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.

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!

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!
