As graduation approaches, seniors are reflecting on their time at Gannon. With countless experiences and memories behind them, we wanted to know, “What is one thing that Gannon has given you?”

Shane Braendel, business management major:
Manhood – I have definitely grown up in these four years. I became a man.

Jared Lossie, mechanical engineering major:
The opportunity to succeed.
Ryann Beaumont, biology/pre-med major:
Gannon has given me better study skills and time management. All through high school, I never really had to study to get the grades, but here I have had to buckle down and study.
Dom Lombardi, biology/pre-dental major:
A fantastic education.
Steph Gottron, social work major:
Self-confidence – I have gained confidence in my abilities and in the relationships that I’ve built here. I also have confidence that I can set a goal for myself and get it done.
