Billy Halsey

The professors I've had in the exercise science program, along with being so close to downtown Chicago, have opened up doors for me that never would have opened back home.

Olivia Friedrichs

I feel that being part of an NCAA Division III athletics program helps students develop a lot of important qualities, like communication skills, teamwork, compassion and working under pressure situations.

Ellen Moussou

Besides there being small classes, what I find really comforting at CUC is that the professors know my name, they know me personally, and they care about me as an individual.

Mitch Pelissier

There are just so many things to be involved in here at CUC that you can't help but be a leader in some way.
