Slideshow: Tour of New College of Arts and Sciences Building

April 18, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

About 60 GCU faculty and staff got a sneak peek of the College of Arts and Sciences building on Wednesday. Charlie Sirokman, project director for campus development, led a tour of the four-story building, which is about 50 percent complete. Each floor has an open-air breezeway with elevators that will separate offices on the east end of the floor and classrooms and labs on the west end. The first floor – which already is painted and has sheetrock in place — will include a chapel, offices for Spiritual Life and Christian Studies, a staff lounge and classrooms. The most distinctive feature is an open-air cross within the brickwork on the southeastern corner of the chapel. “We call it the cornerstone of campus off the Promenade,” Sirokman said. A cross pattern also will be visible in the carpeting and ceiling clouds of the chapel, and a corner section of the wall will be made of glass and lead to a multipurpose garden-type gathering area where the cornerstone cross is located. The second floor will have offices for Arts and Sciences and classrooms. The third floor features more Arts and Sciences classrooms, nursing skill labs, simulation labs and classrooms. And the fourth floor will have […]

Is It Hot Enough Yet for This? Does Anyone Care?

April 17, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

Warmer weather brought about a little water slide merriment on the northwestern corner of the intramural field on Monday afternoon. The event, organized by the fifth-floor residential assistants at Prescott Hall, was open to anyone who wasn’t afraid to get a little wet. “The RAs usually plan events at night, but these particular girls just wanted to do something a little different,” said Nicole Clifton, residential director for Prescott Hall. The first 100-degree day of 2012 could be on the way this weekend.

Slideshow: Tempe-Peoria Interoffice Basketball Game

February 24, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

Photos by Jak Keyser, Jerry Bauer and Tim Winzeler The Tempe Educators upset the Peoria Pride, 24-23, in last Wednesday night’s interoffice exhibition game at halftime of the men’s basketball game in GCU Arena. Some of our impressions of a surprisingly intense matchup, which began with Peoria applying a full-court pressure defense: ● Best shirts: Tempe. Its players wore black with only the white block letters “TEMPE” on the front, as if they were representing the city itself. Nothing said “bring it” like that. ● Best fans: Peoria. The purple P’s seen throughout the Arena were a terrific way to show support, like something you’d see at an NBA game. ● Best sign: Peoria. “Hey Tempe, Your Game Needs an Education” was clever.

A Briton Claims the Crown of Mr. GCU

February 03, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

Toga-clad students, including the nursing delegation from Chanchung, China, packed North Gym to capacity last night for the annual Mr. GCU pageant. Nothing could prepare our Chinese visitors for what they were about to see, but they jumped into the festivities with glee. “Mr. GCU is very inspiring,” said Pastor Tim Griffin, GCU Dean of Students. “But kinda creepy at times.” It wouldn’t be an ASGCU event without a heavy dose of lip-syncing, cross-dressing and man flesh. These are some of the best and brightest young men on campus and those in attendance will never be able to look at them the same way again.
