Why I Love GCU

  • As a relative newcomer to GCU, I can honestly say that I'm thrilled to join this community of dedicated students, faculty, administrators, and staff who inspire one another daily not only to advance the content knowledge of our respective fields but also to reflect on how we might lead more balanced lives and become more responsible citizens. Students and faculty go about their activities seriously yet in a refreshingly unpretentious fashion, and I love that the intimacy of the campus fosters regular discussion between members of different schools and departments.
