Small Town Looks, Big Appetite Restaurants! Although located in the small suburbs of Wenham, Massachusetts, Gordon is undoubtedly surrounded by some of the BEST dine-in and take-out restaurants around! We are within a walk or longboard ride away from Pride's of Beverly, MA, home of incredible subs and pizza. They also DELIVER to Gordon! Also located down the road in Beverly, MA is NICK'S FAMOUS ROAST BEEF, which speaks for itself. Incredible roast beef, shakes, and fries! Although these are among the more popular places to grab and go, Gordon is also just a short drive away from dine-in restaurants such as INDIGO Bar & Grille at Hamilton Crossing in Hamilton, MA, Wenham's sister town. Another great spot is hidden jewel Garden City Pub in North Beverly, MA.

The Rooms Are Bigger Than Other Colleges – Although a small college, it does have good and somewhat spacious rooms! The dorms on the hill are the best, but there's not much community. The HUD dorms are the oldest on campus and they are the central place. They have great community style, but are old. The newer halls don't tend to have very good community feel. If you are looking to interact outside of classes and clubs then the community style are the best- although old, the HUD dorms are great to live in for the first year! The options improve for upperclassmen.

The academics here at Gordon are amazing! We offer 38 majors! and 42 concentrations. Our Professors are nationally and globally recognized. We are so blessed to have some of the most intellectual and smartest professors in the world. And that doesn't take away the fact that each professor actually cares about you! They are here to help you and will even pray with/and for you. Our curriculum is great. The registration process is easy...as long as you have your tuition payed for...but even when you don't they are excited to help and get you through the process. the workload really depends on your major. If you're a physics major, you will have a bigger workload than most. but the program and the professors are set up in a way that will help you succeed!
