Even though I am just now beginning my graduate studies at the university, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. The faculty and staff are amazing, it shows that they genuinely care about each student on a personal level. If you want a Christian experience while receiving an elite education, come to CBU, you will not be disappointed!
Great communication from start to beginning. Especially during COVID the counselor and I were constantly emailing back and forth. I'm one of these people who asks a millions questions and the counselor was so patient and understanding of my concerns. Quick response within questions. The university online website and social media platforms were able to answer a few of my questions as well. Overall, the alumni and professors are very welcoming and eager to assist you during you higher educational journey. I especially love it because it's a small community so you definitely feel the one-on-one with your classmates.
