about other cultures and countries they might be interested in. The classroom size is about 20 students, which I enjoy because I am not overwhelmed by 100 people in a classroom. The professors at Gannon are very passionate about what they’re teaching. They also care about every student in their classroom. Gannon offers a beautiful library on campus that people value especially during finals week. Gannon also offers a huge rec center for all students. There is endless amount of equipment, and a huge gym that is also open to students.
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.
Gannon is such a pretty school. I am a nursing major and the staff is great. They have helped me so much transitioning from high school to college. When I went for orientation everyone on the campus was so welcoming and excited for me and all the other new incoming students to be there. It was super hot out and they still made sure to keep a smile on their faces. I am rooming in North hall and the hall is beautiful. There is a good balance between the boys and the girls which is good. I struggled a little bit with the financial aid process. I called very frequently and each time if no one answered, I left a voicemail and within that day or the following day, my call was returned and my questions were answered. I felt that, that was really nice because I wasn't sure what to do and they were all so helpful. Overall, I haven't had a bad experience at Gannon and I genuinely love the atmosphere as a whole.
