midnight madness at GCU 2016-17 season kickoff

I’m so excited that basketball season is finally here!

I have heard so many wonderful things about GCU basketball and it was really cool to be able to experience all of it firsthand. In high school, I went to a couple of basketball games, but they were nowhere near as exciting as this game was. The entire atmosphere of the Arena was thrilling. Every student was just as hyped to watch the game as the players were to play in the game. It was so much fun to stand with my friends and other students to cheer on our Lopes.

In college, academics should fall as number one on a student’s list of priorities (by expectation default). But, a well-rounded college experience can lead to the greatest success and most impactful growth. Participating in extracurriculars helps create a balanced college life by providing a social outlet where students can take their mind off of academics and enjoy what they love doing most.

There is much to learn outside of the classroom, whether you play an intramural sport, perform on stage or join a club related to your major. And Grand Canyon University offers a wide range of diverse opportunities for students to get involved, discover their passions and create lifelong memories.

At GCU, we highly encourage our students to take advantage of opportunities to get involved. The following benefits emphasize the value of joining a club or organization on our campus:

Adjusting to new surroundings can be difficult. After leaving the comfort of her friends, family and home, Tatum struggled to find her place during her first few weeks of life on campus.

At first, Tatum was having a hard time relating to those around her, because it seemed as though no one was missing home as much as she was. Without having her friends and family with her, she felt alone. When going to GCU’s scheduled events, she was able to have a good time and focus on what she was doing. However, when she was alone, she did not know what to do.

Homesickness is not an easy thing to deal with. I’m very close to my family and being apart from them has been difficult.

I’ve struggled with homesickness a lot these past few weeks and what I’ve learned from all of it is that it’s okay. There is absolutely nothing wrong with missing your family, your pets, your home and even your bed.

College has been so different than anything I am used to. It is so strange for me to not be in school all day long. I am still adjusting to the schedule, but I love my classes. I think that it is so cool to be able to work on subjects that I am actually interested in. It is mind blowing to me that I am working toward my career. The homework load actually isn’t too bad for me. I am so used to having tons of homework in high school that this is manageable for me. I have actually been able to get ahead in some of my classes!

This week has been like nothing I’ve ever experienced before.

My family and I woke up very early the morning I moved in to try to beat the traffic. During the entire ride over to GCU my stomach was in knots. I was excited to move in, but I was also scared. I had to say goodbye to my dog earlier that morning, so I was already emotional, and the fear only intensified as we got closer to campus.
