I had dreamed of going to Colorado Christian University since I was fourteen years old. After competing on campus with my high school debate league and meeting some of the professors and students, I was immediately drawn to the program. After some more research on my own and eventually great feedback from friends who began to attend the school, I was sold! Now, weeks into my freshman year, I am so overjoyed to be here and loving every part of this school! I would recommend this school to anyone who has a strong desire to be in an environment that builds and strengthens their faith, while also providing first rate education!
Review Colorado Christian University
What I like about Colorado Christian University is that not only you gain resources needed to maximize your career, you also learn about the Bible and how God visioned you to incorporate his words with the gift he installed in you. I am pursuing my Business Administration degree so when I become a C.E.O. I must not just use my talent for my self-interest, it must be an "enlightened" one. God Bless!
First off, I love the Christ-centered focus on everything this university does. The professors are genuinely happy to teach and invest in their students. The student activities department is constantly working hard to provide both on-campus and commuter students with opportunities to get connected and enjoy a wide variety of events. In addition, the location of this university is ideal. It is about twenty minutes from downtown Denver, and about twenty minutes from the mountains. Obviously, one thing I always hope to change, is the tuition price. Another thing I would like to change here is the diversity of students. There is not much diversity here. This is unfortunate because diversity helps people to gain knowledge and respect for other people and their cultures. Right now, CCU is lacking in this area.
