In Their Words

The education that happens here—in the classroom, outside the classroom—looks far beyond the matter of what jobs our students will get, what careers they will be able to pursue. It goes so far as to help them ask and answer that most pivotal question, ‘Given what I have learned, how should I live?’ ”
—Daniel Johnson
associate professor of sociology

“Instead of applying to the field of linguistics what I’ve learned in other classes, I’ve found more often that I am able to apply what I’ve learned in linguistics to most of my other classes at Gordon.”
—Gabe DiMauro ’10
Pike scholar, history, French and linguistics major
