This week on #AskGCU, Julian and his crew hit up campus to find the best place to take a nap! They started at Thunderground where the team tried out the outdoor lawn chairs as well as the couches and seating inside. They tested the comfort, quietness and darkness of this popular space. The inside of Thunderground is full of comfy seats, long couches and dim lighting: a napper’s paradise. Here they even witnessed a student in the middle of a nap, giving Thunderground the lead in the battle for the best place to nap at GCU.

The new year brings changes to the lives of many people – and personally, I have gone through a change that took some courage, but made a difference in my life. Growing up, I have always had really long hair. I am Navajo and kept my hair long because it is a part of my culture. But as time passed, it meant more to me than just long hair. My hair became a part of who I was, and I would only get a trim to keep it healthy. Once my hair grew past my waist, I decided the new year was the perfect time for making a change.

After being a student for 16 years and graduating from Grand Canyon University in December with my bachelor’s degree, it is a given that I have had to take quite a few tests in my lifetime. These exams have taken so many different forms, including multiple choice, fill in the blank, short essay, true/false, etc., and have covered countless chapters of different subjects. As a rare blessing, I have actually enjoyed school and done well in my classes, not because I am brilliant or even that smart, but because I have worked hard and learned how to study effectively.

As a current or future GCU student, here are a few tips for studying in college that I picked up during my journey in the Colangelo College of Business that I hope will help in your studies:

I’ve enjoyed eating at Canyon 49 Grill many, many times, and each time I have gone, I am never disappointed in my experience. The last time I went to Canyon 49, I took a cooking class to unleash my inner chef! I had no idea that Canyon 49 offered cooking classes, so when I had the opportunity to try one out, I was in.

zumba

I tried my first (ever) Zumba class at Grand Canyon University! I had always imagined Zumba as a game of Just Dance, but much harder to imitate. Although it was slightly similar to Just Dance, it was very different and I had a lot of fun trying something new. The great thing is GCU offers so many different classes in the campus gyms, which gives students an opportunity to meet new people (like me!) and try new things!

What do you think of when you imagine Christmastime? Do you think of ugly sweaters? Dressing warm in the cold? Watching cheesy Christmas classics? Decorating the Christmas tree with your family?

For me, I immediately go to the Christmas drinks. Give me a mug in the shape of a snowman’s head and fill it with hot chocolate, coffee, chai, etc., and I’m one happy girl. So, in honor of that, I have collected a list of some of the best Christmas drinks in Phoenix. It may be warm outside, but you can trick your mind into thinking it’s winter by drinking some of these!

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:18)

It seems like so long ago that I first started college. As a bright and hopeful freshman, I came in with the desire to get an education, graduate and then start my life. Somewhere along the way, though, college became less of a stepping stone and instead became my life. Before I knew it, I had a family of friends, a job, a church, a favorite restaurant, a GCU mug and a never-ending schedule of assignments to keep me busy. Soon patterns became routines and Grand Canyon University morphed from just another university into my home.

As a millennial who barely made the cut off in 1996, I constantly find myself deciding whether or not I want to be counted with my generation. However, after working all summer in an office with coworkers at least 10 years older (or more often my parents’ ages), I suppose I will concede and succumb to the stereotypes assumed of my age.

First and foremost, as a millennial, I attach “ing” to many nouns in an attempt to make them verbs and communicate with my generation. We commonly insert words like texting, emailing, lifing and, my personal favorite, adulting, into our daily conversations. Trust me, after living on a college campus for the past three years, I am well acquainted with the language of my peers.

The rumors are true: You’ll live off Ramen in college – that is unless you learn to cook.

Cooking for the first time by yourself can be both exciting and scary. I did manage to cook in my apartment for the first time and it was a blast. I decided to make something for dinner that I knew wouldn’t be too difficult: spaghetti squash. Plus, I’ve seen my parents make this so many times. Spaghetti squash is called spaghetti because the insides of a squash look like angel hair pasta. This alternative is not only healthier, but also cheaper! As a college student, inexpensive food and ingredients are an important factor when shopping.

Cue Willie Nelson singing “On the Road Again” one more time!

Some of my richest memories at Grand Canyon University have been traveling with my friends, exploring all that Arizona and the surrounding states have to offer. During my first two years at GCU, my friends and I spent most of our time hanging out and enjoying campus, but by the last two years, we began to spread our wings and adventure off campus. In our travels, I not only discovered new sites, but also discovered the absolute joy of community.
