EduCativ Posted July 30, 2020 Share Posted July 30, 2020 A Christian university: Crandall University was founded by Christians in 1949 and has always been open to all students. Crandall is the largest faith-centered university located north of Boston and east of Toronto. At Crandall, you will find a safe, warm, and caring community with professors and staff who seek to live the Christian faith as examples to students faithfully. All traditional undergraduate students (BA, BSc, BBA, BTh) will be challenged to explore the content of the Christian faith through a minor in Religious Studies. In other degree programs, the basics of the Christian faith are also explored since it has formed much of the foundation of Canadian and western culture. At Crandall, in ways appropriate to the nature of their degree programs, all students are challenged to explore the understanding and application of the Christian faith to daily life. Among several things, the path to this understanding and application includes experiences with dynamic chapel services, individually-tailored service learning in the Crandall Community Practicum program, and specialized course assignments and readings. Crandall is the most affordably priced of the more than 200 Christian universities in North America. Crandall is competitively priced and attracts excellent students from across the country and around the globe due to its generous scholarship and bursary program.
