Why Concordia

Undergraduate students choose Concordia University Chicago because CUC meets their goals for:

  • Practical preparation for a satisfying career

  • Critical thinking and communication skills that last a lifetime

But it’s not just about the destination—they also choose CUC so they can be inspired during their collegiate career and beyond. Read what our students are saying about CUC...

Rachel Druek

CUC's location lets you have the best of both worlds. Chicago is only 20 minutes away from Oak Park—you can even see the Chicago skyline from our parking garage—but at the same time we're not impacted by the chaos of the city, being in a residential neighborhood.

Teresa Onstott

My leadership experiences at CUC are helping me learn more about myself—and what I can do as a future teacher to make things better for children. I really want to be that agent for change.

Anthony Huspen

When I learned how affordable CUC could be, I decided to apply. The financial aid I received was more than I got from other schools I applied to, and it brought the cost down the most.

Jade Nichols

The communication professors at CUC don't just teach the subject. They are also out in the field practicing it in their own lives, which is really great.

Aaron Bean

One of the reasons I chose CUC is because it's close to Chicago, where the networking and career opportunities are huge.

Mason Vieth

One of the great influences for me in coming to CUC was seeing the importance that is placed on spiritual life. I love that I'm always in God's word here.
