My experience at Grand Canyon University was very good. I like the fact that Grand Canyon University is a Christian University and has great chapel services. I also like that the teachers take pride in what they do and make sure that their students are really learning.

Grand Canyon is a wonderful school. The campus and all it offers has grown so much in recent years and currently provides multiple opportunities with which to succeed. I thoroughly enjoy the university and its collaborative, family-oriented culture.

Grand Canyon University is full of amazing and such intelligent aspiring students who are all doing amazing things not only in their school but also in the community. Their school has set a high bar to try and get into their college. All the academic counselors are so helpful and professional also, they really make it easy to navigate through the entire admissions process and entrance requirements into their college. Their school is truly making such a big difference in more ways than one.
