F.I.R.S.T. Days

Welcome to Wildcat Country!

F.I.R.S.T. Days (New Student Orientation) is designed to help incoming freshmen become acclimated not only to B-CU but it's their F.I.R.S.T. step to becoming a true Wildcat. The program consists of week-long workshops that will focus on leadership qualities, school tradition, life skills and community outreach. It will focus on our core values of Faith, Integrity, Respect, Service, and Thirst for Knowledge. At the conclusion of the week, the students will be inducted into the university and officially be considered Wildcats!
