Student Perspective

“I am so thankful for CUBS as it provided me with academic, professional, and social opportunities. Coming from out of state, I was worried that the transition would be difficult, but CUBS hosted events starting day 1 which allowed me to connect with new people who possess similar passions. My favorite part of CUBS was all the supplemental academic support I was provided. Not only was one of my classes held in the building where we lived but my advisor was also right downstairs. I loved that as CUBS students we had sections of classes blocked off just for us. This meant we knew everyone in our class and could all easily meet up on our hall for the best study sessions.”

-Emmala Alfaro, Management major
