Yomara, what are some of the benefits of CUC's smaller campus community?

I like that CUC is smaller and people are really connected here. The professors spend time talking with us about our interests to help us find our path in social work and help us with internships. The close relationships with professors make you feel confident you'll do well.

How do you stay connected as a commuter student?

An advantage of being a commuter is that I get to go home and be close with my family. But I stay connected to campus by trying to fit as much as possible in my day—with my campus job, my classes, and being involved in student organizations like the LSU [Latino Student Union].
