Computer information systems major

IT manager at the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (Des Plaines, Ill.)

I liked that the computer information systems program at CUC was laid out for me, but I still had flexibility in selecting and scheduling my classes to suit me. This program led me to where I wanted to be—working in data systems analysis or computer networking. 

One of the ways I stayed connected to campus as a commuter was by having a campus job, working in the Undergraduate Admission Office. I also liked to take a break from classes by spending time in the Cougar Den, hanging out with my friends and playing pool. Plus, commuters feel at home at CUC because the University provides events just for them during the school year, like commuter breakfasts/brunches and taking students to sports games in downtown Chicago.
