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, or backpack 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.
