Moving into my dorm was extremely exciting! This year, I am in an on-campus apartment, which means I have a room all to myself! Never in my life have I had my own room – my sister and I have always shared a room and last year I had a roommate. It’s so nice to have my own space! Plus, one of the other nice things about having an on-campus apartment is there is a full kitchen. I can cook my own food and learn new recipes instead of always buying food out!

Most of us in Arizona are aware that we have a teacher shortage in our state. I was aware of the issue, but it didn’t really hit home until last year when I attended a number of meetings with charter school administrators and representatives from the Grand Canyon University College of Education.

The meetings all followed a similar pattern. The school leader would highlight the unique qualities of their school and then express an interest in hosting GCU students for their practicum and student teaching experiences. They believed that once students had experience in their school, they would be more inclined to work there after graduation.

Welcome Week is one of the biggest events GCU holds each year. I experienced Welcome Week firsthand when I moved in as a freshman last year. It was something that made me feel special and included; it made me feel like I was home, despite the fact that I was in a new place. And as a returning student this year, I was able to participate in Welcome Week in a new way.

Every summer, my family and I go to San Diego. I was very excited to go on our annual family trip! The drive over is one of my favorite parts of the vacation; there’s lots of singing and laughing, which is a lot of fun, especially when my family is involved.

It is an age-old question anyone living on a budget understands: How do I get the most bang for my buck? As a college student, this normally applies to food. How can I get the most filling and healthy food for the cheapest price?

Generally, the answer involves cooking meals at home, and thanks to Grand Canyon University’s investment in apartment-style housing, this has become an option for many of GCU’s on-campus students. With six apartment-style options on campus for the 2017-18 school year, four of which were built in the last 2 years, students are looking for ways to save money with good old fashioned home cooking.

GCU Campus

What is it that makes Grand Canyon University a true oasis in the heart of Phoenix? Is it the state-of-the-art athletic facilities? The many delicious dining options? The brand new classroom buildings? The sparkling swimming pools? Maybe it’s that, despite its rapid growth, the campus still has the feel of a close-knit community, making it a perfect place to call home for thousands of students from across the country.

Recently, Town & Country Magazine listed the best college campuses in the country according to Niche, a company which specializes in educational institution data. Based on student surveys, U.S. Department of Education data and college statistics, GCU was named one of the best college of campuses in the country – the only school in Arizona to make the top 10. GCU beat out other colleges like Stanford and Yale to claim their spot, which begs the question: What is it that makes GCU’s campus so unique?

I’ve always wanted to learn how to ride a skateboard. Growing up, a lot of my cousins skateboarded. It was something that seemed incredible to me ever since I saw them riding. Skateboarding was one of those activities that you see an older sibling do and want to try yourself. But they always told you that you were too young. Now older and in college, I decided to learn how to ride.

At GCU, courses are scheduled with ease and we offer opportunities for students to complete their education in less than four years.

Many of us experienced working on campus while we were in college. It was a time for us to make a little money in a professional job while going to school. There usually weren’t specific jobs we were looking for, but just on-campus jobs that would work with our school schedule.  It seemed pretty ordinary and not very significant at the time. But, in reality, it does have significance and value.

Hanging out with my friends has always been something that I love to do. Whenever we’re together, no matter what we’re doing, we always have fun. This time around was no exception! We wanted to mix things up from what we normally do so we decided to have a girls’ day. This meant having a spa party, trying a new talent and eating dinner together.
