Easter is always a very special time. Not simply because I get to spend time it with my family, but also because I get to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. It was also a particularly special Easter season because my little brother, Caleb, was baptized. It was so amazing to be able to watch my little brother move into the next chapter of his journey with God. I feel especially blessed to have been able to have shared that moment with my family. I cannot wait to see how Christ moves in his life.

Grand Canyon University has been my home for the past three years. Coming from a small private high school with a graduating class of 56 students, I was unsure of what to expect moving onto campus my freshman year. It was strange that in just one month or two, my roommates and I stopped talking about going back to the “dorm” and instead started calling it “home.” My transition from a small high school in another state to living, learning and working at GCU was definitely made easier because of the strong Christian community!

Choosing which college you are going to go to is a very important decision that many teenagers have to make. When I was accepted into Grand Canyon University, I was still unsure of where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do with my education. I wanted to go to a college where I knew I could have fun while getting a good education, as well as being within my budget to avoid graduating in massive amounts of debt. The more I learned about the GCU experience, the faster I realized that it fit most, if not all, of my criteria. I continued looking into the university, and as I did, the higher it climbed on my list of the colleges I was seriously considering.

When thinking about Arizona, most people picture cacti, desert, cowboys and heat. It’s actually pretty funny how many people ask me if I know any cowboys when they find out that I live in Arizona. And yes, there are cowboys here, but that is not the only thing that defines Arizona. Arizona has lots of different places to explore that don’t fit the stereotype of a desert filled with cowboys and cactus.

There are many ways that college students try to save money. One method that some students like myself use is commuting to class from home. Although there are many benefits to commuter experience, there is a chance that we commuters may feel disengaged from college life, perhaps even feel left out. To avoid this, Grand Canyon University has provided multiple amenities for their large commuter population that has made us not only feel welcome, but also made us feel at home.

I was walking down the sidewalk on the Grand Canyon University campus, headed toward Building 26, thinking about how worried I was that our nation was losing its ability to be kind, compassionate and understanding. I knew I was fortunate to come to work each day for an organization that models our best, but nonetheless I was worried about what I witnessed in the media on an almost daily basis. I was giving myself a pep talk that everything would be okay, but I am not sure I was convincing.
