Enrolling at Columbia International University comes with a warning.

“The classes are transformational.  Do not come to CIU if you want to stay the same.”

Those are the words of James McCall, a student in CIU Seminary & School of Missions.  McCall was addressing perspective students at a CIU Graduate School and Seminary Evening Open House in February.    

CIU Assistant Director of Graduate and Seminary Admissions, Dori Beach, says the Open House is held in the in evenings so prospective students who work during the day can meet professors, hear from students, and ask questions of the Admissions staff.

Beach, who earned a Master of Arts from CIU, says she was sold on the school because of professors make themselves available to the students.

“The professors are excellent practitioners, but they are even better men and women of God,” Beach said.

A Preview Day for CIU Graduate School and CIU Seminary & School of Missions is scheduled for March 25.  For more information, visit /schedule-visit.
