CUC's location is great because it's close to the city—you just hop on the Green Line 'L' and you're there. Plus, downtown Oak Park is within walking distance of campus, and there are plenty of things to do, like going to the movies, restaurants and stores.

Zach "Kentucky" Adamec

Out of the schools on my list during my college search, CUC was ranked highly for sports management programs alongside Division I schools. That really helped me decide to come here.

I like that we are a family in the DCE program at CUC — we encourage and pray for each other. We get a lot of hands-on experience, and because of that we learn to work alongside one another, rely on each other, network and grow closer.  

Mark Jungo

I like studying computer science at CUC because the professors are all really knowledgeable, and they have so much experience. Plus, the professors really care about their students.
