At Cornerstone University, you'll discover a community of students that come from more than 30 countries. Each year, we welcome international students to Grand Rapids from countries such as Argentina, China, Canada, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Taiwan, Zambia, Congo and Australia. We invite you to join our vibrant community and are eager to welcome you as part of our story.
We value the global span of cultures, traditions and languages that God has gifted us as part of His Kingdom. Here, you may experience testimony from an international guest speaker, attend a cultural exchange event like Mixed Threads or sing your worship in a new language during chapel. As a CU student, you will be challenged to grow, develop a deeper understanding of Christ and rigorously pursue new opportunities.
