The library has redesigned its website.  The new site includes all of the links from the original site organized into columns on the front page.  New features to the site include a link to chat with a librarian and a Twitter feed right on the home page.

GCU Online Math Teacher Visits From N.J.

May 18, 2010 / by / 4 Comments

Jerry Tuttle commuted to the home office on Tuesday, May 18, and the trip was about 2,000 miles one way. Tuttle, 60, of New Jersey, is an online math teacher for GCU. He planned a stop in Phoenix as part of a business trip to Los Angeles so that he could tour GCU’s ground campus. He specifically requested that he have an opportunity for his photo to be taken with Thunder, the Antelopes’ mascot. “I wanted to come and see if there really is a campus,” Tuttle said jokingly. “I’ve always wanted to do this. Unfortunately, I picked a time when the students aren’t here.” Tuttle made the most of it, stopping at the campus bookstore to buy a GCU polo shirt, meeting administrators and visiting about the classes he is teaching. “People have been amazingly friendly to me,” he said. “They’re surprised I’m here. For a big university, the campus is small and intimate.” < Tuttle grew up in New York City and works as an actuary in a building overlooking Ground Zero in Manhattan. He has a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Queens College and a master’s degree in applied mathematics from the University of Virginia. He began […]

GCU’s Class of 2010 Forged Connections

May 03, 2010 / by / 1 Comment

At Grand Canyon University’s commencement, it’s not uncommon for classmates to see each other for the first time but to celebrate as if they’ve known each other for years. Bonds form quickly online when busy people are pursuing a common goal, as Shelley Lynch of Boston, Mass., and Jessie Chua of Phoenix, Ariz., discovered. The women embraced like old friends before receiving master’s degrees in nursing education on Saturday, May 1, at Chase Field in downtown Phoenix. GCU awarded nearly 6,000 degrees to graduate and undergraduate students in both online and ground-campus programs in Nursing and Health Sciences, Education, Business and Liberal Arts. The University also presented an honorary doctorate in business management to former Southwest Airlines President Colleen C. Barrett. This year, Lynch and Chua were part of a practicum class of 18 led by College of Nursing Associate Professor Pat Shannon that also included students from New Hampshire, Florida, Texas and Utah. Lynch works in the intensive-care unit at two hospitals in the Boston area, and Chua is a pediatric nurse at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. They connected over their passion for research. “I found friendship here,” Lynch said of her classmates. “You get to know people online and […]
