New Student Orientation (NSO)is a single-day event that is programmed to give new students the opportunity to learn
the ins and outs of CBU from staff, faculty and current students. We know that the
transition into college can sometimes be overwhelming, but we are committed to making
sure new Lancers are set up for success as they begin their time at CBU.
There will bethreeopportunities(*dates listed below)to attend New Student Orientation this summer and experience what life is like as
a Lancer. NSO comes at NO additional cost. New students and their two guests will learn about CBU’s campus and traditions, receive
critical resources that will set them up for success and meet other Lancers, all on
our beautiful campus.
Students can take care of a few tasks that will make their Welcome Weekend check-in
smoother, including taking their ID photo and picking up their CBU ID (available 7:30-8:15 a.m.
and during breaks). Students can also visit the Safety Services table to register a car (please know
the license plate number).
Plan on attending this event the entire morning. Lunch will be provided, and there
will be time to take care of any outstanding business with offices on campus.
See the campus, meet the people and experience a day in the life of a Lancer at NSO!
