Grand Canyon University Gets Free Mass. Campus
And that's what GCU is banking on when it comes to establishing itself in the Northeast region, Mueller said. Because GCU cannot compete with other well-established schools such as Harvard University or Amherst College, it will seek to distinguish itself in other ways.
"We want this campus to be known as a private Christian university that is accessible to all socio-economic classes of Americans," Mueller said. "We want students who are good students and really want to experience a Christian university to consider this a place they can come regardless of whether or not their parents make a lot of money."
Green said has no plans to remain highly involved in the campus. Instead, he says he hopes to return to the campus one day and see it "vibrant with activity."
"I would hope … that kids [will come] here from all over the place and [get] a strong Christian education with a strong biblical worldview that will have an impact D.L. Moody would have envisioned," he said.
