Although no injuries were reported, the new dormitory, Canyon Hall, sustained considerable window damage. Nearly all of the four dozen windows facing southeast on the dorm’s eastern wing were blown out and required boarding. Staffers and volunteers worked into the night to perform patchwork repairs.

Staff, Students Respond to Health Center Survey

May 18, 2010 / by / 0 Comment

The staff at the Cooke Health and Wellness Center wants to thank those who participated in a recent online survey and shared their comments, ideas and recommendations. The survey’s results will help the Center’s staff explore better ways to serve Grand Canyon University’s ground-campus population. The survey was open to the entire GCU community. Of the respondents, 60 percent were staff and 40 percent were students. Major concerns expressed included the Center’s hours of operation and wait times. The Center is primarily a teaching facility. GCU’s student nurse practitioners fulfill necessary requirements as they serve the University. This can increase your wait time. The Center is free for employees, and we recently removed the co-pay for all students with insurance. We appreciate your patience with the teaching component of our facility, and we are working to improve that experience. The survey results included the following: • 44 percent of respondents visited the Center at least once in the last year. • 57 percent said they would use the Center as a primary care facility. • 38 percent said they did not know the Center’s office hours. • 72 percent said they would visit a naturopathic physician, if available. • 61 […]

Purple Reigns on ‘A’ Mountain in Tempe

March 09, 2010 / by / 1 Comment

Apparently a few stealth Antelopes were at work late into last evening (or early this morning), marking a new state rivalry: the (Christian) Antelopes vs. the Sun Devils. The mission: Put a fresh coat of GCU Purple on “A Mountain,” which overlooks the Arizona State University campus in Tempe, just in time for the Antelopes to face the Devils tonight in a non-conference baseball game at ASU’s Packard Stadium. Rumor has it the clandestine operation was unexpected, as the A Mountain is typically only “protected” during the ASU/UA rivalry. Perpetrators surely will be held responsible at tonight’s game, as the Channel 3 helicopter (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sChX7Z1dyA) did a fly-over this morning, notifying ASU fans of the violation. Watch out for Antelope fans with purple shoes. ASU hosts GCU at 6:30 tonight, and discounted tickets are still available for $7 from the Events Office on the GCU campus. Group seating will be behind the Antelopes’ dugout. Call (602) 639-7587 for information.
