Group Visit

Let them explore! Bring a group of high school students to campus for a taste of life at Gordon. And what better way than zipping through campus on an outdoor education adventure, enjoying performances by world-renowned artists, or being part of our wild fan club during a Fighting Scots game?

Several events throughout the year offer great opportunities to bring your youth group, academic club, musical ensemble or theater troupe to campus. Start with the list below, or explore our event calendar. During your visit to Gordon, your group will also get a chance to explore our beautiful campus, taste our food, worship with us, and learn more about Gordon by connecting with our community.
