Your college experience should equip you with what you need to thrive in an uncertain and changing world. At Gordon College we’ll help you chart your course within the vast sea of possibilities so you can be confidently prepared for your career and for an abundant life serving God and others.
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?
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.
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.
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.
From day one at Gordon we’ll help you get where you want to go. Every student joins a learning small group centered around their interests, begins hands-on experiences in the first year and is coached in a clear career pathway.
“The liberal arts education [at Gordon] gave me such an excellent foundation to venture out into the world and not be afraid, just be ready to dip my hand into anything that came my way.”
