What Is Collegebound?
- An Outdoor Orientation Program and 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 past trips!
