Week of Welcome 2022

Week of Welcome is all about setting you up for success. Each September, January and May, new and returning CBU students are encouraged to participate in the many sessions and events held by CBU to start your semester off on the right foot.

During Week of Welcome, students can meet faculty, staff and current students, learn about student supports and services, financial aid and find out what campus life is like at CBU. Watch the video below for a sneak peek into what you can expect from Week of Welcome 2022!


Please note: Monday’s inflatable obstacle course has been cancelled.
