Grand Canyon University Reviews
My experience with Grand Canyon university has been nothing but fantastic. One factor GCU is known for is its community, and everyone on campus is happy to be studying to do what they love and are passionate about, the faculty is amazingly helpful and understanding, and the school offers a ridiculous amount of extracurricular activities that make its students' time there enjoyable. The only complaint I have would be the construction that constantly goes on around numerous parts of the campus, but ultimately seeing the campus grow is worth it and displays that GCU's administration knows what they are doing. I personally cannot wait to go back for this new year of academics, and would highly recommend committing to going to this school!
Grand Canyon University is a beautiful campus located in Phoenix. GCU offers a plethora of majors to all students with a desire to learn. Despite the high tuition, counselors at this university work with all students to ensure that their financially secure during the process of obtaining a degree. Meanwhile, professors do everything they can to find the education styles best suited for you! Not to mention, there are so many extra-curricular events and opportunities available to all students from music to math to sports. While GCU doesnt have a football team, soccer, rugby, and basketball are fairly popular and the purple pride is real! The local area isn't high maintenance but campus security is 10/10 as security guards stand at all entrances! If you're looking for a great time with good people and an even better education, Grand Canyon University is that place.
I was hesitant when I first started taking classes at GCU. I joined the online program mid winter after about 5 years out in the workforce. I was so delighted to find my second go at college to be so much better with GCU. I struggled through my associates and questioned if I was cut out for college. What I've discovered though, is that certain schooling types fit people differently. My perfect fit has been GCU's online program. They're very responsive, professional, always happy to help with any questions I have, and truly supportive. I recommend GCU to my friends and family when they ask for suggestions for good colleges. All the classes I have taken have really enhanced and challenged me - I have come out the better for it! I highly recommend this school!
