  • The Gannon Experience

    Ask students when they’ve had the most fun at Gannon, and you’ll get a variety of responses: playing ping-pong at Waldron, pick-up basketball with friends, Homecoming, the Jason DeRulo concert at Gannon’s Hammermill Center, hanging out in their residence hall, freshman orientation, improvisation class. Everyone has a different answer. That's because Gannon offers a wide variety of activities and organizations to meet all interests.

    It's easy to make friends and find things to do here. Our welcoming, friendly environment is the perfect place to participate in on-campus events, join one of our 75 organizations, and try something new. Our student-run Activities Programming Board organizes fun events including movies, concerts and trips. Residence hall life, campus ministry and service, and athletics and recreation add plenty of social activities to your schedule as well.
