    Location, location, location - I love SoCal! The students I have met at CBU will be friends for life. CBU offers large university amenities with a smaller intimate college feeling - you will meet so many amazing people and have a great college experience at CBU.

    It is a private christian university and is more expensive than surrounding colleges. However, they are so helpful in making sure you receive every little bit of financial aid possible. They really want you to come and stay at CBU and will go the extra mile to help you get every extra dollar for tuition.

    Yes, CBU comes with a rather significant price tag, but what other school can you have lunch with your professor in the cafeteria just to talk about life? What other school do you virtually zero trouble getting into the classes you need? And what other school will create a brand new class just because six students have asked for it? Two of my classes this semester have less than 10 students. Three of my classes have less than 20. There is not comparison, CBU is more than worth the price of attendance.
