3.34 Average Rating
Gordon is a good way to start off as a freshman for those who do not obtain a high gpa or nervous about college in general.It isn't that big of a school .However, Gordon is not so much as an easy school but it can be very challenging.In addition, Gordon offers a preview of what a University could actually be like.
Mitchell from riverdale, GA
Overall for a junior college Gordon is a 8 the people are nice, campus is beautiful, and professors are helpful. They could really use some work on the food, its not the best. I also wish the fees would decrease but we all know thats not happening.
