Joshua Nash

I came to CUC for a football visit day and got to hang out with some of the guys from the team—it felt like home to me.

Brooke Zauner

My internship at CNN in Washington, D.C. was a big one for me—it was an amazing experience learning from some of the best correspondents and photographers in the business.

Perla Vargas

CUC's low student-to-faculty ratio helps inspire my learning. It motivates me to ask questions and want to be involved, versus at a bigger school where I might feel overwhelmed to try to talk to a professor.

Hannah Hayden

A lot of doors have been opened to me, with so many hands-on learning opportunities as I'm observing in a school or doing fieldwork at a church several times a week.

Dan San Buenaventura

I like that the computer information systems program at CUC is laid out for me, but I still have flexibility in selecting and scheduling my classes to suit me. This program leads me to where I want to be in the future.

Stephanie Coil

As an education major at CUC, I started doing field experience right away, so I was able to decide early on in my college career that teaching is really my passion.
