    All freshman students should try to join a club or organization to get involved on campus. These clubs provide a great support network and can allow students to meet a great deal of new people. Gannon provides opportunities for trips to New York City. Students can head to Presque Isle Park when the weather is nice for miles of beaches. The bayfront provides a lot of activities such as kayaking, fishing, miniature golf, and restaurants and shops. The Erie Otters hockey team and the Seawolves baseball team both have headquarters in Erie, so students can easily walk to their home games. In the winter, there are not a whole lot of activities to do in Erie, unless you travel to nearby ski resorts. For students who are 21, there are plenty of bars within walking distance of the campus. Gannon puts on an annual homecoming dance which is a lot of fun. There is also the homecoming parade, in which lots of clubs put together floats, banners, and dances. Fraternities and sororities compete for the titles of best dance, best float, and best banner. Lots of hard work and time goes into creating the show. Students who get involved on campus tend to have a much more positive experience than students who do not.

    In the summer it is fun to walk around the older neighborhoods and look at the old mansions. The bayfront is within walking distance, with a mini golf course. With your ID you can take the bus anywhere in town for free.

    Gannon's Student Night Club and Activities Programming Board works hard to ensure the students are well entertained on and off campus at a low budget. From movies, cookouts, comedy acts, poetry readings, and Rec Center activities, there is at least one social activity going on everyday, a lot of times even more than one.

    Erie is a great city. Lots of entertainment (beach, mall, etc,). Located down town where something fun is always going on.

    Gannon is right next to down town Erie, so there are little shops you can go to that are convenient. There are also restaurants down town that are not that expensive and taste pretty good too. The mall is only a 15 minute car ride away. The peer is about a mile away, so it is easy to walk to the light house and be by the water. There is a mini golf area near the peer as well. Presque Isle is also a car ride away, which is a fun place to go when it is warm. There are other things on or around the campus to do as well.

    We are in the middle of the city so there is things to do like the movies, or we have sports teams like the otters, or the bayhawks. There is always something to do around and off campus.
