New Students

We are excited to welcome you to the Lancer Nation!  Our mission is to help new students connect with Christ, classmates, and the CBU campus culture.  At New Student Orientation, you will receive your fall class schedule and learn how to successfully transition to life at CBU. After New Student Orientation, your next step is to attend Welcome Weekend on September 1-3, 2017.  If you are living on campus in the Fall, then you will move on campus September 1.  We have planned memorable events for all new students to experience together.  We are excited to welcome you to our community as we prepare you to Live Your Purpose.

Parents and Guests

Our office exists to serve you and your student during the transition to CBU.  Our hope is to answer all of the questions that you might have and provide you with the information and tools in order to best support your Lancer while they are a student at CBU.  We encourage parents and guests to attend New Student Orientation with their students.  At this event, we cover financial information, academic expectations, and introduce you and your student to some Lancer traditions.  We are excited to welcome you and your student to the CBU campus community!
