Your best is within reach at CSU.

You will learn to think broadly and deeply about ideas, to engage biblical truths that ignite your curiosity, and to ask questions of the world and yourself – all aimed at preparing you to discover your purpose and achieve success in living it out.

Charleston

there’s no other
city like it

In the heart of the Lowcountry, Charleston has it all – great food, beautiful beaches and a booming economy.

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.
