Each August, and again in January, we warmly welcome new students and their families to our Gordon community. Transitioning into and through your first year at Gordon College—as a first-year student or transfer, and as a family—can be challenging, so we hope to start your year with celebration and hospitality. We hope you feel welcome.

We look forward to welcoming our new international students on August 21, students returning from La Vida expeditions on August 22, and all other new students on Arrival Day, August 23!
