WOW Activities

Orientation (WOW) is the start of an important, significantly different chapter of life for both the entering college student and their families. As such, we have created programming for commuters, residential housed, and transfer students as well as for parents and family members to assist in this important transition into the CCU community and university life. Students, you will have a blast during this weekend, and parents, your children will be in good hands! We are so excited to have you join the CCU community.
