First off, the campus in in the middleQuite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
First off, the campus in in the middle of downtown Erie. Erie isn't the greatest city around. This past year there seemed to be a shooting every night. Students get mugged for their cell phones on a daily basis. This is not a nice place. For the crazy amount of money this place costs why wouldn't you go somewhere much safer? The professors are also a joke, well the majority of them. There are professors that teach at Gannon who are absolute idiots. There are classes that are so poorly facilitated it's like you're trapped in a bad joke, but the punchline is you're paying thousands of dollars for this garbage. I've been to other universities around the region and have never experienced the incompetency that is rampant at Gannon. The administration at Gannon also makes absurd amounts of money compared to the support staff and adjunct faculty. You have the president and Vice Presidents making 400k, 300k, 200k and you have cleaning people, maintenance, secretaries, and adjunct professors making 10-12 bucks an hour. Doesn't sound like good catholic morals to me. This place doesn't care about students or their employees. All Gannon cares about is taking your money!!!

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.
