    What is Weekend of Welcome?
    Weekend of Welcome is part one of the CCU Orientation Program for new students. WOW consists of parent and student workshops, service projectes, social activities, testing opportunities, community ceremonies, four days to get to know the community in which you are joining, a vital time to assist in your transition into CCU.
    What is the New Student Retreat?
    The New Student Retreat is the second part of orientation for all new students. We'll head up to Young Life's Frontier Ranch for a weekend to consider the big questions of college. NOTE: Any unexcused absenses will be subject to a fine charged to your student account.
    Are siblings allowed to attend WOW events?
    We know that having a student start college is a transition for the entire family and welcome family members including siblings. However, as most activities are geared towards students and parents, siblings can feel out of place. We leave this decision to parents.
    When are parent events finished for the weekend?
    Parent activities are scheduled on Thursday and Friday of Weekend of Welcome. Students will be busy in WOW activities throughout the entire weekend, so we recommend Friday evening’s meal as a great time to say goodbye.

    WOW is mandatory for all new first-time freshmen. The New Student Retreat is also required for all first-time freshmen. Transfer students are invited to attend. NOTE: Any unexcused absences at the New Student Retreat will be subject to a $125 fine charged to your student account.
