Sports management major, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Joshie, is it important to you to be at a faith-based university?

I chose CUC because I wanted a private university that offered my major and where I could be involved in track. Being at a private school is important to me because I want to keep my faith in a good place in my life. At CUC I never forget about my faith—I'm surrounded by it, which is a positive thing. There are a lot of Christian leadership groups on campus, and with the track team, we have devotions and keep God in the center of things in our attitude towards competition.

What are are some benefits of CUC's location?

I like that CUC is close to Chicago, which gives students networking opportunities with different organizations, sports teams and business people. One of the biggest benefits of being a CUC student is the professors and their experiences, like Professor Tyler Jones who was an NBA D-League coach. We also go on field trips for our classes, to places like Toyota Park [soccer stadium]. The sports management field trips are very helpful because we get to meet with representatives of companies and get information about how we could work for them in the future.
