The Office of Alumni Relations' goal is to help you stay involved with what is going on at Grand Canyon University (GCU). From campus events, like our annual homecoming celebration or free alumni tailgates before basketball games, to chapter events taking place across the country, you can get involved with fellow GCU alumni. We hope to see you at an event soon!
The Office of Alumni Relations sponsors a variety of events throughout the year that help you get involved and keep connected with our growing campus community. Stop by one of our upcoming events, or give back to the university by volunteering at one of our events for current students.
