“As soon as I stepped on campus, I felt like I was part of a huge family. I am more introverted so I was worried about how hard it would be for me to push myself and make friends freshman year, but I ended up making some of my best friends at the Welcome Week events. Another way I instantly felt welcome at GCU was by joining different clubs and taking advantage of local outreach opportunities.”Madeline Brinker, Homeschool Student, GCU Class of 2021
