Welcome (Back) Weekend

Watch the 2016 video above to get a glimpse into what happens during Welcome (Back) Weekend at CBU!  This is an opportunity for the CBU community to officially say “Welcome!” to the class of 2021 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!  

The 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 20.  Help us kick off the start of a great year at BucFest, which will feature great activities, food, music and general revelry! 

For First Year Students
  • SAVE THE DATES: Friday, August 18th, 2017- Sunday, August 20, 2017.  You're encouraged to paticipate in all the events and activities planned throughout the weekend.  If you need to request off from work, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible.

  • CBU SERVES: As part of Welcome (Back) Weekend, join your fellow Bucs to give back to the Memphis community. You'll choose your CBU Serves project when you arrive at Welcome Back Weekend. Let’s show Memphis how CBU SERVES!  

  • MOVE IN PROCEDURES & INSTRUCTIONS: Due to recent construction on campus, we have special instructions for incoming students and their parents. Please check back in July 2017 for important details on parking, unloading, registering, and making the first day of college a great experience. 

  • ALSO BE SURE TO FOLLOW CBUSNAPS TO STAY UP-TO-DATE ON THE LATEST NEWS AROUND CAMPUS! 

  • DON'T FORGET TO USE THE HASHTAG #WelcomeBackBucs DURING WELCOME BACK WEEKEND ON TWITTER, INSTAGRAM, AND FACEBOOK!
