So, start here—at New England’s top Christian college.

Gordon’s 485-acre wooded campus is nestled on the North Shore of Boston, in Wenham, Massachusetts—just three miles from the ocean and near thriving, diverse communities. New England is both steeped in history and rapidly rising to welcome the future. And Gordon is the only nationally ranked, multidenominational Christian college here. What better way to prepare to step confidently into the world than to begin dipping your toes in now?

Life-shaping academics

Some days your classroom might be an internship in downtown Boston or the Biotech Corridor, a research project in the Great Marsh in nearby Essex, art-making in an ancient convent in the Italian countryside or working with a human rights organization in Zagreb, Croatia.

Confidence and skills are built through challenge, so a lot of learning happens by doing.

Life-changing experiences

Join Fighting Scots Nation as an athlete or superfan. Belly laugh your way through student improv performances. Trek through the Adirondack wilderness on a La Vida expedition.

Charter a club for something you love. Enjoy concerts and theatre performances on campus. Rally on the quad for a snowball fight or Gull Pond for a beach campfire. And through it all, build lasting friendships.

Life-giving faith

Join fellow Christians from diverse backgrounds who all want to deepen their relationship with Jesus, learn from one another and prepare to be a powerful witness for Christ in the world.

Just imagine what you can learn when you’re surrounded by a wide variety of Christian traditions in worship, prayer, discipleship and service.
