I am currently enrolled at Grand Canyon Univeristy, I have not yet started my first class. What first drew me into this school was the commercial they have on tv. Right from the beginning from seeing the commerical I was intrigued and wanted to learn more about this college. I have bragged to my friends about the ease of getting registered with this college and how friendly, professional, and helpful my admissions counselor and financial advisor has been. If any of my friends are thinking of going back to college, I would highly recommend looking into attending Grand Canyon University!
While my school is pretty amazing, I think the coolest thing about it is its school spirit! Everyone loves the school! From basketball to soccer to rugby, the stands are always packed. Not only are the kids super spirited, but they are also some of the kindest people I have ever met! People are super nice, social, and always willing to help anyone in need. Whether it be by holding the door for someone or showing someone where they need to go, the people at Grand Canyon University are the sweetest and most spirited people you will ever meet!
I am very proud to be part of a Christian School. A school that is dedicated to exposing students and potential students to thier spirituality, regardless of race or religious affiliation. The courses make you a well rounded, tolerant and giving person. One cannot be a student of GCU and not have to constantly self-reflect and think critically about current matters. To me GCU is not an impersonal school, I am treated as an individual and my advisors are really there for me. GCU is not just any university. It is a community.
My school is just simply remarkable! Not only it is good academically, but it is also a Christian school. It has not only allowed me grow academically, but strengthened my Christian faith more. GCU has ultimately guided me in the right path of life with the spirit of God along my side. The faculty and students emphasize the Christian faith into everything they do and that is what i love about GCU. Everyone is just so nice and friendly, and no matter what happens, you know that someone will always be there for you.
What I brag about most when I share my school (GCU) with others is this, their unconditional concern to help us get to graduation day. Although I am looking at a possible two more years (not including this year), I can honestly say from the first day I spoke to my academic counselor (Mrs. Loriann) I felt like I was going to make it to the end. I felt like this because in the very beginning she (along with the other on-line supportive staff) made it the personal business to contact me and make sure they helped me.
The environment of the school was very inviting and welcoming. Students participated in much of the school activities and it was awesome to be apart of that friendly environment. Professors were sincerely genuine of our success in each of the classes I had. They made sure each student was aware of their availibility and continuously reminded us of the review sessions for an exam. Being surrounded by instructors who were willing to make time to help advance our education was of great importance to me.
My advisory team and the librarians. My advisors keep me focused and invest their time and effort on mye personally. The librarians have helped me a numebr of times to find the one reference I absolutely need and cannot find, and always have answers for me in moments. Between them It's like having a full team of experts assisting me with keeping my studies on track and on topic. All this in addition to the professors and tutors who help with any challenges I have in the classroom.
I tell my friends that I love the fact that I can take my classes online and still work a full time job. I like the way the online class is set up and how nice and helpful the instructors are. The counselors are great at helping you get registered and help to make sure that you get everything completed to be registered. They even call and check how you are doing once in a while. They are very personable at GCU.
It would have to be how much I feel like I am being challenged there. I'm the kind of person who needs to be acedemically challenged and I love that this school does just that without making me feel like I'm drowning. I also love how close the campus is, between the placment of the buildings and the closness of the individuals there. It's the perfect place for me.
