|Letter from the Director
This year it was announced that the ‘Lopes will be moving up to NCAA Division I status (for all teams) and joining the Western Athletic Conference beginning in the fall of 2013! Our teams have made a wonderful showing thus far in the 2012-2013 sports year, and GCU hopes to repeat as Learfield Cup Division II winner this year.
Our newest tradition of alumni tailgates before home basketball games continues to grow and gain momentum, with an average of 120 alumni attending the pre-game festivities. We invite you to come out and join your fellow ‘Lopes for a great bite to eat and some fast-paced basketball action as we watch our new head coach "Thunder" Dan Majerle coach the ‘Lopes in their first season in Division I. Alumni can purchase season tickets in the alumni section, complete with alumni promotions during most games, by calling the alumni office at 602-639-6418.
Drop by the Alumni Center (Building 1, Room 101) when you are on campus! Hope to see you soon!
