Faith Korte

One of the really cool aspects of the LTE program at CUC is having the opportunity to observe Lutheran teaching in different school settings in Chicago and in the suburbs around our campus. 

Vanessa Vergara

I am a member of the cheer team at CUC, which has helped me grow as a leader and as a team player who can work well with others. 

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. 

Haylie Williamson

CUC is the only university that offers a full deaconess program at the undergraduate level, and it can be completed in five years. That was an advantage to me because I want to get out into the field and start serving as soon as possible.
