Orientation is an on-campus event that introduces new students to various services they will need to access at CBU. While at Orientation, you will have an opportunity to get questions answered from staff representing a variety of offices, including Financial Aid, Student Accounts, Academic Advising, Residence Life and Campus Life. Our hope is that by the end of Orientation, you will feel a part of the Lancer Nation and are ready for your first semester at CBU.
Orientation for students living more than four hours away will be on September 1st – a day before Welcome Weekend.
Once you’ve signed up for orientation, the Academic Advising Office will collaborate with you to build your first-semester schedule. Orientation attendance is mandatory in order to finalize your schedule.
New Student Orientation aims to set everyone up for success. The day will consist of various sessions for both students and parents & guests because we realize they play a key role in our students' lives. We will provide lunch for up to two guests per student. Additional guest meals may be purchased the day of the event.
At New Student Orientation, we have programmed our sessions with parents and guests in mind. This will be the main opportunity for Parents and Guests to have their questions answered and to hear helpful information. You are encouraged to attend all of the sessions at New Student Orientation. Schedule highlights can be found at the top of this page.
Our hope for New Student Orientation is to answer every question that you or your student has.
