| Look I love the people here but in the past few years that I have been at Gordon it has become all about the numbers. Gordon cares way to much about bringing people in and not enough about the students who are already there putting their time and money in. I hate taking a back seat to incoming students when I've got 4 years invested in the school. Incoming student numbers are on the rise but retention rates are horrible and no wonder when all that matters is perspectives students and incoming students. I love the professors though and feel like I've learned a lot I just don't like the way the school is run. |

| After reading reviews about Gordon, I was kind of nervous about sending in my deposit. However, Gordon has been absolutely fantastic for me. It has really become my home. I had zero problems making friends, despite being generally recluse in high school, and the teachers really do seem to have you best interest in mind. |
Socially, it is what you make of it. Lots of students pout about lack of things to do, but don't do anything. I frequently made the best of it with my friends, and we would go and do stuff together. CEC (campus events council) does their best to make the campus more lively.
Visitation rules can be kind of annoying, but after a year of them, I've accepted them. It is kind of nice to not worry about easily falling into sexual situations, but at the same time I feel capable of refraining from them independently.
As far as privacy is concerned, it can be difficult between two sexes, but it is very easy to go to places where there is some. Dorms aren't really private places anyways...I love it, but it isn't for everyone.

| Gordon has been a wonderful place to grow and learn. I have learnt a great deal about myself because of a loving community who challenges and encourages me to dream and do my best in life. This community consists of peers, professors,residence life staff and other faculty. I have been exposed to some wonderful opportunities with Harvard and MIT students through Gordon programs, where else in the world would I be able to do that? I can't think of a better place to study. |
