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!

Mix, mingle and meet new friends in a fun, family-friendly and casual environment at one of downtown Phoenix's newest hot spots. Unwind from a week of work and join local Lopes, family and friends during the happiest hours of the day and enjoy an appetizer on us! Kids are welcome.

More about The Park: Defined as "an area devoted to a specific purpose", The Park cultivates a sense of community. The Park is an indoor beer garden and live music venue. It's an outdoor-turned-indoor community concept with elements of a park such as nature inspired dining space with communal tables and high-end lounge seating, green foliage, tree-canopied garden and a nightlife playground. On a rotating basis, the menu will represent some of the best street food flavors from all over the world! Phoenix locals and visitors can savor a different culinary experience during each visit.
