I attended Gannon and at first thought itQuite BrightNursing
I attended Gannon and at first thought it was okay. Soon after I completed my freshman year I realized okay was an overstatement. I never felt safe walking to class even though I lived on campus. I lived across from the library and would not walk to it alone, being afraid of being held at gunpoint or mugged, I felt the same as I walked to my classes. Homeless people will hang out in the academic buildings as well as the library. This is not the proper or safe learning environment for students. I transferred to a larger university and have never felt safer or happier.

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!!!
