i love how the general education courses are intergrated into the engineering department. the school helps you adjust to your new surrounding. the support with your classes is amazing.
Richard from Corona, CA
CBU has been one of the best experiences of my life. I have been able to meet great people and build long lasting friendships. Most of all CBU makes it easy to build your relationship with God.
