Corban University has such a welcoming environment. This can easily be shown through the faculty and students. Close relationships are grown because of the small class sizes. This private Christian college encourages growth in your faith through chapels, friendships, professors, and biblical classes. Since the campus is built on a hill, the climb up and down the hill from classes can get tiring. However, my overal experience with Corban has been great and I’m glad I’ve had the experience of attending there.

Corban University is by far the best school I could imagine for being a Christian scholar. So far being here has been more than I could have imagined in classes, athletics, and even building friendships. The personal involvement the professors have in your success builds a solid foundation for each and every students future. I feel like I really belong in this university due to the nature of all of the students who are welcoming, professors who are welcoming, and even coaches being welcoming.
The environment of the campus is peaceful and calm. The faculty are extremely welcoming and helpful with any questions anyone has about entering college. The campus is absolutely beautiful and very in tune with nature, they have clubs and activities for everyone, and with all the options given, people can even find a new hobby. Overall Corban University is amazing.
