Many faculty/staff members do not care about you at all. Also, the dorms are disgusting. The chapel services get really old really fast. Also, the school never plans fun events, and when they do, they are not that great. There are definitely a lot of people who love Gordon, but don't just blindly listen to them. Really look into this place before committing to coming here.

Gordon College is a very closeminded environment with limited frames of truly versing the students into exactly what it is; I came to Gordon thinking it would simply be a nondenominational school. I found out (Only) in my fifth year that it was a nondenominational Evangelical college. Coming from the experience of a Southern Baptist, 'Evangelical' has always been a dirty word.

I would ultimately prescribe that Gordon's infrastructure for me as an on-campus sixth year Senior (Technically fifth by credit) is something I can't fathom getting any worse. The tenacity I feel within the environment and its' exclusivity as a school is something very troubling; I think you could say that the school has gotten worse for me since the Michael Lindsy event and reader, as I've experienced theological widenings within the framework of the school, the 'liberal' atmosphere it supposedly incurs (Which I warn you, sends a mixed message) is something that ultimately defeats the purpose of being a Christian school. There isn't a current of real world existence that comes through here, yet they try so amicably to fit the mold of the quintessential New England liberal arts college. This, in tandem with their exclusivity in allowing people to come in, makes a dangerous bedfellow to surprise.

As for my digression, be warned about going to this college. There are a lot of things to look for.
