5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I could not have chosen a better school to attend. I have grown in my faith and academically and socially. Overall my school is the best place for me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience with Grand Canyon University has been great! This university wants you to gain your education and ensure this by giving students options such as online classes. The university is Christian based which surprised and delighted me to know that I am getting an education from here.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I have not had an online course at GCU, but my sister and roommates have. According to them there is a lot of work to be done online. It seems like they are always doing work for those classes. It is also kind of hard to interact with other students, because they can not see them face to face, as well as with the teachers.

4 College Freshman

Career Services: I personally have not used the career services, but I know that it is there if I need it. I have friends who have gone to career services and they found the service to be very helpful.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have especially enjoyed some of the class sizes of the classes I have been in. I had one class that had only eight students, which gave the class a close-knit type of feeling. We all become good friends and still are friends. The largest class I have been in had around forty students, but the friendliness of everyone made up for the intimidating number. There are courses being added every year, so I would say there is a large variety of courses to take. The teacher try to incorporate many teaching methods to keep the student engaged and to appease everyone's learning abilities.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For the education majors, there are many opportunities for practicum hours and student teaching. Teachers from around the area come to the school to offer information about their schools and to receive information about the students. This builds connections between schools and future teachers in a way that gives that education majors a strong likelihood of getting a job there.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I have been learning so much about my career field that I get more exited about it everyday! Grand Canyon University allows education majors to complete practicum hours to become certified during their college career. This is a faster way to get the certification done and I think it adds to the whole learning experience. We get to interact in primary/secondary school classrooms as we are learning about becoming a teacher. I never thought a hands-on learning experience could be applied in college classes this way. The professors are all very nice and care about each student individually. They even try to remember everyone's names! The work load gets a little heavy, but I think that is because I am in the honors program. The curriculum of the program is very relevant to the major. I do not ask myself why I am doing this project or that essay, because it is obvious. There are many clubs that are focused on future teachers such as the Education Rising club and the NCTE club.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love how GCU offers many opportunities to grow mentally and spiritually. My favorite experience so far is going to life group (Bible study) and "the gathering" (worship night) every week. Both events add to the community feeling of the school, which leads me to another reason I love GCU: community. The school puts on many events that promote a healthy community of students. Some events include movies on the lawn, carnival nights, and student talent shows. Even the student/teacher relationships are healthy. I feel like I can approach my teachers with any academic question I may have.

Academic Experience: Being a major in Government has allowed me to understand and apply what I learn in the classrooms to the real world. The workload is just what you would expect from any other college, except here you can get extra personal interactive help as needed from professionals and professors who want to help you succeed.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience so far has been fun and full of great memories! I am glad I chose GCU over any other school because this school has helped me grow as an individual and taught me how to manage my time well. From the awesome, interactive school events to the engaging classroom lectures, I have to say that what you put into the school is what you will get out of it. I love GCU and am looking forward to the next three years here!
