  • Dylan from Thomaston, GA
  • I am a current student here

    I enjoy it here although there isn't a lot going on at the campus all the time. It has more of a laid back feeling to it.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    The campus is not very big, meaning the people we see we will be able to know and also be able to establish friendships.

    Gordon may not offer the lavishing city life atmosphere, but you are offered the warm and friendly small town hospitality which help make Gordon a place you enjoy being around. The small rural town setting, friendly faculty and staff, and opportunities for a long time friendships make it hard to every leave.

    Gordon College is great for high school seniors who are nervous about college and will help with the adjustment from high school to college. The campus is small, and easy to walk from one end to the other. There's almost no way to get lost, which helps for first-time college students. There are also many different dorms to choose from, so if a person decides that commuting isn't right for them, then they can always live on campus. The only negative thing about Gordon College's location is that there isn't much to do. There's no movie theater or bowling alley in Barnesville, but Gordon does have a student center with a rec room where you can hang out and play games. Although there isn't much do to around Barnesville, there are plenty of places to eat, and many restaurants to choose from.
