What is The C.U.E.?
Webster’s Dictionary defines cue as “a signal (as a word, phrase, or bit of stage business) to a performer to begin a specific speech or action.” At Cumberland University, the C.U.E. serves as a hint or indication of what is expected from you as a Cumberland University student over the course of your first year, as well as an initial guide for your four years on campus.
The C.U.E. is a required program for all incoming first-year students. It is designed to help you make a smooth transition from high school to college. We offer a one-and-a-half-day program to prepare you for your first semester at Cumberland University.
Held the Monday & Tuesday before fall classes begin, the C.U.E. program is an experience designed to help first-year students make friends, discover Cumberland traditions, prepare to excel in class, and explore student groups and activities.
On the first day of the C.U.E., you’ll explore and learn about campus in small groups, which will be led by one of our Peer Mentors as well as learn about all the organizations you can get involved with at Cumberland. On the second day of the program, you will learn more about the expectations of being a student at Cumberland, and how to avoid some of the pitfalls that can occur.
We look forward to an intense two days with you but as you’ll see from the schedule, opportunities abound for you to get involved early at Cumberland!
