Patten is a private, coeducational, interdenominational Christian University dedicated to providing a Liberal Arts education with a strong biblical studies emphasis. Patten University is committed in all of its policies and practices to upholding the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the authority of the Bible as the revealed Word of God, and the high moral standards found in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Our mission is to provide an excellent education for motivated and committed students from a broad diversity of ethnic, geographic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. The University seeks to maintain a welcoming and supportive community where students are encouraged and equipped to find and develop their unique talents and spiritual gifts.
To achieve its purposes, the University seeks to offer students a coherent and integrated education so that they will become aware of the traditions and cultures that have shaped societies, develop and expand their abilities to think critically and independently, and come to understand their own place and role in the larger world community. The University endeavors to inspire students to commit themselves to God, serve their communities, and live as morally responsible individuals in whatever vocation or profession they choose to pursue.

We help students and colleges connect. In the past year, we've helped over 600 colleges make over two million connections with students! Cappex allows colleges to search anonymous student profiles to find the students they'd like to connect with. It makes the college admissions process easy by offering college search and lots of college resources, with detailed information on admissions, scholarships and financial aid.
Best of all, the students stay in control. Students review messages from colleges in their own "College Center" here on the site. The student chooses which colleges to share their contact information with, keeping their information hidden from the rest.
Cappex recently launched MeritAid.com, to help students learn about college options they might have otherwise assumed were out of their reach. Colleges are investing over $11 billion annually in merit aid and academic scholarships to attract and retain students, and we want to help them get the word out!
Shed some stress and gain some confidence. Cappex - College search made simple.
