What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Canyon University is a great Christian school. The professors are very friendly and are always willing to help. Not only are the professors willing to help, but the school provides a lot of learning centers that are available to all students. So, no matter if you're struggling, there are plenty of opportunities that will help you. Plus, the campus is beautiful and provides many food choices and little shops that you can get food.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I currently live in a rural are with no easy access to doctoral learning. I knew to complete my dream I would have to find an online environment that was both challenging and readily available to me with very small residency requirements. Grand Canyon University checked all of the boxes with the exception of very small residency requirements. They require you to spend a week on campus twice during the degree. Since I live in Virginia this was a substantial trip that would have made the degree program unattainable, except for the fact that Grand Canyon provides online doctoral learners with a hotel room that is included in the tuition for the class. Overall I have had one bad experience with a professor, just being unreachable and uncaring, but overall the college provides qualified professionals who truly seem to want me to succeed. The online academic environment is the same from class to class with the only variance being in the subject matter that is covered. Each class requires you to actively communicate on the discussion board, weekly readings, and assignments every 2 to 3 weeks that cover the subjects that were assigned for the reading period. Having been the 4th stop of my academic journey I am very familiar with how college financial aid works and having to deal with individuals who may or may not be familiar with me personally. Grand Canyon takes this to a much better place by assigning each student their own counselor that handles everything, which is great for a busy work life. The other big plus from this degree program is the free provided e-text books. Having purchased a small fortune in text books in the past, this perk alone makes GCU a school to consider.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a off campus student taking my courses on line. I haven chosen to do on line courses as I live to far from the campus. Even though my courses are on line the student I take courses with there is a lot communication, support and comradeship. The professors I have taken classes with are fantastic with communication, assistance and response time either through email or phone calls. Over all I will rate Grand Canyon University a 10 out of 10.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Canyon University is a great school to attend and the atmosphere of all the kids hustling around enjoying themselves is a nice touch to the campus. The only downfall I have about the school is that the location is not very college friendly and can be scary sometimes if you do not know the area very well. Over the past few years they have really made the campus feel like a top notch school with all of the events and activities that they have to offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

GCU is a very accommodating and challenging university. I take my classes online, but my instructors are very accessible and easy to talk to. The discussions between classmates is very stimulating and relative and sometimes helps with my classroom skills. My advisors are FANTASTIC! I have two of them and they are very good at keeping me in the loop and they take the time to contact me periodically to check in with me and make sure that I am stress-free and on-track. I would highly recommend GCU to anyone from freshman to PhD.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The overall curriculum, education-based aspect of Grand canyon is extremely fulfilling. I do feel there could be more activities, clubs and opportunities to get involved offered at this school. The affordability to live on campus is virtually impossible. I feel like I'm missing so much more by not connecting with my peers and having access to resources only available to on campus students. By paying for college on my own and having two jobs I feel they should be able to make School tuition and campus available at a more affordable rate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of GCU is that it is a good school if you want it to be. It is very easy to get in meaning there are all kinds of people there. They advertise as a Christian university and I think deep down they are. Since there was so many different kind of people there I don't think Christian ideals and fellowship was always the main focus to a majority of people. There are still Christians there if you know where to look. Most people will also say they are Christians but like most people they didn't always live it out. But if you try or maybe they will come to you, you can find people that seek Gods love and fellowship with Christ and will recognize there flaws and constantly reach for perfection even though they know they will never be prefect and that's okay. I didn't participate in much but they have many opportunities for you to meet new people and join groups or clubs or just make new friends in general. GCU is a good school if you choose it to be.
