In addition, the College offers numerous honors experiences, programs, and coursework to enrich learning in and beyond the classroom.

The A. J. Gordon Fellows Program
The A. J. Gordon Fellows Program seeks to advance undergraduate scholarship and leadership for a select group of ambitious students eager to apply their God-given talents and gifts to a world in need of hope. Drawing from the rich heritage of Rev. Adoniram Judson Gordon and the ongoing innovations of Gordon College, we cultivate a cohort-based program including one-on-one coaching, small-group peer learning experiences, and a focus on personal scholarship and independent learning options.
