This week on #AskGCU, Julian Oliver and his team set out to prove that GCU is indeed a real school. Despite its small size, GCU is a real and reputable university. It was founded in 1949 and has been growing ever since! In fact, the university recently got approved for non-profit status again.
The #AskGCU team, however, found some different ways to prove that GCU is a real school. First, they looked for the GCU sign, labeling our campus as Grand Canyon University. The sign itself says we’re real!
Next, they asked some students both on the street and in their classes about the validity of GCU. All the students agreed that GCU is really real. They were there! How could it not be real?
After talking to students, Julian went to the baseball clubhouse, where the team looked at the history of GCU’s baseball team. The history alone proved to the crew that GCU must be real.
Finally, the team went straight to the source. They asked GCU’s beloved mascot, Thunder the Antelope, if he thought GCU was a real school. He, of course, believes it is. Thunder loves his school and wouldn’t want to be cheering on any other school.
In the end, the team found that GCU really is a real school and one that students and mascots alike love to call home. Go lopes!
