• College Days is your Summer Orientation

    At College Days, new students and their guests are welcomed into the Gannon family.  As you move through your full-day Orientation program, you will engage first-hand with the comprehensive, values-centered experience at the heart of our University community.  You will encounter the hospitality of the students, administrators, faculty and staff who will help you feel at home at Gannon.  You will connect with faculty and peers from your academic communities.  You will leave with a clear understanding of what it takes to be a successful Gannon student and will create a vision for that success.

    This program is required for all incoming students; and is broken into 4 sessions based on the college of your academic program of acceptance.  If you are not sure what college you belong to, visit our academic programs page or call 814.871.7407 for more information.
