Cincinnati Christian University offers as good an education as any other Bible college within the Restoration Movement tradition. We are blessed with great professors who are very personable and interested in the student's development beyond the classroom. Although there may be occasional frustrations with administration, these issues are often resolved in a matter of days. The current president is dedicated to improving the student experience, and there are exciting changes on the horizon as new athletic programs are being added and current degree programs are being expanded. This school has a long history of producing some of the most influential Christian leaders in the world. But what really sets CCU apart from other Bible colleges is its passion for the city of Cincinnati itself. It ministers to a struggling community in Price Hill. Many of the faculty are actively invested in the city, and students are encouraged to serve the community. I am proud of this school because it takes advantage of the urban environment, something that many other schools cannot or do not do.

Overall, my experience at school has been outstanding. I can clearly see that all the staff and many of the students are eager to serve and assist you in any way they can. The teaching church program, a clinical internship with ministers partnered with CCU sets this school apparently from others. Some issues however would be the recent changes in the schools values and sevice curriculum, as I am afraid of the doctrine becoming watered down or trying to be tailored to one's pleasure. This does not reflect that Christ is absent from CCU however. Christ is at work here to bring glory in our fallen world today.

The Buildings Are OLD, but the Social Atmosphere Is Great! The dorms were obviously built when the school was founded. The rooms are not suite style, like most campuses, and the rooms are pretty small. But on the other hand the social aspect way surpasses expectation. The RAs and RDs are amazing and are totally there whenever you need them.
