The College of liberal Arts is great. They have intelligent Professors, but other than the faculty and a few staff the administration does not seem to care about the ground students. This school is a business and they want a profit and that is fine. Therefore do not come to GCU thinking that you will receive a top education, because of three reasons.(1) We have great professors but this school does not try to keep them. GCU is known for letting very good professors go. The College of Liberal Arts does not even have a Dean. COLA has not had one for almost a year. So if you want to get a degree with professors that can mentor you and help you complete your degree does not look at gcu. (2) This school stresses online classes. The ground students are so disconnected that most of the time we do not have enough students for our respected majors resulting in classes being dropped. Moreover, GCU has had major problems with programs changing several times over. I personally have had to change my major three times because they dropped the first two. (3) The online makes so much money that the Ground students are ignored. We do not matter therefore we feel as if we do not have a voice. I do not recomend GCU.
