The Lope Is Leaping, The Havoc is Cheering, And It's Lopes Up For The Last Time

Lopes Up and Lopes Out!

The Lope Is Leaping, The Havoc is Cheering, And It's Lopes Up For The Last Time

With graduation just around the corner, I have been thinking a lot about my time here at GCU. I have truly enjoyed my four years here, even with the ups and downs and crazy moments. I couldn't be happier with my choice of going here. I have learned and experienced so many things during my time at GCU. I couldn't have asked for a better college experience. I will forever be proud to be a Lope!

No matter how many people crack jokes or rag on GCU, it really is a great place to be. I've had some crazy things happen during my time here, from crazy roommates to GCU getting rid of my major. Yet even through all of those crazy moments, I am still truly blessed by this school. I have made my life-long friends here, this school is where I met my best friend and I couldn't be more thankful for that. ON top of all of that, I have had some truly amazing professors, who have become great friends and mentors that I have been able to come alongside and work with.

GCU has been such a wonderful place to grow and learn who I really am and enjoying the passions that I have. From writing to worship, I have gained so much experience throughout my time here. I admire all of the people that I have met and come in contact with throughout my college experience. I have definitely learned something from all of these encounters. No matter how much I have loved and enjoyed my time here, and how much I will miss it, I am excited to move on.

College is an amazing time in your life, but I am ready to see and experience what comes next. God knows the plan that is set forth for my life and I am really excited to see where that leads me. I'm stepping out into the real world and becoming a true adult and it is a little scary, but it is also really exciting!

I will always be grateful for the time that I have spent at GCU and no matter where I go, I will always be a Lope. I could not be more thankful for GCU and all that they have brought into my life. My friends, my education and my job are all things that I truly appreciate to have gained from coming to this school. I am sad to not be a student, but I am excited to continue on and see what is next. Thank you GCU for all that you have done for me and even if we make fun of it sometimes, thank you for helping me find my purpose! I am forever grateful for this school and the experiences it has brought me. I couldn't be more proud to be a Grand Canyon University Class of 2019 graduating senior! So thanks GCU and Lopes Up and Lope Out!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
