About CSU

A student-to-faculty ratio of 12:1 offers access to professors you can’t get at a larger university.

Our vision: To be a Christian university nationally recognized for integrating faith in learning, leading and serving.

Build new skills, professional contacts and your resume through internships in CSU's ELI program.

Your first step

There’s no better time to take your first step with CSU.

You'll get an education at any school, but here you'll discover who you are and God's purpose for your life.
