Happy Thanksgiving, Lopes! Here at Grand Canyon University, we have a lot to be thankful for. Over the past year, we have had the opportunity to grow and continue to make an impact for Christ in the surrounding community.

To start, our campus continues to expand in Phoenix. From new classroom buildings to new student housing, from new dining options to the new soccer stadium, GCU’s campus is growing like never before! We are excited to use what we have been blessed with to honor Christ.

In addition, GCU has more students on campus than ever before! Our vibrant community continues to grow and flourish. We are thankful that our student body continues to grow each year!

At GCU, we are also thankful for the opportunity to serve the community. Through Local Outreach and Global Outreach, we can share God’s love with others and make disciples in our community and across the world.

Most importantly, at GCU, we are blessed with the opportunity to foster a Christian community where students, staff and faculty can live out their faith. As the university continues to grow and find success, GCU will stay committed to its biblically rooted mission. We understand that all of our blessings come from God, so we strive to honor Him in all we do.

Last but not least, the GCU Blogs Network would like to thank all of our readers. Without your support, we would not be where we are today! We are thankful for our growth so far and are looking forward to the upcoming year.

This Thanksgiving, we encourage you to spend time with your loved ones. Reflect on the Lord’s blessings in your life and thank Him for all that He has done. He is good and merciful, and most importantly, He loves us as His children. Have a blessed holiday! Happy Thanksgiving!
