Brian Harris

With CUC's Chicago-area location and the connections our professors have, there are so many opportunities for internships, meeting new people and networking.

Krista Pojero

I've been able to get hands-on experience as an education major. My first semester at CUC I got right into a classroom to observe, which was really helpful.

The community and the experience that CUC provides me go beyond the tangible. It impacts my faith and gives me the opportunity to learn from others.
