Not worth the money.Quite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
Not worth the money. I left classes (that I got A's in) not learning anything. Some professors here have no business being teachers. Gannon says they believe in Catholic values but this is a joke. They underpay their employees and treat them like garbage. They don't care about employees or their families. The president makes $357,000 a year and top administrators make tons of money but the vast majority of support staff doesn't even make enough money to live on. It's a joke, a sad sick joke.

The facilities on campus have very limited hours.Quite Bright
The facilities on campus have very limited hours. The cafeteria, the gym, the campus center, and the library are not open till the afternoon on the weekends and they all close early far too frequently. If you enjoy exercising late (after 8pm or 9pm) any day of the week, you are not able to. If you enjoy eating past 8pm, you cannot. If you enjoy studying past 7pm on Friday's or on Saturday in the library, you are not permitted to. The cafeteria also has a meal plan system that is very botched. You cannot use more than 3 meals in one day and no more than 2 meals a day on weekends (because the food venues on the Gannon campus are not open till at earliest 11:30am on weekends so you must not want to eat three times on weekends, right?) The people that attend this university are generally the kind of people that could not get into any other university, so they came to Gannon because of parental pressure. The health science major programs are great and if you attend the University only to attain a degree from one of these programs and you are not interested in anything else that goes along with college (meeting diverse, open minded people, experiencing new things, not fearing for your life if you walk off campus, being able to do normal things like exercising or studying at the library at all crazy hours) then this school is for you. If you attend this university you are severely limiting your development as a person but as long as you are just here for the degree (and only the degree) you are okay. Seek other options and only use this college as a means to your degree if you are unable to go anywhere else for certain reasons.

Gannon is a great school for health sciencesAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
Gannon is a great school for health sciences and education but their business program is not their strong point. Had I known that I would change my major to business when I started school I would have went to a different school. The people at Gannon are very nice though and it is easy to get involved with something, Gannon has varsity sports, club sports, intramural sports, honor societies, major specific clubs, clubs based on interest and greek life. If you can't find something to do here then you are not looking hard enough.
