    I chose CUC because I wanted a private university that offered my major and where I could be involved in track. Being at a private school is important to me because I want to keep my faith in a good place in my life.

    I like that CUC is smaller and people are really connected here. The professors spend time talking with us about our interests to help us find our path in social work and help us with internships.

    When I visited campus I really liked it. Everyone I met was really friendly, and I didn't feel like an outsider.

    You really get to know your classmates and your professors, and they get to know you. Professors care about you and really want you to do well.
