Tyrique Thomas

There are a lot of opportunities here to be a leader and to grow as a leader, and it's up to you if you take advantage of that. You can pretty much dip your hand into whatever you want at CUC. 

Ana Corral-Vizcarra

I am on the cheer team, which helps me make friends and feel connected to the campus community. It helps me feel like I make a difference for CUC.

Elizabeth Cyrwus

CUC's community and the location are always relaxing. When my lacrosse teammates and I do study table together and we get stressed, we say, "team walk," and we all just walk around the neighborhood together. I really love that!

Benjamin Heinz

There are so many really great spiritual role models here, whether or not they are students or professors or something beyond that. I've built up some wonderful relationships with professors, and they are really encouraging in everything I do.
