Majors: The material covered in each program (except Christian Ministries which is actually a joke major) is pretty decent. Few majors have mandatory internship programs, so you will have to seek out internship opportunities on your own (by talking with professors and career services). These supports are good, but you will really have to be proactive about it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Most students receive some type of scholarship. This school is outrageously over-priced for the quality of education, but at the very least the financial officers are incredibly helpful.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Our school has the lowest reported crime rate in the country. You can leave your laptop in the dining hall and students you don't know will track you down to give it back (that was actually a true story).

However, the school does not address any of the sexual needs of students (i.e. providing condoms or safe sex education, and there is no public conversation on sexual assault- administration would rather deal with 'those issues on a more personal level').

Campus Housing: Housing is separated by gender and the last I checked this is 2015. You will not be allowed to visit your friends room during certain hours because you have different gender identities. This rule is strictly enforced.

There are also only 4 nice dorms that are notably more expensive, and the rest they will not show you on tours.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing very extraordinary here. Local towns have some good locations, and there are a number of local seafood/lobster shacks. There is no off-campus meal plan.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: The students are all exceedingly polite, and it is generally a safe environment for the hegemon. However, students of color and other minorities face a lot of hostility from peers.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There is no formal off-campus housing option selection through the school. Local areas offer a decent number of low-cost apartments.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at Gordon College. Fraternities and Sororities are not permitted by administration.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Administration does a great job!

4 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being a sophomore, I have not used these resources extensively.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus so I don't know very much about it.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my classes and professors.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I wish there was more school spirit.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I appreciate everything this school does to protect its students.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: If you are an athlete, you have incredible access to gym equipment, personal training, and medical care. It is much harder to access these things as freely if you are just a regular student.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our campus is easily ranked as one of the safest campuses in the nation. Generally good people mixed with great security means a very safe environment.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some dorms are very old, outdated and falling apart. Some are very far from any class, which is brutal in the cold. Except for the new dorms, the housing is pretty rough.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Again, it is middle of the road. You can get to some nice restaurants if you have a car, but most students don't drive. Even with a car, many close places are either expensive, not very good, or don't offer student discounts.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I personally don't live off campus yet, but according to my friends that do, it is a pain to apply and receive permission to get off campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received the highest possible scholarship offered by the school and I am still going to have to take thousands of dollars in loans. I wish they offered a full-ride scholarship for students who both need it and are willing to work for it.

4 College Freshman

Majors: All of the professors in the finance department are either doctors, highly ranked in their field, or both. They are excellent teachers for the most part who want us to succeed both in and out of college. I am truly grateful for the Finance department. The admission process is pretty straightforward, but it helps to have an economics/finance/math background in high school.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are rarely parties on or off campus, which, from the party scene perspective is pretty bad. The parties that do happen are rarely big "ragers" though.
