Grand Canyon University was founded as a nonprofit institution in the wake of World War II. In 1949, Arizona Southern Baptists felt the need to establish a faith-based institution that would allow local Baptists the opportunity to obtain a Bachelors or Masters Degree without going back east to get a Baptist education in Texas, Oklahoma or Missouri. Over 60 years later Grand Canyon University stands as one of the Top 10 Christian colleges.
In January of 2004 Grand Canyon University was sold to California-based Significant Education, LLC, making it the first for-profit Christian college in the United States. After doing so, the campus received tremendous updates as it underwent a $150 million renovation. Now the campus boasts an aquatics center complete with a pool and hot tub, café, 500-bed dormitory, 125-classroom facility, and 5,000 seat event center which will soon be the home to the Grand Canyon University’s basketball teams.
Students who enjoy warm weather lots of sunshine will enjoy the weather that Arizona provides nearly year round. There is also plenty to do on campus and students will enjoy the seasoned educational tenure that provides insight into their respective fields of study, like medical imaging for instance.
