The teaching staff is really supportive, for the most part, and are there to help. My advisor, personally, is one of the beat and she really set me up for success with my classes. She was able to let me know the classes I needed without confusion or discouragement. With her help I was able to get everything I needed to enter the Nursing Program in the right time frame! I wouldn not want to attend any other college.

The best thing about Gordon is the beneficial tuition fees because, it is one of the lowest costing schools to attend in the state of Georgia. The things I think Gordon could improve on are the guidance counselor's ability to reach out to students. I believe if Gordon had counselors/ advisors that actually wanted to help their students they would go out of their way to make the time to get in touch with them and, that would help may students graduate at the rate they wish to.
I love that the campus is really small and quaint and quiet. Everything is so beautiful when walking to class. The only thing I would change is the disposition of the professors. Many are really happy to be teaching, which shows, but many are also obviously unhappy and take it out on the students. I have heard several students refused help in math classes, when they obviously need it, which really scares me as a new freshman.
