Um...GCU is owned and run by Mormons.Quite BrightEducation
Um...GCU is owned and run by Mormons. They don't want that getting out since the U. Of Phoenix - also Mormon-owned - was successfully sued for discrimination against non-Mormons. The LDS "church" is known for purposefully hiding the fact that they own certain companies. Mormons are NOT Christians; they are a cult. They teach their followers that any other faith is evil and that non-Mormons are sinners. They teach HATE. Mormons teach their female followers that they should not work outside the home; their jobs are to please their husbands have as many children as possible. The LDS church convinces its men that in the afterlife they will become the god and owner of their own planet and will have many, many wives. It's a made-up religion, founded in the 1800s by a simple mortal named Joseph Smith, who was a con artist and crook. He died in a gun fight while serving time in jail. The Mormons tell their people that J. Smith was a martyr. He wrote "doctrines" which he claimed were told to him by God himself. Those doctrines all contradict each other, but the LDS church reads them and follows them to a T. Mormons are ALL about money and will lie, steal, cheat, or do whatever to make money. Money. Money. Money. Trust me. Stay far, far away from anything owned by Mormons. They own banks, radio stations, schools, and even

This school is definetly sub par compared toBrightNursing
This school is definetly sub par compared to even a community college. If you are looking for a great education this is not the school for you, but if you are looking for a degree that looks good than GCU is for you. The teachers DO NOT teach, you are expected to learn all on your own. All in all, honestly I wish I would have gone to EMCC than transfered to UofA because I feel as if I have wasted my money here. The education is just atrocious and most of the students that attend here are absolutely obnoxious! Don't believe me just try coming to this school for a week!

Besides the professors and the admissions reps, everyQuite BrightReligion/Religious
Besides the professors and the admissions reps, every member of GCU staff has been rude and self-absorbed. My finance/academic counselor has changed almost every semester that I have attended, the housing department has tried to kick me out of my dorm multiple times claiming that my finances are not met, which would cause me to lose scholarship money. Absolutely do not try to get married while attending GCU. It will mess up all of your schooling information, and GCU is entirely unhelpful once your information is out of sync.
