3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Only 3 good science proffesors total. One advisor told me I should change majors while the other told me to keep at it. 50-50 chance you'all get one that really supports you.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Alumni are very involved and willing to help with internships

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Campus Security vehickes are almost ALWAYS around. The station is located in the middle of campus. The Erie police station is also nearby

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Nice dorms. Best ones are North, harbor view, and the apartments though some may put you far from the classes. The campus is beautiful during the spring summer, and is in walking distance to the lake

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life makes campus livelier in my opinion. The Greeks, APB, SGA and a lot of the clubs are responsible for a majority of the events on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: We dont have a huge stadium for football, our gym is quite large, and apparently we have a baseball field I have never seen; but school spirit is DEFINITELY there. I love going to football and basketball games.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Joining a club/sorority/frat is probably the best decision you could make at this university. Gives you and outlet from just studying and working. Great way to make friends and memories!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been issues here with some fraternities and roofies but these places have been given temporary suspensions and hopefully they will lessen some day.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I have found this school to be exactly what I was looking for as a senior in high school. I went to a college prep school and they truly helped shape the environment that I was going to eventually be in and that was very beneficial. By going to a school such as that I can talk to my professors with ease because they are very welcoming and kind.

Overall Experience: This college truly wants the best for everyone who comes here. There are many opportunities for everyone to get practice for the real world and ways to make some money on the side here.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: As a freshmen you can live in one of three buildings. North Hall which is very new and well designed, Wherle hall which is somewhat older and the freshmen only dorm Finnegan. North Hall has many great conveniences with a gym, two floors of laundry, and kitchens on the first and third floor.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We're not big with Greek life, if you want to be apart you're welcomed and most frats and sororities will take interest and just about everyone is given a bid.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We have a brand new athletic center and it has some many opportunities and not just for those who want to exercise but our PT/OT students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As a freshmen in my second semester so far I have truly grown up here at college. My first semester I was timid and stuck to just my books but now i've made lots of friends and I enjoy the community.

Health & Safety: For where our campus is located, I feel we have a very good security system. Campus police are always on patrol during the day and night. The university also has call boxes on campus that a person can use if they see anything suspicious. Another thing that the university has is the Knight Watch. This is a group of students that are assigned different buildings on campus. Their job is to escort students and faculty to other buildings, their car, or wherever they need to go. They radio in every hour, when they leave for an escort, when they arrive at the location, when they're leaving the location, and when they return to their assigned building. This is my job on campus and I love it.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My classes are fun, but challenging. They really make me learn, yet keep me on my toes and make me more independent. The professors are very friendly and helpful as well. Another thing I like is that for each major, the university gives a guide that students are encouraged to follow to get the credits they need for their degree. I really love the class sizes too. That was one of my biggest fears coming to college. I was scared that I would be in a classroom with 300 other kids and just be another test that the professor would have to grade. It's not like that at all though. I think the most I had in a classroom was 35 students, and the least was 10 students. It really allows myself as a student to get to know the professors and for them to know who I am as a person.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Getting an internship is really easy with the help of professors. For my field, the professor in charge of internships is a former FBI agent. He has offered to help me on multiple occasions to get an internship at the FBI office closer to where I live because he worked there at one point in his career. Even though he is in charge of the internships, the other professors in my major help in every way possible to make sure students are getting internships as well.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I couldn't be any happier with where I live on campus. The people there are very kind and accepting of everyone in the dorm. We are our own family on campus and we look out for each other throughout the year. A few of us have even decided to stay another year in our dorm with affinity housing. It's the cheapest out of the freshman options and the oldest building out of them. The only time I don't like where I live is when it's time to do laundry. It's very chaotic and hectic to try and get a free washer or dryer. And a lot of the time, when you're waiting for a dryer, people will take your clothes out of the washer and put them somewhere. Nobody uses the whiteboard that's on the wall to figure out whose clothes are in what machine. I think that would help tremendously. It really doesn't effect me though because I do my laundry at about 1:30 in the morning, but there are off occasions where I have to do it earlier and fight for a machine.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I really don't have an opinion about Greek Life. I'm not going to be a typical person that rushes a sorority, but I'm not going to be rude to someone who does. The sororities/fraternities on campus are full of well-mannered people. They don't cause drama on campus and I have no problem associating with them.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I went to one football game. It was rainy, so I guess that had a huge factor on why there weren't many people. Those people that were there though were full of spirit. There was one group completely covered in school colors. Our recreation center is amazing. It's new, so it still has that shine to it. The people that work there are great and very accommodating and helpful. During my first semester, I was at the Rec a lot. My friends and I would play volleyball. The staff would help us set up and on really slow nights, they would take turns playing a round with us. I love going to the Rec whenever I can fit in into my schedule.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely fell in love with the campus the first day I got here. Everything is right here and if I need to go somewhere off of campus, we can take the bus for free thanks to the university. I've also met so many great people here on campus and made a lot of forever friends. The professors that are involved in my major are phenomenal! A good bit of them are former government agents and have experience in the field. They offer real life accounts of situations they have dealt with in their careers. It really helps me learn and I love it.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel as though the emergency alerts should be sent out earlier and more often

While every University has its pros and cons, Gannon students overall are pretty satisfied with their college decision. Gannon's strongest points are some of the most important factors when choosing a college: students, academics/professors, and location/atmosphere. Although Gannon is not perfect, the University does its best to provide what students need.

Gannon students think that the people on campus are one of the best things the University has to offer. Gannon does a phenomenal job of helping students decide what they want to do, pursue and become educated in a field, and then find a corresponding career. The small student-to-faculty ratio allows students to have personal relationships with their professors, who are known for going out of their way to assist students and prepare them for a successful future. The University's urban location, in the heart of Erie, provides students with a slew of experiences, with everything from shopping and entertainment to internships and job opportunities. Lastly, the constant updates, renovations, and construction at the University show that Gannon does its best to provide the most modern technology and facilities for students. The University's inquiries about what students would like to see in new facilities show that Gannon values student opinions and needs.
