It doesn't matter if you ask a long-time professor, recent graduate, passionate alum, or a fresh-eyed first-year student. Pick a member of the Grand View community at random and ask him or her what it means to be a Viking, and you will most likely get a one-word answer: Family.

Housed in a city unlike any other, our students gain an education unlike any other. The whole city is our classroom, and our students emerge not just with a diploma, but with experiences that could only happen at Grand View University. Whether you want to follow in the footsteps of giants or forge a new path, this is the place to start.
