"Cornerstone has been a blessing in my life since I walked in the doors as an 18-year-old freshman. CU has been formational in my spiritual development and has provided an empowering community of coworkers and friends. It is a joy to journey with new students as they begin to experience the CU community and get started in graduate degrees!"
