This was my first visit to GCU as a prospective student and I was impressed with the size of the school; at 23,000 students on-campus, it felt smaller but large enough to not feel confined. Loved the cleanliness of the campus, sans all the construction, but growth is a good thing, right? I enjoyed the easy-going vibe from current students and how easy it is to get around campus. GCU is definitely in my top three.

Compared to other universities, Grand Canyon is much smaller, so if you are strictly looking for a smaller community then this is a good college to consider. Grand Canyons main headline may be "Private Christian Affordable," but the university is also open to any other religion or beliefs so there's no need to worry about being able to "conform" because there are plenty of students there who walk their own path.
