Who should attend Graduate Student Kickoff?

You should attend if you will be starting a graduate program in the summer or fall of 2018. Graduate Student Kickoff is an opportunity for you to learn about the resources available to you as a CBU student as well as give you the opportunity to meet future classmates and faculty. This is a time to begin building your professional network that will help you succeed academically, professionally, and spiritually. As you begin your studies, we are excited to celebrate you and offer the support of our staff and faculty!

Is attendance mandatory?

Although we highly encourage attendance, space is limited to the first 500 students that register. The event is for students only. We apologize but we are not able to accommodate additional guests at this event.

Event Details

As you begin your new endeavor in graduate school, we want to answer some of the questions you may have and help you get to know CBU. We will review everything from where to find academic resources to where to grab a great cup of coffee on campus. Come hear from staff and faculty as they answer your questions and speak to how graduate school at CBU will prepare you to live your purpose. Every student in attendance will also receive a wonderful CBU gift.
