Fall semester classes at Gordon College will begin Monday, Aug. 15 with some 1,000 resident students moving in Aug. 11 and 12. Gordon College expects about 4,700 students to enroll, but exact numbers will not be available until later in the semester.’We’re looking forward to another great year,’ said interim president Shelley Nickel. ‘Through the academic year we’ll be making improvements to our campus to better serve our students. Our new Nursing and Allied Health Sciences Building is ready for its first full academic year. Plus, we’ve expanded our course offerings and students can now earn a bachelor’s degree in six areas of study ‘“ early childhood education, English, history, mathematics, biology and nursing.’ With most students commuting to campus, some adjustments have been made concerning parking. The smaller parking lot adjacent to the NAHS Building is now designated for faculty/staff only. Several spaces have been opened for commuter students in the lot next to Alumni Memorial Hall near the Aquatic Center.Mason added that while students should always be careful driving on campus, special care should be taken the first few weeks as students familiarize themselves with traffic flow and pedestrian patterns.
