If you want to make a great impact on our school and yourself, join the SGA club; speak for you and your classmates and be an advocate for your fellow students. You can also apply for employment on campus.

Visit all of the dorm rooms, ask students while visiting their opinion on there current room. Don't be afraid to get on a social network or ask what teachers the students perfer. Explore the town there are alot of unique shops, and the town host lots of events.
Clinesha from Atlanta, GA
If you have the time, take a summer class or two each year, they're easier and only last a month. that way if you have a semester with a bunch of hard classes, you can take 9 or so hours as opossed to 15 and still be on track to graduate on time.
Melissa from McDonough, GA
If you're a high school junior or senior, I would strongly suggest that you visit Gordon College at least once in your search of finding the college that's right for you. They have plenty of Campus Visit Days where you can visit and get a tour of the campus, to see if you like the college. Even if you're unsure if Gordon College is right for you, go ahead and apply anyway. If you are accepted, it may help you in the decision of finding your right college. If you decide that Gordon isn't right for you, then you don't have to attend there, but at least you know that you got accepted. That's always good for boosting your confidence, especially if you feel that you didn't do well on your ACT or SAT. This simply helps relieve some of the stress when searching and applying to colleges.
Jill from Locust Grove, GA
My high school teachers have always told me attending college is hard, but after going through the paper work process, I think attending college is the easy part. A simple tip for prospective students: get all paperwork in and make sure everything is filled out neatly and correctly. To make the process simpler, complete the application online, just make sure all information is correct. Do not worry if you will get in or not. Gordon seems to have the reputation of accepting everyone. One last tip: Make the most of your college experience because you only live once.
Shakarra from Zebulon, GA
Don't underestimate the school with how it is called Kindergordon in some place because it still can be as difficult as any other school. I would also say starting off here with the core would be very help financially as well.
Dylan from Thomaston, GA
You Gain the College experience, you gain the friendships and you enjoy the small town atmosphere, what more could you ask. The on campus living is reasonable price with dormitories ranging from traditional, honors room and apartment style living. I advise any prospective student to get involve, join clubs and campus events, and to also make time for studying and hanging out with friends.
Brittany from Lawrenceville, GA
Become friends with your advisor, and make friends in each class. Don't skip (unless you KNOW you've got the material down), and try to stay on top of your work. If you have any conflict, or are struggling, be sure to let your professors know.
Melissa from Milner, GA
Definitely start out here. It will get you used to the rigor and challenges of a large university while not breaking the bank to go!
