It’s true, Erie winters are often cold and snowy, but Gannon students make the best of it! Nobody knows our campus better than the Gannon Guides, the dedicated students who give tours to visiting families like yours.  They know how to fend off the winter blues. So, we asked them how they get through the snowy winters in Erie.
