Why I Love GCU
- G.C.U offers a welcoming setting for all those who step on its campus. I love the fact that students and professors have a genuine opportunity to connect to each other. This connection can foster an amazing learning experience both in and outside the classroom. It has been a joy to participate in that experience and witness the progression of so many highly motivated individuals as they pursue their academic and personal goals.
