Review Grand Canyon University
I can not think of a better college for me than Grand Canyon University. The professors are very knowledgable and have a great amount of actual field experience, professors also teach the classes, not the teacher assistants like at most colleges. The class sizes are relatively small which allow the professors to get to know their students, and they truly care about their student's education. The atmosphere at GCU is unlike any other college I have heard of. There's an abundance of clubs and intramural sports for students to join and become involved with the school. GCU offers many academic scholarships, and the dormitories and apartments available are of great quality. With most of the campus being fairly new there are very few problems that arise. Lope country is the best country and I am so thankful that I have chosen Grand Canyon University!
I love the community and overall uplifting atmosphere of the university! There is a general sense of belonging here. With staff that is always willing to help students to succeed, classes are enjoyable and interesting! The university is continually offering students new opportunities to engage both on and off campus with outreach, volunteer and recreational activities. Grand Canyon University is a growing community offering students an environment in which they can build relationships, grow and succeed!
