Student Spotlight: Elena Munguia

Meet Elena

Why CCU?

I was pretty much destined to go to CCU. My dad is a part time professor and on the alumni counsel, so I basically grew up on campus! I did not actually realize that CCU was the place for me until I was a freshman in high school and my family too the trip to Lakewood for the parents' homecoming weekend that the alumni counsel puts on every year. The experience of seeing all the college students having so much fun and living their best lives, really opened my eyes and showed me how amazing CCU is. I have created friendships that will last a lifetime and I have an education that will help me reach my goals! To this day, I think coming to CCU is the best decision I have ever made and I could not be happier here!

How did you hear about CCU?

My dad is on the alumni counsel and a part time professor. 

How is your CCU experience?

I have never been happier than I am at CCU! The community is unmatched! CCU does the most amazing job at creating a God loving community who seeks to further their faith while also putting on events that are beyond fun! The friends I have made here will be friends for life and CCU is providing me with an education that is preparing me to reach my goals and get my dream job in the future. 

What do you hope t achieve after you complete your degree?

I want to go to grad school to get my master's in marriage and family therapy or become a licensed professional counselor.
