Great teachers, flexible program, good communication with teachers and counselors. I loved everything and graduated with my Masters last year!

DO NOT ATTEND GCU in-residence. My son is currently at GCU and waits 2 to 3 hours a day for food. They only have shopping mall type fast food places on campus for the students - no traditional style cafeterias like any normal school (no matter how small) and they overenrolled by about 10,000 to 15,000 students on campus, further stressing their already fragile food resources. It's miserable for him and all the students. He truly waits about an hour per meal - time that takes him away from studies, sometimes classes (if he wasn't able to get food at the prior meal time - yes, sometimes having to skip meals because the lines are too long) and all other activities. I visited him there and I've seen the students standing in line like refugees waiting for a handouts. The food is expensive like a mall, or an airport at the few convenience stores on campus and there's not even been orange juice at the only little breakfast place on campus all semester (Fall, 2021). The administration seems completely unconcerned and has been unresponsive to my concerns about any of this. Scarce, expensive, poor-quality food and a leadership that doesn't care. Too bad they are destroying a Christian-based school because we need more of them, more than ever but GCU needs to remember their mission and embody Christ's care of His followers. We're not expecting miracles like the loaves and fishes or wine from water. We're not asking for charity- we paid for it. They just need to deliver reasonable food like any other institution that's entrusted with the wellbeing of its young residents. It's a total disgrace and he won't be returning for a second semester.

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.
