Gordon College Reviews
Review Gordon College
Gordon has been a mixed experience for me. The academics are amazing; I absolutely love the professors! They all seem to care deeply for both what they do and their students. Rather than get a TA to do their work for them, they really invest in their students. It can really make a difference how the professors feel about teaching, and Gordon has that difference. Unfortunately, the current administration has a listening issue. The president makes lots of decisions without consulting staff or faculty, then does not want to deal with the consequences. Overall I recommend Gordon, if you don't mind being mad at the administration all the time.
If you come from a small, conservative town, Gordon College may strike you as an interesting mix of spiritually challenging and socially familiar. It's small, which is its strength especially when it comes to professorial involvement in student's lives. However, because it's a dry campus and there is so much conflict between the large crowd of liberal thinkers on a proudly conservative campus, it can feel like its own little planet in desperate need of some updates.
In my freshman year at Gordon College, made many friends during freshman orientation. Live in Ferrin Hall, great community. Love most of my classes. Work-study has been great, working part-time on campus. Like the small campus, short walk to classes, Lane Student Center, and academic buildings. Enjoy working out at the Bennett Field House. Attend chapel services, great Christian community here. Love visiting with friends, seeing Boston or Maine on weekends. Feels like home.
