Ariel Campos, CCU, Class of 2015

I graduated CCU in the Spring of 2015 with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a minor in Marketing. I so appreciated my time at CCU and would love to encourage other students or donors about its great education!

After graduation, I accepted an internship to work with the Billy Graham Evangelical Association over the summer with their Digital Media team. After the summer term, I was offered a job to work alongside Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelical Association to promote the Decision America Tour with Franklin Graham. We visit college campuses nationwide to increase support and mobilize students across the country to get involved. The Decision America Tour is an effort to engage every church, for believers to seek God, pray for revival in their state, and participate in a massive prayer rally with Franklin Graham.
