Gordon College Reviews
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.
Gordon is an amazing, Christian college! The atmosphere is always positive and the people are friendly. I greatly enjoy this college to the highest!
Gordon College is the best place on earth—an inspirational, life-launching training ground but it is also a beautiful destination. Gordon majors on the majors and refuses to divide its students over important but secondary issues. It is so nice to live in this environment.Gordon knows the importance of first impressions made by staff and professors. I have seen so many smiles. The joy here is contagious.
