“CIU has been the sole reason I am where I am today. Sure, I did the work and made the grades... But without Benay and Suzanne pushing me, rooting for me, and providing me with the connections/assistance there is no way I would be a Dean’s list student today. CIU has been a guiding guardian angel.”— CIU Student
