DeAndre, what do you like about CUC's location?

I like that CUC is in a residential neighborhood, but there are still a lot of things to do around campus, for example in Oak Park, Elmwood Park and Melrose Park, which are close by. At the same time, it's only a 20-minute trip to downtown Chicago and only 45 minutes or an hour from my home. It's pretty much the perfect location for me.

What do you like about studying psychology at Concordia–Chicago?

I really like the professors I've had at CUC. They've been very helpful, not just in the classes I have with them, but also if I have a question about another class I'm taking or want to discuss career areas I might want to go into. They've been helpful to me with really anything that I've asked. And they're good, genuinely nice people as well.
