What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find a college that will challenge you, that instills a bit of fear, because you don't want to be complacent. Life each day with adventure, and dare it to give you a dream to catch. The college you are looking for should be a place that you know you can grow in academically and maturity. The best college is always the one that you can see yourself adding to, just as much as you are getting from it.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had been more open to trying new things, and been more well rounded. There is so much that this school has to offer, and I needed to become more time oriented to be able to fit it all in! But to be honest, one really cannot know what to expect. Every day is a new day, and a chance to succeed. Our mistakes help us grow, so if I could advise anyone about Grand Canyon University, I would tell them to be open for a life changing experience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person who should attend this school is someone who is open for change, ready for growth, and wants an adventure.

Grand Canyon University is very diverse and does not discriminate, everyone is welcome here. If you are ready to develop your mind, be prepared, because Grand Canyon University will make you into the strong man or woman you desire to be.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Grand Canyon University is a Private Christian school that is very open in their beliefs and thoughts. It is a friendly small enviroment where everyone is family.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would pick a college that suits your personality. If you are a quiet person and dont like big crowds I would lean more towards smaller colleges and university that is more about becoming a family. If you like the social life I would lean more towards big state universitys. Choose whatever school has the best program for your major.

Describe the students at your school.

Most of my classmates are hard working, focused, and determined as most of them also work full-time and have families to take care of like myself.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would encourage students to attend college immediately after high school. Waiting or taking time off is a waste of time. It's best to get started as soon as possible. I would encourage parents to talk about college with their children at young ages so the children understand the importance of college and feel that college is just part of a normal education. I would also encourage both to start a college fund at a young age. College is expensive and grants are not available to the middle-class. You have to be on welfare or be a teen-mom or single mom to get any kind of grants so it's important to start saving years in advance.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College is an experience for any person but you have to look at all aspects of it. Living arrangements, the transition of leaving home. GCU is a wonderful college that has given me the chance to further my life and have a better experience in my life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Do your homework. Research the school to find out if it fits your needs. Don't forget to FASFA and do it early. On homework, do not put off till tomorrow what you can do today. Deadlines come fast. It never fails, complications come when their least expected. Early work ensures the likelyhood a question to the instructor will be answered timely. Finally, don't stress out.

What's unique about your campus?

Instructors. The instructors at my school are professional, yet care about their students successes and transforming their failures into successes.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To find the right school first determine the passion of the student. Next, what school' s program of study best fits his/her passion. Finally, does the student's personality match with the setting of the university. Some students are not comfortable with certain college settings. I believe in making good choices in these areas, the college experience will be a great one and an easy transition.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The amount of courses available and the quality of the instructors.
