Couri Braithwait

Couri Braithwait knows how important it is to visit and experience SBU because she transferred here from another Christian university.

“I liked SBU’s campus because it’s a homey atmosphere. It’s a good community to be in,” she said. “Once you get here, it’s kind of hard not to love it.”

A social work major from Richland, Mo., Couri is pursuing one of SBU’s newest majors — and learning alongside a community full of people who share her Christian values.

“I really enjoy being able to live in an area with people who I can do life with and who share the same passion for Christ and what I want to do with my life,” she said. “I’ve built some really good friendships here.

Her best advice for new SBU Bearcats?

“Get involved in something,” she said. “There’s a million things you can do. Be confident you will find friends who are like-minded and enjoy the same things as you.
