GCU is an all women's university, except at night when men are allowed to take classes. The dorms are strictly female as well. The school's atmosphere is incredibly positive and faculty and staff are there to support students 100% of the time. When attending GCU you will form bonds with students and teachers that are impossible to form in any other university.
Another great aspect of Georgian Court is that there are several nuns teaching classes and many that live on campus. The sisters are the sweetest people you'll ever meet and brighten your day every time you see them!

There are an abundance of computers on campus and even during the busiest times of the day there is always computers available in the library! The computers work well and are equipped with all the programs a normal student needs to complete their school work. The school also provides Dell laptops to incoming freshman that are awesome and come fully programmed with the latest software, like the full package of Microsoft Office.

My school's has a really strong education program but it lacks the social side of "the college experiment". The school is small so it has a more High School vibe to it which creates cliques especially when there isn't much to do on campus. Most of the professors are concerned about the students passing because it's such a small school so they have a name to face relationship. If we upgraded a lot of things on campus and added to the sports team, I believe the campus would allow the students to have a better experience.
