One Veteran's Experience at CBU
"CBU offered a well-respected Master's program and I felt strongly that the emphasis on faith and high moral standards meshed with my personal beliefs. I am continuously impressed by CBU. I received much needed help during my admissions, initial financial aid process and veteran's assistance. I immensely enjoyed my classes and the high-quality instructors. I feel the difference in the words and actions of every individual I meet, whether staff or student. I have been treated with a tremendous amount of respect and heart-felt gratitude for my service."
