About CHOU! University

Conceived in 2009, CHOU! University is a place for friends to live and learn. C!U came about because our founder wanted a school where people could love what they do everyday.

September 4, 2013, CHOU! University launched into the hearts and minds of students everywhere and thus here we are today.

The University doesn't have a physical campus. It doesn't have tenured faculty. In fact, C!U isn't exactly "accredited" by a "respectable organization", whatever that means. We reject those limiters and instead invite you to the C!U campus! If you look closely enough, you may see C!U in your heart.

The University offers:

  • some programs of study!
  • all your friends!
  • novel experiences!
  • competitive Color House system!

Regardless of what they study, C!U students will have fun, experience new fields, and possibly create new friendships along the way. Apply today!

Learning Through Experience

Following in the faith of the great educator and pedagogist John Dewey, C!U believes students learn best when they throw their hands into our subjects.

Whether in person, with a computer, or remotely, students will experience first hand the coursework and be able to interact with mentors in the classroom (virtually through course materials designed by the instructors, of course).

Growing population

C!U students are all around you right now. Look to your left. Look to your right. Are you alone? Then open your front door and run wildly into the hallway. Eventually you will find someone who has attended a class at C!U. Don't you want to be the one others are running around desperately trying find? Apply today!
