I chose to enroll at CUC because it feels like home, where everyone cares about you and has your back. The campus is small enough where it's like a family but still offers numerous opportunities.

Serving as a peer mentor has taught me a lot about how to lead, and how to serve as a role model too.

Concordia–Chicago is the only university that offers a full deaconess program at the undergraduate level. It's a small program, so we can really connect and learn from each other.
