Small, Private Christian university. Great professors! Small campus and limited activities on campus for students.

The school is great if you are seeking to get a truly Christian college education. It is not great if you are looking for a true "college experience". The food is bad, and I mean really bad. The social life at Cairn is barely existent, and the athletics program is extremely sub-par. However, the professors are AMAZING. The closeness I've been able to experience with my professors is extremely rewarding. They know my name, know when I'm having a bad day, etc, and are always there to help.

Cairn University is one of the best decision I have ever made. The faculty and staff are genuinely interested and involved in the students' lives, desiring that they succeed and honor the Lord in every way. The student body is a family, encouraging one another and holding each other accountable. The classes are designed for interaction and growth, looking at every topic through the lens of the Bible. This does not make the education biased, because the professors are intentional about teaching accurately, but ensuring that there is a connection or comparison to the Christian worldview.
