Getting Involved at CCU

College is an exciting time for you to grow and experience new things. All CCU students are encouraged to push themselves outside of their comfort zone, because you never know what you may find. Feeling connected to your campus is vital to your college experience, which is why we offer our students many ways to get involved both on and off campus.

You can put your heart, mind, and hands to work outside of the classroom with other students who have similar interests by joining one of our many campus organizations.

You can serve the communities of CCU and the greater Denver area by representing the collective student body in one of our student government groups.

You can even push your limits and grow as a leader by participating in one of our student-led ministries. This is unique to CCU, but we believe this allows our students to serve most directly where God calls them to serve.

Check out some of the opportunities we currently have on campus. Or, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, consider starting your own CCU organization!
