            Great experienceI attended CIU from 2010 to 2014 and earned my B.S. in Business & Organizational Leadership. I had a great experience while at CIU. The faculty are awesome. The campus is small and beautiful. The Bible classes are stellar. The business & organizational leadership program is young but already off to a fabulous start. This is a great opportunity to develop meaningful relationships and to grow in your walk with Christ. I met my wife at CIU also. Some students even jokingly call CIU "See I do."
