Open Houses & Events
Discover how a CBU education will push you to thrive beyond the classroom, beyond our campus, and beyond your expectations.
Financial Aid Night – December 8
We know that navigating Financial Aid can be tricky, so we want to help. Join us for an overview of financial aid that will apply to you no matter where you choose to go to college. We’ll also have counselors available to walk admitted students through their award packages. 5:30 – 7:00 pm.
Find Your Place: Preview Days & Open Houses
Participating in an in-person Preview Day 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. These events generally run from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., leaving you plenty of time to explore nearby Memphis attractions. Preview Days will be held on days when classes are available to attend.
Please note: EACH guest should register. We want to ensure that we have accommodations for everyone.
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)
Dreamers Info Sessions
At CBU, we take the value and potential of Dreamers seriously. We offer a session each fall to talk about the opportunities these students can get at Christian Brothers University. Sessions in Spanish available.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or (901) 321-3205 and let’s plan your group’s special tour.
Ask the Professors
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 Coffee and Conversations, just in case you’re not into java. And you can much a slice of pizza while you ask professors questions at Deep Dish with the Deans. See you then!
Civil Engineering Competition: September 19, 2022
Day of Social Justice @ CBU: October 17, 2022
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!
Hear from Dr. Russ Wigginton, President of the National Civil Rights Museum, the keynote speaker of the day.
Join high school students from the area in hands-on activities and deep dives with CBU students and 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.

National STEM Day @ CBU: November 7, 2022
High school juniors and seniors dig 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 will work with CBU’s distinguished STEM faculty.

This event has passed, but we’ll do it again next year!
Academic Virtual Open Houses
Participating in our Virtual Open House is your opportunity to learn more about the departments and programs we have to offer when the drive to campus is just too much. During the event you will:
- Connect with students, faculty, and staff from CBU departments and academic programs
- Learn more about your desired major or minor
- Discover exciting research and internship opportunities you could be a part of
- Find out about job opportunities, unusual courses, and other amazing things we have in store for our students
If you have been asked to take a Placement Test, we strongly recommend setting up your account via the ALEKS testing page before coming to campus to expedite your day-of Placement Testing process. 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. To do so, access Canvas, CBU’s learning management platform, using the credentials provided to you. Contact the Office of Student Success (email@example.com; (901) 321-3275) if you have any questions related to this process.
