DAY ONE AT GORDON
There a few things you should know about how we’ll make sure you’re thriving at Gordon, starting on day one.
You’ll start the First-Year Experience (FYE) program before you even arrive on campus. As part of that, GC101 is an online learning community specifically designed to help you make a successful transition to Gordon and to provide you with everything you need before your first day.
From the moment you arrive on campus for Orientation until you receive your diploma, we want to help you make the most of your Gordon experience. Beginning with Orientation, we will provide you all the information you need to succeed in your major, get involved and deepen your faith. You will be placed in an Orientation Crew (O-Crew) with a small group of fellow classmates where together, you can acclimate to life on campus.
We know that your housing experience is important to you. It’s where you come home at the end of the day! As a first-year student, you will be placed with one or two first-year students in one of our 14 residence halls. Each floor has its own Resident Advisor, a returning student, who assists the hall’s Resident Director to create a comfortable environment to promote the growth and development of each student.
