What Students Are Saying

3.94 Average Rating
CIU is a great school and I am particularly pleased with the program I have chosen. The professors are very nice and diligent teachers, serving the students well. Another great thing about CIU is the amount of work available to students on campus!
Amanda from PARKMAN, ME
CIU is a small, close-knit community (about 600 students) committed to preparing students to serve God. The professors care about students and do a good job teaching. CIU will be entering intercollegiate athletics for the first time in 2013.
