What Our Students Are Saying

What meant the most to me about my GNU education were the small class sizes and personal relationships I was able to form with students and professors. People would follow up with me and pray with me if they knew I was struggling. I learned so much from my teachers because we really knew each other.

—Hannah Mekkes

A huge part of my decision to attend GNU was their willingness to work with my transfer credits. Because of how many credits transferred, I can take GNU classes part-time while working full-time and will graduate debt-free. This is possible because GNU is so flexible and affordable. My friends at other universities or state colleges aren’t able to pay off their tuition by working through college.

—Isabelle Breese

Attending Great Northern University helped prepare me for seminary. Coming from the standard and quality of papers I had to write at GNU, it has made my seminary work seem more doable because I am now experienced in the process of writing papers and did very similar work in undergrad.
