What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
Search for that scholarship money, if you can apply to be an A.J. Gordon Honors Scholar, do it. It's a great honors program, but it requires some commitment.
Teresa from Lake Saint Louis, MO
If you still have some time left get involved in community service, because Gordon really looks for students who are willing to be leaders in those areas. If it's possibly try to get you're grades up also, or you could miss out on some really good scholarships from Gordon.
Stephanie from Boston, MA
Visit the Campus!! Gordon was at one point my 4th out of 4 colleges that I wanted to go to. Then I visited and I instantly knew it was where I was supposed to start out my college career.
Samantha from Pike, NH
Get involved with your classmates, join some kind of fellowship, anything to stay involved in your Christian community. I notice that it's the people who don't stay involved in the Christian community that don't end up enjoying it. It doesn't have to be a huge commitment, either. I only had a once a week bible discussion group of three people for an hour, but sometimes, that little bit is what you need to stay grounded in your faith.
Jonathan from Adams, MA
Definitely visit and stay overnight! You see a lot more when you spend the night here.
Ashley from CT
The school will help you out financially but you should also apply for a lot of scholarships.
MA Student
prospective students should certainly visit gordon before making a decision. a visit can make or break a decision, and it is important for prospectives to get a feel for the community before sending in their deposit.
Christopher from Marshfield, MA
there is a lot of work but it is manageable. expect to be busy with work, but don't worry, there is plenty of time to spend with friends and doing what you want.
Christian from Bellingham, MA
prospective students should make it a first priority to engage themselves in all of the activities, tours, and scheduled off-campus activities. both other perspectives and current gordon students want to meet you! don't be shy. take in the new england weather, whatever it may be, and get a feel for campus. you will feel like you already are a student at gordon the moment you arrive on campus!
Brittany from Peabody, MA
Get involved in your community and church NOW.
Alyssa from Schenectady, NY
