This page contains resources to guide your transition to Gordon from your home or current institution. Since Gordon students come from a variety of backgrounds, a variety of resources are available as well. In these pages, you'll find information for first-time college students as well as resources geared toward more unique populations such as transfer and international students.
International students have the privilege of two orientations. In addition to taking part in our large program, international students participating in Fall orientation arrive a few days early to get to know Gordon College along with other second- or third-culture students. For Spring orientation, this program occurs in concurrence with the traditional program. You'll find more information about that orientation and other resources at the International Student Resource page.
For those who have already been to college, many of the transitions to Gordon look different. GC201 is specially designed to meet those needs, and Fall Orientation contains a few transfer-specific events that should help transfers transition to their new institution. Find our more at the Transfer Student Resources page.
