Your Purpose. Our Mission.
Joining the CSU family was truly an answer to prayer and has been a perfect fit for me. After being on the front lines of patient care through the COVID-19 pandemic, I felt the call for a change. Being at CSU, I am able to share my years of experience in patient care with students in a Christian environment. The students here are amazing and I love building relationships with them and helping them learn. As my colleagues often hear me say, "I'm just happy to be here!"Torie Clark
