March 08, 2010 / by / 0 Comment

The Phoenix campus of Grand Canyon University took center stage on Friday, March 5, for a town hall with U.S. Senators John McCain of Arizona and Scott Brown of Massachusetts. McCain, the Republican Party’s presidential nominee in 2008, is seeking re-election in 2010 to a fifth term in the Senate. His representatives approached the university about serving as the site for the event, which attracted a crowd of 1,500 to Antelope Gymnasium for remarks by the two lawmakers on issues such as jobs, health care, federal spending and national defense. Brown, the newly elected senator to the seat of the late Edward M. Kennedy, sought and received McCain’s support in his recent campaign. His upset victory in January made him the first Republican since 1972 to be elected to the Senate from Massachusetts. “It was the election heard around the world,” McCain said of Brown’s triumph. Media outlets such as NBC News, the Boston Globe and the Associated Press dispatched reporters, production people and satellite trucks to cover the event at GCU, along with all four of the major television stations from metropolitan Phoenix. Kelly O’Donnell of “The NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams” reported live from the campus promenade […]

GCU Hosts First ROTC Day

November 24, 2009 / by / 0 Comment

The landing of a Black Hawk MEDEVAC on the lawn in front of the CONHS building set the pace for GCU’s semiannual ROTC Day on November 20. Our cadets hosted junior cadets from local high schools. More than 35 students from several local high schools visited campus to learn about the college’s ROTC program, available scholarships and career opportunities in military service. According to GCU Recruiting Operations Officer CPT Todd Balash, ROTC Day is an event that highlights the college’s program and provides an opportunity for potential cadets to connect with GCU cadets. “This is a chance for high school students to get to know the life of a cadet, from an actual cadet,” says Balash. “There is a misconception that ROTC consumes a student’s life. Our cadets can share their experiences so others can get a better idea of what will be expected of them.” ROTC Day connects with GCU’s military nursing program. The Black Hawk and HMMWV on display are vehicles they will likely ride in or operate. The “sim man” is a medical dummy that allowed visitors to practice common medical procedures they would encounter, such as inserting IVs, treating wounds and assessing injuries. The helicopter provided […]
