Christian University Of North Haiti - Universite Chretienne Du Nord D'Haiti (UCNH)
The Christian University of North Haiti aims to prepare people for better Christian lives. They offer scholarships and are uniquely placed to give aid to those in the country outside the scope of a tertiary education because of their lack of proximity to the cities which house contemporary universities. The school offers a four-year tertiary education from its Limbe location in northern Haiti, near Cap Haitian, going for a rate that is attainable for the poorer set in the more rural environs.
The endeavor began in 1947, when missionaries obtained the location from the owners of a rubber plantation and started a seminary camp which averaged fifteen students a year. That number rose exponentially and today, hundreds of students are enrolled at UCNH.
For its obscure location and decidedly rural tilt, the school lacks nothing in amenities looked for in today's educational system. They are equipped with all the requisite facilities including a computer lab, science lab, a sports field, a gym, an amphitheatre, a music room and, of course, a chapel.
Today, the school seeks to build on the foundation they have and enhance their capacity to teach efficiently in the fields of Agriculture, Business Administration, Fine Arts, and Theology. Areas in which they seek improvement include the completion of their library building, the building of additional classrooms, and the enlargement of the fund used to give scholarships to 60% of the school's students. As a long term goal they would like to build an off-campus hospital in tandem with being able to offer an Applied and Health Sciences program to their curriculum.

Looking forward to seeing you in January.
I will let you know when my wife and I will arrive.
Should I assume that we will be staying on campus again?
