Learning has always been part of summers at Gannon University.

programs are also offered, such as the Summer School of Excellence,
at which invited students can learn aboard the Environaut, Gannon
University's 53-foot research vessel. Budding actors can take the
stage at the Gannon Theatre Experience and aspiring journalists can
fine-tune their skills.
