What our Alumni say :
It’s actually a blessing in disguise that I enrolled in the BS Math program. I was about to enroll in BSEd major in Math buy my fate brought me at the BS Math program and NO foundation: on how to set my goals and priorities, and how to achieve them through self discipline and determination. These contributed to my being prosecutor now.
Had it not been for my BS Math degree from my beloved Alma Mater CPU. I could not have found a job in Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world. I owe my Mathematical skills from the excellent professors in the Math and Physics Department.
America needs Science and Mathematics teachers for high schools. There is a lot of shortage of them here. The screening is tough so if anyone thinks of coming here, He has to be CPU- Educated.
