What GCU Students Love About the Honors College

Professional Writing and Psychology, Honors College

The Honors College at Grand Canyon University is notable for its love and dedication to its students. Here’s how our motivated and driven honors students feel about being a part of this close-knit community.

Jessica Symmes, a junior in the nursing program, says that after touring GCU and learning more about the Honors College, “I knew that I had found a diamond right in my backyard.” She says that she made her final decision to join the community when she met the people: “I really have never met a more driven and encouraging staff than those who work within the GCU Honors College.” Our honors staff serve as wonderful role-models as our students develop over the course of their college experience.

An Honors Alum, finance and economics major Josh McGuire best appreciated the environment of friendliness and comradery within the Honors College, which he had the opportunity to experience first-hand as a project management intern. He says that the sense of opportunity and advancement present within the community is rare and valuable during your college years.
