Alumni Chapters

Grand Canyon University (GCU) alumni groups, or chapters are created in specific geographic areas by alumni who want to share their GCU pride and get to know other GCU graduates. With more than 120,000 alumni in our network, the GCU community is growing rapidly. Explore our current alumni chapters and fill out an inquiry form if you are interested in joining an alumni chapter or starting a chapter in your area.

There are alumni groups in several cities across the country, with more starting every year. Chapter meetings are a chance for alumni from all majors to get together, socialize, relax and network. Some chapters have hosted game-watching parties, while others have attended Major League Baseball games as a group. Others have taken the opportunity to give back by participating in community service projects.
