Ethan Driffill

I was able to do a paid internship at the Nature Conservancy in downtown Chicago. I loved every second of this internship and didn't want it to end.

Jade Nichols

The communication professors at CUC don't just teach the subject. They are also out in the field practicing it in their own lives, which is really great.

Natalie Hamley

CUC has everything I wanted in a school—small class sizes, an excellent education program and opportunities for me to grow in my faith, plus being able to be involved in music.

Justin Rink

CUC is a place where I'm able to grow, both in my faith and as a servant leader helping others succeed and find their way in life.
