Cougar Days is a free, half-day orientation event where students learn about the student success services available to them, meet the president, faculty and staff and participate in fun games and activities designed to help ease their transition into college life.
Also, students can meet with a student development adviser to register for fall classes and learn more about its academic and workforce programs. Attending Cougar Days satisfies the college’s mandatory student orientation requirement and all student attendees receive free lunch and a CBC T-shirt.
Parents are also welcome to attend Cougar Days with their student. CBC faculty, financial aid advisers, student development specialists and business office staff will be available to talk with parents and answer any questions. Students are free to attend whichever Cougar Days location is most convenient regardless of where the student will attend classes in the fall. Registration for Cougar Days 2014 is available online, 24/7 at www.coastalbend.edu/cougardays.
To be eligible to register for fall 2014 classes on Cougar Days, students must bring proof of bacterial meningitis vaccination if under 21, social security number, placement test scores or evidence of exemptions, and official transcripts from any high school or college attended.
