Question
CUC was WAY TOOOther
CUC was WAY TOO EXPENSIVE and did not prepare me for a career! NOT ONE SINGLE STAFF MEMBER (including a coach) took interest in my career path or future success! TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY

Question
Jobs have varying wages your gonna spend alotAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
Jobs have varying wages your gonna spend alot of time cleaning or sitting unless your at the daycare doing both.

wages range from 7.25-10.00 depending on where you work so for example daycare is 7.25 in the school year but 8.25 in the summer.

This isn't a school its a stupid church..if you go here there's only a few majors to choose from that'll be worth studying but not to live on this dumbazz campus with these mind controlling faculty and staff...money money money thats all its about for real for real.

All right if you gonna major in exercise science, computer science*, education, and nursing thats just about it. Now concordia does have good-ok professors for other majors but the program itself will suck ass. The scheduling is retarded you have your monday -wed-fri classes and your tues-thurs classes for a total of 5 days straight....but hold up you not gonna have time for shit becuase your gonna work hella hours probly/especially for people with low income housing...and you'll probly not gonna study cuz your going to be socializing trying to get to know more people.

Now food -_- there's something in that stuff that'll make you gain weight really fast. I was X-country and i would make out to 7-8 miles a day for regular season burnign nearly 800-1000+ calories in my prime and could gain weight. This was one week where I literally gained 2-4lbs and i was grindin hard no lie...i could average 30-40miles a wk my freshman year but i could go up to 60+ if I so choose. But the point im trying to make that even if your an athlete your gonna gain weight from this water tasting food and it'll make you sluggish...not only that but its terrible horrible more times than you would like...no lie.

Athletics...baseball is ranked 3rd in the nation for D3 everything else sucks...there's no boxing,swimming, wrestling > which is a shame but they make up for in intramural sports: frisbee, soccer, and basketball.

Campus life haha there's is none this place is dead 95% of the time...if you really want to do something out of your normal your gonna have to join the church clubs that let speak to homeless people and children...they do lock-ins with kids and that is up to you...but outside of that your going to be bored out of your mind.

Most are terrible I have more fun plugging my PS3 and uploading netflix in the community center on the giant flatscreen rather than going to clubs which are a waste of time. The people there are a bunch of clique chics = boys and girls...btw the campus aint even big so your gonna see alot ppl you dont wanna see ALL THE TIME.

If you go here...congratulations you played yourself!
Peace XD
