Collegebound

 2015CB All

What Is Collegebound?

  • An optional wilderness learning experience for incoming first year or transfer students to CSB/SJU.
  • Students will either rock climb, canoe, backpack or camp and explore in Northern Minnesota for the week preceding orientation, no experience necessary.
  • An opportunity to learn about yourself and develop skills important to college life.
  • A great way to meet other students, both first years and upperclassmen, before classes start.
  • A good way to make the transition into college.
  • Check out some photos from our 2015 trip!
  • Download the 2016 Collegebound Brochure
