Students who are prepared to be challenged academically and socially should attend GCU. GCU offers courses that prepare students for their future career while challenging their abilities. As a campus filled with about 11,000 students one has to be very outgoing to meet new people. Of course there is room for those who prefer to watch Netflix and stay in their room too. GCU offers a little something for everyone if a person is willing to find their purpose here on campus.

There is no typical Grand Canyon student as Grand Canyon offers a wide range of degrees.

It's about students that enjoy the learning experience in a very friendly atmosphere. The dorms try hard to match personalities to prevent fights and arguments. The school can prove large scale parties to make everyone feel as they belong. The student that wants to attend the school should expect to make many friends , it began as a nursing school so expect many females on campus , it is a Christian school so drugs, drinking and cussing isn't tolerated.

People who are dedicated to working hard towards graduating. This college has an accredited nursing program, one of the highest in the country, and the students who attend this program are intensely focused and driven. The other programs, while not as accredited, still produce hard-working and ethically prepared citizens of the US. Many students are Christian, and attend the weekly chapel and The Gathering, a student led worship service. They are here to learn and grow in their relationship with Christ, and this helps drive them to excel.

I am an online graduate student in my third class of nine to get my Master's in Education. GCU offers an awesome online program! I have learned so much through the readings and assignments that they have assigned. This is a great program for full-time professionals, people with kids, and people who need to go to school on their own time frame. I love it!

As a college student, there is no distinct "type" of student for any post-secondary institution. The greatest aspect of GCU is the diversity you will encounter. Everyone arrives with their own individual story, lifestyle, goals, achievements, and struggles. It is very exciting thinking about whom you may encounter on a daily basis and learning about that individual. College students can not be categorized, nor will they allow to be. Individualism is at it's best during these years.
