Gannon University is absolutely wonderful. The PA campus and the FL campus are so well organized and every single person I've met from Gannon has been kind, caring, and very happy being there.

I like that Gannon University is located in the heart of Erie. There is so much to offer to students both on campus and off campus. Most of the teachers are friendly and helpful when it comes to class and outside of class. One thing I wish would change is the weapons policy. With Gannon being in downtown Erie, it can be very unsafe and scary, even with the police and safety buttons. While at Gannon, there have been shootings, harassment, attempted kidnapping, and much more. I have a concealed carry permit that I use solely for safety. Campus is one of the most important places that students should be able to carry for safety. I wish Gannon would change their weapons policy to increase the safety of their students.
Gannon University is an excellent university that takes students in and gives them the opportunity to grow as a person. It’s faith based values allow for those to practice their faith as well as be engulfed in their studies and be involved in anything and everything possible.
