"The sense of community is the best thing about CBU. During your time in college you will be faced with a lot of conflicts, and it will not always be easy and fun.

"The best thing, to me, is the sense of community. It’s why I came here, and it’s why I’m still in college. I feel more at home on this campus, with people I’ve known for (at most) 3 years, than I ever did back home."
Favorite Quote: “Jump first, fear later.”
