Why CCU?

I went to an over-populated public high school full of very diverse views and cultures, and going to a small Christian university was the last place I expected to end up. Nevertheless, in the months after one simple conversation about the school, I was surprised to feel God pulling me toward CCU. I knew the snowboarding would be awesome, and I knew being in a Christian community would be great, too.

What I didn’t expect was a school so committed to giving me a worthwhile education. I know that I’ll graduate with an education that can easily compete with any school in the area.

Moving to Colorado was surreal. Obviously, it was a dream-come-true for a Midwest kid who grew up snowboarding on the little dirt mounds they call ski hills, but it also meant moving far away from all of my family and friends. I left expecting to get to go home once or twice a year, if I was lucky. But, because of such a large population of out-of-state students, I found that there is never a shortage of people driving out that way for breaks, so I was able to go home more often than I expected.

Now I realize that coming to CCU was the best decision I could have made. It has already changed my life enormously, and I know it is shaping me into the person God created me to be.
