This university is great to make good relationships with friends and professors, however I feel like it's too small. There are not a lot of stores nearby and students are so little

I really love this school. The atmosphere is really amazing and I love being in a Christ-centered environment. My only problem is that it doesn't have as many opportunities as other schools do.

Cairn University has been a tremendous blessing in my life. From the Christ-centered values and education to the personable and hardworking professors, there is little that I would change about this school. It is small and community-focused. While there may not be a TON of variety in events, clubs, and studies, the students and faculty work hard at making Cairn a loving and warm community.
