Orientation | Central Baptist College


The Office of Student Services is committed to healthy student development and success.  To achieve this, we believe a holistic orientation program is vital.  Upon completion of all required orientation programs, new students will understand how to navigate campus when needs arise, feel more connected with other students, staff, and faculty, and become more self-aware.  Below is a listing of all orientation programs offered at CBC.

Connect Day

Connect Days are designed to connect new students to the CBC family.  You will make your first college class schedule, meet your academic advisor, get-to-know new and current students, and learn about CBC policies and services.
