Community for Undergraduate Business Students (CUBS)

The Community for Undergraduate Business Students (CUBS) is a living-learning community created for freshman students in business majors. Students participate in social events, as well as workshops, core classes, tours and community service throughout the year. The program focuses on helping students reach their educational and career goals while forming friendships lasting through their college experience and beyond. Students live in the new village in Douthit Hills in Building E, where students will attend Business 1010 classes and be in close proximity to The Hub.

"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 right downstairs. I loved that as CUBS members, we had sections of classes blocked off just for us. This meant we knew everyone in our class and could easily meet up on our hall for the best study sessions." - Emmala Alfaro, Management major
