    Great for these types of students

    This is a perfect place for older, returning students that are already employed and out in the workforce; GGU offers evening and online classes available that can accommodate working schedules.

    Tips for prospective students

    Online education is not easier than traditional in-person classes/lessons. Cyber-classes are only more convenient but are harder to learn and interact within. Also, the online courses are accelerated, each 8 week course covers 16 weeks of material!

    Bang for the buck

    It's expensive but so are higher education costs in general, so it is comparable and competitive with other universities.

    Am enjoying being here

    Mostly I like the school, peer & teacher community and enjoy being here. However, I have had some conflicts with students which I attribute to personality differences. I have also had conflict with 2 different teachers

    Am learning a lot

    I'm definitely learning a lot at GGU.

    Campus Safety

    Entrances are few and are monitored by campus security. Being in the big city requires all to be aware of their surroundings on and off campus as no school can guarantee the absence of theft or physical attacks. Fortunately, the statistics provided by campus security demonstrates very rare occasions of criminal activity on or around campus.

    Greek Life

    Don't think it exists....

    Clubs and Activities

    Have not really explored said clubs or activities but have glanced at the weekly emails that advertise a variety of beneficial services pertaining to job searches and personal enrichment.

    Great for these types of students

    Working adults with or without children; JUCO transfers; those seeking online classes; and those that seek a more formal and adult atmosphere

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Haven't attended GGU to stumble upon unusual traditions but if they do not exist on campus, create your own!

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition costs rival that of UC and CSU's within a 20 mile radius. Keep your grades up and enjoy the substantial discount given by GGU.

    What to do for fun

    Once again, fun is subjective. A plethora of nearby diverse bars and restaurants allow for a good time at just about any time of the day.

    Food and Dining

    Beyond the mediocre cafe found on campus dining and nightlife is literally steps away in all directions. Highly suggest to take advantage of the amenities so close by.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms to speak of.

    Academic Rigor

    The level of Rigor is predicated upon the individual, of which, differs from student to student.

    Tips for prospective students

    Utilize the resources that GGU offers and truly enjoy the close proximity to transit, nightlife, and the visual and economic inspiration that SF offers.

    In three sentences

    GGU's tremendous accomodation for working students allows for a streamlined and time efficient path to degree attainment. With professors from the field of study, GGU students are exposed to real world experiences rather than the rarely applicable gibberish found in textbooks. The small class sizes really enable the student to approach and work with the professor.
