Discover how a CBU education will push you to thrive beyond the classroom, beyond our campus, and beyond your expectations.

Coffee & Conversations with Professors: July 10 & August 7

Come have a casual chat with professors from across campus to get an idea of what courses will be like in your chosen study. One of CBU’s highlights is the commitment faculty have to students, and this will give you a great opportunity to let them get to know you. We’ll have more than coffee on these Sunday afternoon visits, just in case you’re not into java. See you then!

Social Justice Day @ CBU

Christian Brothers University takes social justice very seriously — it’s one of the Lasallian principles we build on. While others talk about making the world a better place, our students actually do it!

Find out how careers in business and the arts can give you a platform to change the world!

Join high school students from the area in a variety of hands-on activities and some deep dives with CBU students, alumni, faculty who have already made an impact in the world of social justice. We’ll provide you with materials and with lunch. Just come ready to envision a better future.

The date for this year’s event will be announced soon!

National STEM Day @ CBU

High school juniors and seniors dug into a variety of STEM projects, hands-on activities, and session-specific competitions. From the “Phun of Physics” to the mysteries of math, from the anomalies of anatomy to the energy of engineering, students worked with CBU’s distinguished STEM faculty.

Learn more HERE. The date for this year’s event will be announced soon!

School Events

Want to come visit CBU with your classmates? We host special events for individual schools or districts all the time, and we’d be happy to put together an in-person or virtual event just for you. Contact us at admissions@cbu.edu or (901) 321-3205 and let’s plan your special tour.

Find Your Place: Preview Days

Participating in an in-person Open House is your opportunity to explore the academic departments and support services we have to offer, meet faculty and current students, see the campus, share lunch in the cafeteria, and get a glimpse into CBU life. Open House events run from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., leaving you plenty of time to explore nearby Memphis attractions.

Why Come?

“I didn’t know anything about Memphis or CBU before I came to visit, but the minute I stepped onto campus, I felt safe and at home. Since then, CBU has impacted me: I’ve grown a lot, and being here has helped me in my professional and personal life.”
– Maribel (’21, Business Administration)

Academic Virtual Open Houses

Placement Testing

If you have been asked to take a Placement Test at one of our Find Your Place events or during your campus visit, to expedite your day-of Placement Testing process, we strongly recommend setting up your account via the ALEKS testing page before coming to campus. You will need your CBU ID number (beginning with “899”) to create your account. When registering your account, be sure to record your chosen email address and password and bring this information to the test.

If you have reliable Wi-Fi access and a laptop or desktop computer with a webcam, you may also complete a Placement Test attempt remotely before attending Find Your Place. To do so, access Canvas, CBU’s learning management platform, using the credentials provided to you via the previous “Take Your Math Placement Test” email. Follow the instructions provided on the CBU Placement Exams page. Contact the Office of Student Success (studentsuccess@cbu.edu; (901) 321-3275) if you have any questions related to this process.
