I love CCU because I am able to work and have my faith implemented into the curriculum. What better way to stay focused on God and advance my career. CCU has provided a way to learn and serve God at the same time. CCU has encouraged me to strive for excellence.

The professors are incredible. They are tough, but it it only because they believe that you are capable of completing the work to excellence. The course work, while easy, is also challenging. The 4 day week helps out very much and allows enough time for homework and studying. The small campus community is actually decent. You do not feel engulfed by the amount of people around but you also do not feel like there are only 2 other people on campus with you. It is a solid amount and you can find your place easily. Campus living is alright. The food is not awful and there are several options to choose from. Housing is okay. I lived on campus for 3 years and felt that I could not bring issues to the residence staff without being blamed. So that was a bummer. The actual dorms were decent. Apartment style is really cool because you can have your own kitchen.
