Why CSU?

Home » Admissions » Why CSU?

Students constantly say the top reason they love CSU so much is: Community.

When you’re part of the CSU community, you attend class with professors who are mentors, you do life right alongside others who want to serve their Savior, and you are welcomed into lifelong friendships that last well beyond graduation.

LIFELONG TRAINING

More than just a degree.

At CSU, everything is geared towards one goal: to prepare you to succeed in your career and grow in your walk with Christ. You will attend chapel each weekday to worship and be challenged through God’s Word, and your professors will mentor you from a biblical perspective in every one of your classes.

“I am being prepared….by my teachers giving me real scenarios to work with in class that help me think from a Christ-centered view. I also have been prepared to be a Christ-centered, career-ready graduate by being pushed in the sports I play, being shown that what we take off the field or court will reflect in our lives as well.”
