Lancer Day helps prospective students choose CBU

Riverside, Calif. (Feb. 21, 2022) – Melissa Sanchez, resident of Grand Terrace, and her friend Kimorha Harrison, of Moreno Valley, made the decision to attend California Baptist University together on Feb. 18 at Lancer Day. Both are excited to become part of the CBU community. 

“Everyone was very welcoming,” Sanchez said. “Admissions was really helpful in the way they set everything up for us.” 

“I really like the community aspect of the school,” Harrison said. “I also enjoy how they implement Christianity into your studies.” 

Taylor Neece, assistant vice president for admissions, kicked off the event as he welcomed attendees in the Van Dyne Gymnasium. He told the audience that Lancer Day was designed to help students decide if CBU is a good fit. 

“If you think you are going to purchase a car, you are going to test drive,” Neece said. “That’s what you are doing here today … test driving the CBU experience.”

Neece discussed how the average person makes 35,000 decisions per day and how choosing a school is important. 

“Where you decide to attend college will play a major factor in how you are going to live your God-given purpose during and after college,” Neece said.

Lancer Day is one of many events that CBU hosts during the year to connect prospective and accepted students to campus. Over 300 potential Lancers came to campus with friends and family. Attendees were given the chance to tour the campus, attend academic and campus life sessions and learn more about the amenities and programs CBU offers. 

Kylie Garcia, a resident of Riverside, was set on coming to CBU. Growing up in the area, Garcia visited campus for sports clinics. She said she loved seeing how much fun the students had on campus. 

“The community and social life CBU offers is really fun,” Garcia said. “There’s never going to be any boredom here.”

Those who officially committed to attending CBU were given the red-carpet treatment, complete with signing their name on “CBU” letters and ringing a bell to symbolize the start of their journey as a Lancer.

Cole Schulenberg, resident of Apple Valley, wanted to follow in his sister’s footsteps and attend CBU. 

“I love the energy here,” Schulenberg said. “The campus and the students are so lively.”
