I adore Gordon College! It is a wonderfully safe environment, in the physical and mental sense. The class size is conducive to open discussion among students and professors. The professors have regular office hours but are also responsive to email most any time of day. There is a strong sense of community among students that fosters strong and lasting relationships.
I love Gordon. It is a wonderful, high quality school. You are getting the good and challenging education you pay for. The professors are so kind and more than willing to help you. It is a small school so you will see the same people a lot, which can be awkward at times, but they are good people for the most part.
If you're interested in being surrounded by close-minded, uber-conservative, "God's-way-or-the-highway" type people, then congratulations! Gordon College is the perfect place for you. Not the place to go if you're looking to have a good, or even decent time.
I really love it here. It is a very beautiful and save campus with many academic and other activities. The classes are a good size and appropriately challenging. I really feel at home here. The location is not too close to a city but not too far away from anything either. We have easy access to stores and activities outside campus. Faith is also integrated into life and learning here very well.

College can be scary because it is a time when people may be away from home for the first time and figuring what they believe about certain issues while dealing with academics, social life, and a job. If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a senior, I would tell myself to accept how my worldviews would change and that it would be okay. I attend a small, liberal arts, Christian college. Before entering college, I would not have called myself close minded, but I certainly had my stances on certain issues. My freshman year of college, I was exposed to many different views on life and faith. It certainly shook me at first, but then after working through some of the issues I was able to realize that these views held truths to them and I started to pull from those views and adapt them to my views. Changing or adapting my life and faith views was frightening because of the uncertainty, but it has been caused me to grow as a human and in my faith.
Gordon College is an academically challenging, non denominational Christian, liberal arts school full of friendly, loving people.
Gordon College is best known for it's expertise in developing its students toward maturation in intellect, service, love, faithfullness and hope in the Holy Trinity: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Gordon College achieves this through its wonderful chapel program, which centers learning, living and loving around the Christian call to live obediently to God's one and only son, Jesus Christ. Maturation also occurs significantly in the classroom, where the small classes and tremendous teacher-accessibility allows for a vibrant learning environment. Various service trips and ministries compel students to practice service, love, hope and faith.
Being a Christian myself, the best thing about Gordon is its commitment to the gospel. The faculty and staff are commited, faithful, and hard-working. The academics at Gordon are thoroughly Biblically based, preparing students extremely well in their respective fields of study as well as for other areas of life. The education is extensive and thorough.
The worst thing is hard to pin-point. I would have to say the lack of a student union building.Th
Caring Christians who could be a little less high-strung in regards to schoolwork sometimes but overall are balanced people and enjoyable and valuable to be with
Gordon is in a wealthy suburb, but just half an hour outside of Boston. Students can get the quiet campus, and still have quick access to the city. There is free salsa dancing in Boston for all Gordon students at a local club. At Gordon, EVERYONE can fit in.. we have students who are home-schooled and those that went to private, public, parochial, or Christian schools and everyone fits in and finds friends quickly.
A person who desires to develop his or her character, intellectual maturity and seeks to give back to the world. Gordon offers an intimate community in which each individual is recognized for his or her talent, potential and achievements (both large and small). Any student who looks to take their academics seriously while also learning more about him or herself will find success at Gordon College. A student who is committed to not only furthering him or herself but also dedicated to the improvement of mankind through serving God will be sure to feel at home at Gordon.

On a personal level, I'm having trouble balancing between my social life and my academic life. As a music education major, it's frustrating to handle the expectations, but I recognize the value of these high standards. The academic life is very demanding. This isn't a place to fool around, and I accept that gratefully. Unfortunately, as a music education major, we never seem to catch a break. Stress levels are hard to handle....
It is one of the safest campuses and that you do not need to have alcohol to have fun because the students that attend the college are very genuine.
