”I was very excited when I was accepted into CUC’s Honors Program. I couldn’t wait to interact with fellow students who liked to learn as much as I do. Through my classes, I participated in discussions about aesthetics,mathematics and so much more. Concordia’s Honors Program is great; I love that there are an assortment of classes to choose from. I recommend the program to anybody who loves learning in a God-centered atmosphere. And above all, accept this as the perfect opportunity to truly challenge yourself!"
