Grand Canyon University is an amazing accredited school! The student life is lively, the courses are rigorous, the staff/teachers are motivated, the dormitories are inviting, and the school spirit is seeping out of every crevasse and pore. Every walk of life is welcomed at this school, regardless of race, sex or religion, which gives every student a priceless sense of belonging. GCU is a place where thousands of people proudly can call their second home, which is a critical reason why I adore this school so much. The campus offers delicious dining options and easy-to-use meal plans. Additionally, the facilities and buildings at Grand Canyon are consistently being updated and renovated with new additions and better modifications being installed each year. There is always a lot of construction going on, which tends to be annoying, but is truly a good thing because it lets me know that our campus will become even better.
Review Grand Canyon University
First of all... LOPES! For the school being newer, students at GCU have great school spirit. The environment is so positive, and people in general are incredibly nice. When I first applied, I was assigned an Admissions Advisor who has been with me every step of the way. I was unsure whether I even wanted to go to GCU, and he helped me compare with NAU and ASU. He looked for as many scholarships as he could and really got me set up for my attendance, and it was so smooth. He was supportive, non-judgmental, didn't pressure me when I was still undecided, and was super personable. My Academic Counselor has been great, and the Online program for Business Management has been very user friendly. You're also able to test out of classes which saves so much time and money! Ultimately, this is such a great school and I highly recommend it's awesomeness!
Grand Canyon University is an exceptional school that provides a positive atmosphere and institutional effectiveness which further en chances the students overall college experience!
