Honestly, do NOT waste your time or your money with CCU! It is completely OVER-priced and they misrepresent who they are! You would be better off forgetting the "Christian" portion and just attending a non-Christian school - or at least not CCU. All they care about is their $ and the tuition is completely over-priced. I would never recommend this school, period. There is no easy way to access the people you need when you have questions. You get blown off. Their courses are NOT 5-week blocks, either. They are 6-weeks because they fail to tell you about the FINAL week that carries into the beginning week of the next class. So, essentially you are killing yourself to get the highest point assignment completed when you are already beginning another class.
This is a great place is you want to come and become brain washed into a christian drone. Tuition is ridiculous for the half ass facilities they provide, student housing is awful. The cafeteria food is unhealthy and sickening. Goose poop covers majority of all sidewalks. The campus pond smells like something died in there and most of the students are sheltered home school kids who do not know anything about the real world and are afraid to stand up reality in which they are not even living in. Classes are ridiculously easy and teachers are super lenient and its awesome how much you do not have to apply your self if you don't want to. Mandatory chapel and 250 hours of community service is outrageous to have to complete in order to graduate.
CCU markets itself based on the "community". As a result, academics suffer. The classes are mostly busy work, and I do not feel I learned much, except for in the classes relating to my major. Although all people talk about is how great the people are and how great the "CCU Community" is, if you are not exactly like everyone else, they do not want you around. I am shy, and I was repeatedly told that there was something wrong with me. My RA even told me I should go to counseling because I did not fit in. Unless you are extremely extroverted, loud, and upper-middle class, I would not recommend going here. Many students here think they are better than everyone else, and the treat you like they are better than you. Once you realize CCU is not the school for you, it is too late, because they trap you with classes that do not transfer, so either you are stuck at CCU or go somewhere else and basically have to start school over. In the winter the roads and sidewalks are not plowed, and the classrooms are cold. Most of the buildings are falling apart. The dining quality is terrible, and they do not make accommodations for food allergies. Also, whenever you want to talk about academics or finances, you get shuffled from department to department until you finally give up. If I would have known what I know now, I would not have chosen to go to CCU.
