It's the best! I've made some of my closest friends at CU.

The relationships that I made. I instantly had friends and if we didn't have Terra Firma, I think those first few weeks would've been very lonely.
Many students are shocked by the sticker price of CU. How has financial aid helped make CU a possibility for you?
For me, CU was the least expensive school I looked at because of the aid I received. Scholarships made it possible for me!
Have you done a study Abroad experience?
Yes! I did a J-Term in Italy and a semester in Kenya. I would absolutely encourage other students to study abroad. I learned so much about myself and about others and have made friends that will last a lifetime. My favorite aspect of both trips has been the fact that I went so far out of my comfort zone, yet did so many amazing things that changed my life. I think everyone should study abroad.
