Martha Semanko

At CUC, there are so many opportunities to grow in my faith beyond the surface level. I'm taking what I was taught growing up and making it my own now.

With CUC's Chicago-area location and the connections our professors have, there are so many opportunities for internships, meeting new people and networking.

Mark Mangiaracina

As a freshman, coming into Wind Symphony as first chair trombone was an incredible leadership experience that required me to step up. It pushed me to be a better leader.

As a student in the pre-med program at CUC, something I'm really excited about this year is the opportunity to work on a research project with my biology professor.
