What is your overall opinion of this school?

The School itself is a really good school. It has lots of options and opportunities for students to get into and try out as part of the college experience. I enjoy how everything is set up and run and that there are so many things to do on and off campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I transferred to Grand Canyon University after attending a state school and community college. The atmosphere and community GCU has, doesn't compares to anything I have ever experienced. I feel incredibly blessed to have the privilege to attend this University. The class size is small enough where the professors know your name and are intentional with teaching and helping students in any way they can academically or professionally. Attending this school has opened many doors and opportunities for me to gain experience and grow my resume.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college search is all about finding what school will be the best fit for each individual student, and I truly feel that Grand Canyon University is a phenomenal university that checked all of my boxes. Financially, Grand Canyon University (GCU) has worked incredibly hard to ensure its students can graduate with as little debt as possible. They own 12 different businesses (hotel, golf course, student advertising agency, etc.) that give students on-campus internship opportunities and support the University financially which has allowed GCU to keep tuition locked for over 11 years! Their counselors also work tirelessly to walk students through their time on campus to ensure they graduate on-time and with a job offer (93% of graduates graduate in 4 years or less, with 66% graduating early). GCU also offers a practical learning environment that emphasizes hands-on activities and access to professors. Each of my professors knew me personally and worked with me one-on-one during and outside the classroom. Grand Canyon Univerity also hosts fun events every week (nerf-gun wars, lip-sync battle, casino nights, etc.) and has great D1 athletic programs including one of the most energetic basketball student sections in the sport (GCU Games are the Biggest Party in College Basketball - ESPN). During my time as a student, I truly felt that GCU made an effort to give me a college experience that was both fun and productive. My time at Grand Canyon University was incredible, and I am a very proud GCU alumni and current graduate student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The environment at the school feels like an endless hug. What I mean by that is everyone is so nice there is never a time where you feel unsafe. The environment feels like a home and never stops feeling like that. The professors seem very enclosed in the students academic achievement and genuinely want to help toward your goals.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a great school. It offers a variety of options that help everyone to feel involved. I only wish I would have found it sooner. I was already in my second year of college when I began at Grand Canyon University. I wasted time at my other school. I also like that I can stay at this school and obtain my Master’s degree. There are online courses and in class courses. The professors give you their home numbers to reach them after hours. You never feel alone at this school. You also never feel let down or unable to find the resources to get to where you want to go.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will start off by saying I highly recommend Grand Canyon University to anyone looking into an online college. I attend GCU online but have been to their campus several times, the campus is absolutely beautiful and modern. The main reason I love GCU is I feel as if they really know what they are doing when it comes to online school, they have figured it out and they do it well. I was nervous when starting school but the way they have structured the classes, every class is the same. The content changes but you always have an assignment due on Sundays and Discussion Questions due Wednesdays and Fridays. This is amazing for students who are working full time jobs or are parents. The reason this is great is because once you can get the routine of class work into your life, you are set for the next few years of school until you graduate. It is really difficult when every new class you start you have to relearn the class routines for that quarter, but GCU keeps the routine going, reducing the stress you can get when starting a new class, wondering if you will be able to handle the new class. The content and assignments are extremely relevant to what you will be doing after you graduate. I have never had an assignment that I felt was irrelevant to my field of study and I usually enjoy the work given and the majority of the instructors are very helpful and willing to work with you. I am so glad I attend GCU, lopes up!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school, but the cost may not be as good as others. They have a Multitude of Online Courses all the way to Doctrine degrees in the online course. They have night classes and the traditional campus as well. In traditional and night classes, there is plenty of extra activities a student can be involved with and the online schooling provides a strong range of online library research, books, and much more to help with your ability to graduate. Though the cost is high the education received from GCU is higher than many other schools you could attend. Education, Medical, Theology, Physcology, Computer Technology, Film, Art, and a wide range of so many other courses for degrees available and that is why GCU is a great School to attend.

This is a great school, the people are super friendly and easy accessible. The teachers are very easy to get a hold of and there are great resources for all students. There is many activities her on campus and luckily finding a job on campus was an easy task as well. There is no reason to be shy here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Canyon University has an amazing and energetic atmosphere. There is always something going on around campus from clubs to random games on the fields to spirit sections for sports games. Everyone is welcoming and friendly at all hours of the day. We also have our own coffee shop with unique drinks special to GCU only! This university is a great place to make new friends and have a positive experience while still focusing on furthering our education. This campus is also very safe. We are a closed campus; therefore, you have to show your ID or get a guest pass to enter. This is great because it will keep out potentially dangerous visitors. We also have our own police that go around the campus and ensure everyone is safe.

I had a great experience at GCU. The professors were very interested and committed to our professional development, and the on campus life was vibrant. Everyone is very friendly and there are plenty of groups/clubs to join. The professors at GCU were always available and their mentorship helped me move onto graduate school.
