  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Who should attend Spring Weekend?


    All new students are expected to attend the events of Spring Weekend. We have planned everything to help students as they transition to being a student at CBU. This includes all incoming Freshman and Transfer students.

    Can I bring guests?

    Guests are welcome for the Monday, January 8 portion of Spring Weekend.

    I am a commuter; do we get to stay on campus?

    We do not have a place for commuters to stay on campus. While they are on campus, the Commuter Lounge located in Cottage 1 is available to them.

    I have to work, what parts do I have to attend?

    We understand that work happens, so please plan to attend when you are not working.

    Do we have to attend all days?

    Yes, we have purposely planned these four days to get you connected to the community, our campus, and Christ. Do not miss it!
