CCU is a great University for people of any faith. In addition to the core theology/bible classes, CCU is an accredited University and they offer multiple programs for students to major in such as Psychology, Organizational Leadership and Business Management to name a few.
The school has been historically conservative and was founded during the Restoration Movement however, they are taking steps and have made strides in becoming less conservative and more open to the idea of people from different backgrounds.
Most notable for me, the professors and the faculty are more than willing to extend grace if you ask.
Review Cincinnati Christian University
My experience with Cincinnati Christian University has been a pleasant one overall. The education that you will receive is a quality education and the professors are nothing but caring and supportive. Campus life creates many different opportunities for the student body to be engaged with each other and have a fun time on campus. Worship services are always an enjoyable experience to be filled with God and listen to his words. The one down side to campus is the dorms and food. The dorms themselves are normal dorms and have nothing wrong with them, but being a christian university prevents students from being able to openly listen to music or watch movies that have profanity. There is also the food which is below average tasting and there are some variety that can be had, but there are only so many options that one dining hall can provide. It is easy to predict what you will be eating from week to week which can become unfortunate.
The school excels in providing an excellent degree program for Biblical Studies, beyond that and the amazing view of downtown Cincinnati, there isn't really anything spectacular about this school. It's comparable to many other small, Restoration-movement affiliated Christian Universities. As for anything negative, communication on campus between the administration and the students is often abysmal.
