Freshman Weekend 2015: Take Root

 

Welcome to CUA! As incoming first-year students, you come with great expectations and potential, with great fears yet great anticipation. It is an entirely new time in your lives. It is a time to take root in your new life as you study, as you form new friendships, as you welcome new experiences. It is a time to be filled with enthusiasm and excitement, with the joy and the thrill that comes with the transition into collegiate life. 

It is a time to Take Root, rooted in this community, even as you set out on the journey of the next four years. Like with any new experience, help is needed along the way with any questions, concerns, and worries. It is our mission to answer your questions, help you through your concerns, and make you feel welcomed, ready, and inspired as you enter into life at CUA. Freshman Weekend provides an opportunity to do just that!

Join us from September 5-7 with 350 of your fellow first-year students on Freshman Weekend 2015 for an amazing experience full of talks and fellowship, prayer and games. Find time not only to make new friendships with others, but also find and strengthen your relationship with God. There is no better way to begin your college career!  Come and learn what it truly means to Take Root at CUA! Sign up today.

Location: Sandy Hill Camp, North East, MD (about 20 minutes north of Havre de Grace in Northern Maryland)
