    Two essential components of the enrollment process are your visit and your interview. The best way for you to get to know Gordon is to come to campus, and the best way for us to get to know you is to schedule an interview with your admissions counselor. An interview will also allow us to explore with you some of the many opportunities for service, leadership and honors programs available to you as a Gordon student.
