Dehlia, how does CUC inspire faith?

My faith is inspired just by the people I meet on campus.

Can you explain?

There are always events for students to get involved in and meet new people. There are spiritual life groups on campus like Ministry with Concordia, Ministry with the World, and Ministry with Chicago. I’ve even participated in the Urban Plunge.

My faith especially has been affirmed being at this Christian school. Everything I’ve learned at CUC is going to be the foundation for who I’ll be as an adult. The values I have that make me who I am have been confirmed and established here. I know a lot of young people my age may stray away from their faith in college, but it’s been just the opposite for me here at Concordia University Chicago.
