"Cornerstone has good professors and some good course programs but everything else about this university is not worth it, especially if you are a commuter. The events I went to on campus, including sporting events, were not well attended, showing the lack of school spirit. At the start of the semester, the chapel services are full with students getting their chapel credit, once most people have the required amount, the service attendance significantly decreases. You would think at a Christian university the students would love the opportunity to worship God, but most do not go beyond the requirement. As a commuter, things are rough. Even scholarships you cannot receive if you do not live on campus which is annoying. Just because commuters do not have the added amount of room and board does not mean that they need less financial help. Starting the semester, commuters were promised commuter lunches and events. There was only 2 that were announced and they were at an inconvenient time when many people had class. In the survey, I was able to give feedback but so far nothing has changed. There is a clear distinction between athletes and non-athletes, and these 2 groups do not mix together. Speaking of mixing together, there is little to no diversity. This is shown in the classroom and in the dining hall. The food (specifically meat) is terrible and majority of the time lacks flavor. You would think that for the price they charge for tuition, room and board, they would be able to afford some better dining. Almost every meal I eat is dry and I can't finish it. In class, I am the only student of color in many of my classes. The majority of the little diversity at cornerstone comes from the international students and there is a clear separation between the white students and international students or students of another race. Overall if you are used to a small, sheltered, not diverse, Christian, upper middle class circle, this is a good school for you, otherwise don't waste your time, not worth giving them your money."

"Professors don’t email you back, there’s no direction or instruction. The academic advisors are aggressive and non responsive. They only care about making money and not actually teaching or being good Christian’s. This school and this program have gone way down hill."

"It was a good program for a busy adult. It also included international perspective which I did not see in similar programs."

"Cornerstone is a great school. I have been able to use my degree in a number of ways throughout my career. I was out of work for a number of years (by choice - stay at home dad) and was able to get back into the work force quickly due to the degree I earned at Cornerstone."

"Cornerstone had a great community feel. I made lifetime friends while attending there, but the direction from my advisor was lacking. I spent most of my college years with little direction from him and squandered a lot of credit hours."

"Please choose another college....classes were weak and there is a 'do not fail' policy at the university. The hypocrisy is bad....especially with it being a Christian-based school. Promise were broken & their no. 1 goal is money. 25% of their students do not belong in college....let alone giving 'honor' graduate status to students who didn't deserve it....let alone being allowed in college."

"Cornerstone's Graduate Program has typically great faculty members who are interested in helping you succeed. There is not too much diversity on campus with beliefs because it is a Christian college, but they are not intolerant to outside opinions or ideologies. It is friendly to those who work two jobs like myself; and, it is friendly to those with a family or extremely busy schedules. Overall, it is a great program and they try to work with you and assist you in any way they are able."

"Cornerstone may seem like a lot of money, and while I agree, it is worth every penny. I had a great experience and learned so much relevant to my career and life. I would recommend Cornerstone to any person who is interested in learning with a Christian worldview and growing personally and spiritually"
