Welcome (Back) Weekend

Welcome (Back) Weekend


Welcome (Back) Weekend is an opportunity for the CBU community to officially say “Welcome!” to freshmen and their families and to welcome returning students back for a new year.  We hope that you are just as excited to be at CBU as we are to have you!

Welcome (Back) Weekend is for both residential and commuter students and is an integral part of the First Year Experience.  All first-year freshmen are required to attend, and parents are strongly encouraged to join their students. You’ll have an opportunity to learn more about campus, give back to the community, enjoy activities and start building lifelong friendships. Upperclassmen will be welcomed back to campus on Saturday, August 23.  Help us kick off the start of a great year at BucFest, which will feature great activities, food, music and general revelry!
