3 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are great...classes are extremely difficult.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: There is a great balance between in class work and lecture, and out of class assignments, papers and projects. The faculty is fantastic; they are committed and passionate to their students and their classes. There are several opportunities for internships with much aid in finding organizations to be placed.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The education department at Cornerstone is exceptional! I loved the professors that I had this semester and they had me do things that are practical and that I will actually use and need to know in the field!

5 College Freshman

Academics: Our academics are great. There's a good variety of programs to choose. Also, since CU is a Christian school classes always have a faith integration, which is great!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I love being a film major at Cornerstone University! My professors are awesome and are willing to help you almost any time outside of class. I have eaten lunch and dinner with a all of them and my other film major friends; they want to get to know us on a personal level and make it a priority. The workload in the media classes are challenging, and time consuming, but if shows what I will encounter in the field. Cornerstone is equipped with good equipment and proper software to help us advance our knowledge to be the best we can be in the film industry.
