Grand Canyon University Reviews
GCU is a great 4-year. The activities board comes up with fun, free ways for students to socialize, take a break from homework, and just have a genuinely positive time. It is a private, Christian university with stricter rules than many public universities, and they do enforce them. It is a dry campus, meaning no alcohol or drugs are permitted regardless of age, and it has no Greek life. It is truly a place for students who are serious about their education and pursuing their goals. GCU's campus is safe, gated, and patrolled by campus security as well as the Phoenix police department. This is necessary considering that GCU is not located in the best part of Phoenix. It was a conscious decision to settle GCU in this location in order to provide students the opportunity to help the less fortunate and help better the surrounding area. The dorms are new and very spacious compared to many public universities. GCU is the way to go. Lopes Up!
Grand Canyon University is a welcoming, diverse and unique college. The students and staff are very kind and considerate. I've noticed that the students mix well together and are free to be themselves and take in new people that they will soon create a new relationship with. The campus is very neat, clean and safe which I value greatly. The security guards are kind, but they still are strict to the rules, which is amazing. The atmosphere that GCU has is so different from the rest. The Havocs are very wild and supportive and make very own want to be on a sports team just to be recognized by them or they make everyone want to join their "squad". Grand Canyon University is a magnificant, focused and fun college as I've seen, and I recommend it to any and everyone!
When I started classes at GCU (online) I felt like I had great support team and it was easy to reach out when I needed to. About the beginning of the third year that support was gone. Two name specifically Renee Ryder and Jennifer Brown (Student Service Counselors) were gone. They were great by the way! I do not know where they went and probably never will. I started being contacted by my current Student Service Counselor and there has been very little help or direction provided by this person. I have not heard from a Student financial Advisor in at least a year. I have read several review and have found other students who have experienced this. I am in my fourth year and am struggling to get through this. Giving up is not a choice as that is not in my worth ethic. Financing may be what puts thing on hold. Please do your homework! I thought I did, but up until the this year when I was so heavily invested it turned for the worst.
