Small, Private Christian university. Great professors! Small campus and limited activities on campus for students.
Cairn university is an excellent place to learn. Going to cairn is one of the best decisions have ever made. The faculty and professors are kind and are ready to assist students to achieve their academic goal. Moreover, there is no discrimination at Cairn, instead there is a feeling of acceptance.
