    Everyone is very friendly and there is a welcoming atmosphere. However, if partying is not your thing, weekends can be very boring sometimes.

    The more you get involved, the more you get to know people. Everyone here is like a second family. The students are extremely friendly, and you'll know someone where ever you go. Also, being in the middle of downtown Erie, there's a lot of stuff to do, whether it's riding the Erie buses to the mall (free with your Gannon Id!), going to the sports games downtown, seeing a show at the Erie Playhouse, or just hanging out on campus.
