Harry Grimes

At CUC I’ve grown so much as a person, in my faith, my work ethic and my integrity.

Kristianna Mortera

Serving as a peer mentor is teaching me a lot about how to lead, and how to serve as a role model too.

Alexandra Privett

One of the benefits of being at a smaller school is that you won’t ever have a graduate assistant teaching your class or grading your papers.

Joe Bayer

I came here knowing next to nothing about computer programming, and now I’ll be leaving as an IEEE Chicago Xtreme 24-Hour Programming Champion.
