“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. " John 15:12: 

The month of February represents many things, from National and American Heart month, to Black History and National Library month. What’s common among them all is the love of something or someone. God calls us to love one another as He has loved us.

Love tends to sprout at CUW as many of our students find their true love while attending here. We have thousands of CUW couples who either met while attending CUW or connected afterward. Part of the reason could be the uncommon values they share. Please review the articles below to see how you can make sure the love of God shines through you as you show kindness and love to the people and things around you. 

Serving Him and you,
