CSU is a great school for nursing and education students. Otherwise, they have a limited amount of majors and minors. They don't offer French or Linguistics, which are my personal desired majors. This school is financially friendly to undocumented students (including DACA students) and facilitates access to a higher-level education. Without this aid I wouldn't have been able to attend college in the first place. The staff is incredibly involved in your academics and wants to see you succeed. Studying abroad is highly encouraged at Stritch, and there are many opportunities (even for students with DACA).

I chose Cardinal Stritch University because it was a smaller school. And because it is smaller, professors are able to focus more on students and help them more outside of class if needed. This university is also very welcoming and friendly. I feel very comfortable here. There is many clubs and organizations to join as well. For a semester, I was in a program called urban fellows, which was work study. I was placed at a day care center and that was a great experience for me because I want to be a teacher.

I personally enjoy being in an environment where I do not have to sit in a class with over 50 plus students. This is the main reason I chose Cardinal Stritch. The teachers here are actually able to respond and work with any student one on one when students need help. To me this is something that most public colleges are not able to offer students. Then when some students start falling behind they usually tend to give up and stop trying in school.
