Each student gets a laptop. Great tech-support. Wireless is fairly good.

As a private Christian Institution there is very little partying on-campus, if any.

As a private Christian Institution, Cornerstone University does not allow drugs or alcohol on campus, nor does the university allow students to consume any drugs or alcohol of any form while a student at the university.

I lived off-campus for most of my collegiate career. Much more affordable than living on-campus, much more freedom.
College Junior 2013-11-20T15:44:14Z
Grand Rapids is absolutely thriving, and a big collegiate city (8 colleges) there are countless options and variety.
College Junior 2013-11-20T15:42:59Z
Very accepting of most forms of diversity. As a private Christian institution Cornerstone University does not accept GLBT. Cornerstone University is focused on World Missions and international business/travel - to help explain its diversity.

Newly updated and renovated dinning commons and kitchen has since provided much more variety and higher quality of foods with more times to eat during the day.

Cornerstone University is beginning to run out of parking spaces, but over-all the lots are close to classroom buildings or dorms and easily accessible.

Expensive, small, with little amenities - but that is college. You are on-campus to study and learn, you can go off campus to party if desired. Renting an apartment off campus or buying a house is 1/3 the cost of living on campus and a better idea long-term. The dormitories are clean, though many of the buildings are old and students can see the University Administration has been trying to update the general maintenance of a lot of the buildings.

Applying for loans is easy. Applying for scholarships is not - though that may be true anywhere. My advice is to not settle for the "traditional expectation" that as a college student you will accumulate debt. Break that mentality because it is an old, and in my opinion stale, philosophy. Fight for scholarships when you can, and make your voice heard if you think tuition is too high. I have worked 40 hours a week for the last 5 years, while taking 3 or 4 classes a semester, in order to graduate with as little debt as possible.

Cornerstone University thrives in building relationships between faculty and students, which is by far its biggest strength. It also works hard to invest in a broad character development to influence its student body into successful career candidates. As a private institution the tuition rates are high, which might be its biggest weakness.

All the students I know do not drink alcohol or use drugs. I don't expect to see it on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-11-08T01:23:55Z
I miss not having a swimming pool, but the new dorm and baseball field are very nice. The new buildings that will be built while I am on campus will be fun to watch go up!
College Sophomore 2013-11-08T01:15:57Z
Everyone is welcome and included in the dorms and campus.

There is no greek life on campus, that I know about.

As a freshman, I haven't had an internship yet. I will probably do one in two or three years.

Cornerstone University has a wonderful campus and dorm life.
College Sophomore 2013-11-08T01:08:15Z
I need to get more scholarship to be able to afford to attend school next year.
College Sophomore 2013-11-08T01:07:34Z
I have never lived off campus, but have friends who have and they liked it.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
