The Cardinal Planner is just that – a planner, but it’s also so much more! All new students will receive this planner at Orientation, and it is a great resource and planning tool to be used throughout your first year at CUA.
The pages in the front of the planner provide all kinds of resources such as the academic calendar, campus hours, weekly mass schedules, and office contact information. The planner offers both weekly and monthly views. On each day you will find space for items due that day and space to map out your schedule, as well as campus events, deadlines, and holidays. Each week also includes a to-do list and CUA facts. This planner belongs to you, so take advantage of all the resources it provides and make it your own!
Every week for the first six weeks of the semester, your Cardinal Planner will include a challenge. The goal of this challenge is to get you acquainted with people on campus who will be your go-to resources throughout your time at CUA. After each meeting or event you will write a brief reflection describing your experience. Take a look at the weekly challenges below!
