| Great Education but limited opportunites to gain practical experience. Their Career Development Services boast placement statistics they had nothing to do with and the only advice they give is how to go on a job board, also very unhelpful in terms of internship placement. I think with their high tuition the least they could do is invest in an effective Career Development Department. |

| Gannon is a good place for students who want to be treated like cattle. Much of the administration and some members of the faculty have incredibly large and undeserved egos. The school is run more like a business than a school. Gannon's brass is more interested in things like profits, the school mission statement and its "catholic identity" than it is in its students or academics. Gannon's image is also one of its fixations; it frequently touts its high rankings in college ratings, but its students nearly always struggle to find employment after graduating. In general, Gannon is quite simply a small-time college with a huge Napoleonic complex. |

| I was a resident of Erie prior to attending Gannon, but I came here for family reasons. I grew up thinking Gannon was just a small school that no one really valued. I was proven wrong. Faculty and staff are helpful, and although I have heard horror stories about some advisors and teachers, most are very accessible and friendly. |
This is not a party school. Sure, there are parties on the weekends but you have to know people. Most students want to have a good time and do, just a little differently than their idea of typical college life.
Erie is a not really a college town. I know it as a good place to raise a family. The city is fun to walk around and campus itself is only a few blocks, so classes are really easy to walk to.Overall, Gannon is a great school, just don't expect to have much of a partying life. People can be a little withdrawn sometimes, but that's just like any other school. Most people don't act like they are still in high school. If you want a small univeristy in a moderately sized city, Gannon is a good candiate for you.
