Why did you choose CU?
I told God I was willing to follow Him in the direction I should go, and He led me here to CU. I believe that CU is where He wants me to be so I followed Him there. Plus, Cornerstone totally rocks hardcore!
My favorite Prof was definitely Pro. Matthew Westerholm prior to him moving on from Cornerstone to pursue a career in Minnesota. "Why?” you may ask. Well if you have to ask, you must not know him.
Chapel Band, Gospel Choir, Chorale, Multicultural Organization (MCO), & Admissions Volunteer

How would you describe community life at CU?
I would describe community life at CU as LIVELY! There are fun and interesting events always going on around campus that has a great way of bringing people together.
What did God teach you last semester?
Trust and diligence are two main things I learned last semester. God was teaching me how to completely put my total reliance in Him and not worry about how things would work out. I learned about being persistent in that trust. I gained the understanding that God has already worked out every situation I will ever have. All we have to do is ask, believe, and receive whatever help we need from Him. (Mark 11:24) With joy Christ helps us along this journey of life.
What’s your favorite thing about CU?

What was your favorite thing about Terra Firma?
My favorite thing about Terra Firma was the service projects. My group, the Flamingos, volunteered at the PRC center. I loved getting involved in the community and being able to make a difference in someone else's life.
How has financial aid helped make CU a possibility for you?
Financial aid acted as the missing pieces to my "tuition" puzzle. They help by awarding generous scholarships and grants that made my coming to CU possible.
How have you managed living away from home?
Living away from home was quite a challenge for me because of being away from family. However, community and dorm life is very welcoming and in a way I developed a family away from home that made it easier to be away.
What advice would you give to students who plan to attend school out of their home state?
My best advice to give would be to anticipate great things and remain with a positive outlook on the situation. A positive outlook on things will get you far!
