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!
GCU is a wonderful school filled with caring professors, great friends, and lots of fun events to go to. I love living on campus and having access to resources all around me, and having a safe environment to be in. It's a Christian university, which is good if you're a Christian, but I imagine could be awkward if you're not. Another minor issue, that is still annoying, is they don't have a football team, or a super strong music program. However, other majors have wonderful opportunities and resources available, and our basketball season is "lit". So, come on down and be a Lope! You'll be welcomed and helped in every possible way.
I am a freshman at Grand Canyon University (GCU) and cannot imagine being more happy at another university. The primary reason why I chose to go to GCU is because of the faith people share about Jesus. I also wanted to surround myself with those with similar values and principles as myself and people who are willing to courageously share the Gospel. Not only is GCU faith-based, campus is filled with a lot of spontaneous moments and people; for instance, some students are definitely not afraid to wear a onesie in the classrooms. One thing I wish change at GCU is having a roller-skating rink in the department next to the GCU Hotel. Other than that, I am proud to be a Lope, who receives motivation in every aspect of life, everyday!
