At Home with CGU

At Home with CGU will provide you the opportunity to mix and socialize virtually with other prospective students and listen to our keynote speaker, Paul J. Zak.

During our social session, we will utilize breakout rooms to engage in identity centered dialogue. We hope that you’ll take this opportunity to engage in open discussion, to ask questions from our staff members and fellow prospective students, share your thoughts about graduate school, and learn how CGU is available to support you and your ideas.
