"I’m a student right now and if I didn’t only have a year and a half left I would have transferred. They don’t care about the students they care about money. Things are always broken, a mess, or you have to wait over 45 minutes in line in order to eat because they don’t have an actual dining center. Those who are supposed to help you don’t and public security tickets you whenever they want and very happily. My degree programs professors I have lived but some of the electives I have had horrible teachers. The living situation wherever you are is a mess and an absolute headache and when you want to bring up a problem they just send you to another and another until nobody can help you and all is lost. Don’t go here they have too many students for their capacity."

"I am hesitant to write this review, because I don’t want it to seem as though I am bashing all majors or suggesting that all of the Professors don’t make classes engaging. In fact, quite the opposite, from my experiences on campus. I graduated top of my class and participated in clubs on campus and am currently in a grad school. But, be warned of the level of difficulty of classes. My major did not challenge me. Granted, there may have been 1 or 2 semi-difficult assignments but in a 4 year degree, that’s a joke. Those classes do not prepare you for the rigorous course loads of grad school and most of the students that end up being successful are those who are already knowledgeable of the material or study on their own. As for clubs, normally I would encourage you to participate, but keep in mind some people make these clubs toxic. A lot of people at GCU tend to act like they are still in high school, and obviously that can cause problems. Beyond that, student services can be good (luck of the draw with what SSA or SSC or whatever they call it now) that you get. Good luck choosing schools, and make sure to choose one that prepares you for the real world."

"Honestly, this school is fantastic if you are willing to put in the work and effort to learn as much as you can. This school focuses more on the practical application of degrees rather than unnecessary classes which focus on work loads. Study hard and you will do well."

"I felt that I was targeted for being secular and liberal. I had an experience where a teacher told me that the Bible was more important than the U.S. Constitution. I was in a class that the teacher told the class that science has never proved anything."

"The student body is so conservative to the point where it's practically full of bigots. What's worse is that no one has a clue what they're talking about because they're only basing their political views off of their parents opinions. In addition, many students are lazy, stupid, and want their hand to be held when they do something irresponsible that is completely their own fault. I am amazed at the amount of professors that are willing to accommodate a student's blatant negligence. GCU is FOX news University."
