My experience with Colorado Christian University can be summarized by the statement that I would highly recommend attending the university! I have only completed a few courses, but my experience has been nothing but positive. From the moment I received my first call from an admissions counselor all the way through enrolling and getting back in the groove of classes, all staff members and professors have been nothing but caring and helpful. I especially admire how the school incorporates a “Biblical Perspective” into every class, relating how that class related to a biblical worldview. If you are seeking a top education with high Christian values, then this school is perfect.

What I liked about CCU is that there is a good diversity of opportunities for students to participate in, a wide array of resources for students such as counseling and employment management services, and quite a few clubs and ministry opportunities for students.

What I do not like about CCU is that it can feel closed off, not very diverse, but there is not very many things that I think significantly detract from my experience here!
Colorado Christian University is a top-notch Christian University. They thrive on keeping Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior first and a great academic level second. Exceptional administration, staff, financial aid, et... I recommend Colorado Christian University to any student who's looking to have a closer Walk With Jesus. Secondly recommend this college to anyone who wants to learn a degree at an exceptional School.
God bless everyone!
