First Year Experience Overview


The first year of college is a life changing experience for most students and sets the tone for the rest of your academic career.  

The First Year Experience is a comprehensive academic program designed to integrate you into the academic and cultural community of Christian Brothers University. Coordinated by Academic Services, First Year Experience is aimed at strengthening your connection to CBU and providing the foundation for academic success. From your first day as a student at Freshman Orientation through the completion of CBU 101, you’ll receive support, guidance, encouragement, and resources as you explore the University and establish your academic goals. Our objective is to empower you to engage in a shared learning experience with your peers, explore opportunities, and take part in activities that support your academic and personal growth.

We look forward to sharing this journey with you and wish you a great first year!
