Arizona's Grand Canyon University looking to expand

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -

 Administrators at Grand Canyon University say they're seeking bids from Tempe, Gilbert, Mesa, Queen Creek and Chandler for another campus.
   The Arizona Republic reports that GCU also may build elsewhere in the southwest such as Las Vegas and Albuquerque, N.M.
   Officials with the private Christian college said a growing number of students from the Mesa area attend GCU's main campus in west Phoenix, but most find the commute too difficult.
   The 63-year-old university went public with stock traded on Nasdaq in 2008 and has been expanding its campus since then.
   A deal that would have allowed GCU to move into a vacant campus in Massachusetts earlier this year fell through because the land was too remote and underdeveloped.
