Why Corban

“I love the feel that I’ve found at Corban. I get to see students in multiple classes, which builds relationships over the course of the years, and I am able to engage them outside of class. Whether it’s a movie night at our house, a rafting trip, or just enjoying a meal together, Corban has a tight-knit community at all levels.”
