                   Dear Prospective Student,
                   INFLUENCE. Probably not the first word that comes to mind as you make
                   your decision on where to further your education. Yet this word is actually
                   one of the most important words to consider because no matter where you
                   earn a higher academic degree, you will be influenced. Let me explain.
WILLIAM H. JONES
PRESIDENT          You perhaps have friends who attended colleges where the influence of the
                   world eroded their Christian convictions. Whether through the influence of a
                   faculty member or roommate, eventually their love for the Lord Jesus grew
                   cool.
                   At CIU, we will influence you as well. But not from the perspective of the
                   world. We want to influence you from the perspective of the Word of God. We
                   desire to provide you with the education you need to further your education,
                   and develop Christlike character in your life — the whole life training you
                   need to serve the Lord.
                   INFLUENCE. It’s an important word. Come to CIU and let us influence you,
                   as you influence the world for Christ.
                   This catalog contains information about studying and living at CIU. But it
                   may not tell you everything you want to know. If we can help you personally,
                   please call (800) 777-2227 or e-mail the Admissions Office at
                   Admissions@ciu.edu to discuss your specific needs or questions with one of
                   our counselors.


                   Warmly in Christ,




                   William H. Jones
