Undergraduate students choose Concordia University Chicago because CUC meets their goals for:
Practical preparation for a satisfying career
Hands-on experiences that qualify them for the best graduate programs
Critical thinking and communication skills that last a lifetime
But it’s not just about the destination—they also choose CUC so they can be inspired during their collegiate career and beyond. Read what our students are saying about CUC...
Here at CUC, I get more individualized training and a personalized educational experience because of the small class sizes. I believe that if I would have gone to a bigger university, I would not have gotten such a one-one-one connection with my professors.
What’s been great about CUC is the opportunity to be involved and be a leader in so many different areas.
There are always events for students to get involved in and meet new people. There are spiritual life groups on campus like Ministry with Concordia, Ministry with the World, and Ministry with Chicago. I’ve even participated in the Urban Plunge.
Every day there's an opportunity for my faith to grow here in some way — it's a matter of whether you take advantage of it.
I value the many opportunities to try something new, from handing out water at the Chicago Marathon for my Fitness and Wellness class to volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club of West Cook County with my freshman Freedom and Responsibility class.
I’m inspired to learn because of the love the professors have for what they’re doing. They are so passionate about what they are teaching and it makes you want to learn more. It’s clear that they’re doing exactly what they want to be doing.
