I have truly enjoyed my time at CUC. It is very good school that really focuses on each student. The professors challenge the students and assure that they are successful.

I am not satisfied with my options at Concordia and would have chosen another school had I known.

It's a small school and I love that about it but some professors are hard to adjust to. It doesn't offer the exact program I want but I do make the best of it, most of the professors in my program are really good. But the school is way too expensive. I am struggling to be able to attend here without racking up debt. This makes it hard to enjoy other things.
