The way that CSU integrates a biblical worldview into everything is just amazing. When I talk with colleagues who have graduated from other unnamed Christian schools, they don’t know how to integrate Scripture into their field. They don’t know how to make it more than a ‘read this verse and call me in the morning,’ mentality.
