Every Grand Canyon University Honors College student has had their eye on an exclusive internship at some point during their college career. Most students, however, are not aware of all of the free resources GCU, and specifically the Honors College, has to offer their students.

This Fall, GCU’s Digital Design Typography Class had an opportunity to experience setting wood type to print on a letterpress proof press. They were able to fold and stitch their own binding for their semester sketchbooks.

Have you ever heard of positive psychology? It is the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive. It has three pillars which include: positive experiences, positive individual traits and positive institutions. It is important to understand these emotions to understand the contentment with the past, happiness in the present and hope for the future.
There are many activities that a psychologist can do to help their client, depending on their situation and mental health. However, these exercises can be used to help anyone with their self-esteem and mental health and will be able to positively affect them in many ways.

GCU students are starting to stress about tests and many freshmen are wondering how they are going to survive finals week, let alone the rest of the school year. Freshman year can be tough for many students, but the #AskGCU team set out to see what advice they could get from students around campus.

The smallest distance between two points is a straight line– at least that’s what I learned in math. Unfortunately, life is not as simple when it comes to achieving a goal. That is what I learned during my graduate school application process.

“Pray continually.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:17
If you grew up in a Christian home, one of the first things your parents probably instilled in you about your faith was the importance of prayer. They probably made you close your eyes, fold your hands and bow your head, right?
But what is prayer really? Do we have to close our eyes and fold our hands? When should we pray and what should we be praying for? The Bible has a lot to say about prayer and what role it should play in the lives of Christians.

When walking with Jesus, every day turned into a learning experience for his disciples. They were learning who Jesus was, his person, his mission and his way. Jesus taught them through parables, miracles, object lessons and sermons. He also taught them through his daily interaction with people, ordinary people, forgotten people and people of power and influence. As a good teacher, Jesus wanted his disciples to have a clear understanding of his person and teachings and to embody those truths in their own lives. All the efforts of Jesus in teaching his disciples would have been in vain if they did not make the truth their own. As disciples of Jesus today, we too are learning to walk with Jesus every day, to know who he is and what is his way. Every day, Jesus has one inescapable question for us.
