Campus Traditions

TWIRP/The Woman Is Required to Pay (end of September) During TWIRP Week, girls invite guys to on- and off-campus events including concerts, Angels and Dodgers baseball games, and a barn dance (complete with square dancing and a costume contest), as well as Disneyland, Sky Zone and other Southern California excursions. 

Midnight Madness (late October/early November) This high-energy event kicks off basketball season by introducing the men's and women's basketball teams to hundreds of cheering students packed into the gym. School spirit is raised with games and relays like the dunk contest and 3-point shootout, and free food and prizes for the fans. You must wear your CBU Crazies T-shirt to get in the door. Tickets sell out quickly.

Yule (early December) — Enjoy a change of pace with a formal dinner and night of entertainment at a premier Southern California venue. In the past, this event has featured a murder mystery dinner aboard the Queen Mary, acrobats and comedians performing in the banquet hall of the Grand California Hotel at Disneyland, and a performance by Johnnyswim at the Riverside Convention Center.

Lancer Takeover (April)– The Lancer community and their families take over Castle Park amusement park for a night of rides, mini-golf, dinner, a DJ and more!

Open Mic Nights (Fall & Spring Semester) — These occur each semester showcasing CBU's student talent.
