    I had a good experience overall having been involved in different clubs on campus and challenging myself to grow within each of the different jobs I was able to get. As long as we pay attention to the right emails, it's easy to learn about the different opportunities offered around. Different clubs offer a variety of events consistently and there's always something to do with your friends on campus and off campus.

    Gordon has an amazing community where people from across the globe are together and I believe this is where friendships are made.
    Gordon is not that far away from Boston so you can go spend some quality time with your friends in Boston and enjoy your weekend to relax.
    One of my best experiences was meeting faculties and staff here. They really help and care about your success so I recommend using it to your advantage because they will help you.
