"I found that Grand Canyon University offered more than just a quality education in a Christian environment. It provided the opportunity for deep, long lasting friendships with my professors and other students. In fact, I enjoyed my experience at Grand Canyon so much that I decided to go on to pursue my mba at GCU."
