Greetings CIBU Alumni

Our Alumni are the key to our school’s future, our current students and our past. Won’t you take a moment? We would really appreciate hearing from you. As part of our compliance for our University accreditation, we are required to report various information from our graduates. This feedback is important to complete our annual accreditation report and the information you provide us is confidential.

We have attached a link to a survey that will just take a few minutes to complete. It would be a great service to us if you could complete it. Your responses are valued and will assist CIBU in making changes and improvements in programs, courses and services.

Thank you. We appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback.

You can help in other ways too. Undergraduates are always looking for places to intern, graduates are looking for new jobs, and everyone is looking for inspiration.  We’ve love to hear from you.  What are you doing now?  Where has your education and career taken you? Perhaps you’d write us a short article about your job, or perhaps you’d let us profile you –right here on our website. Please contact us at to get involved. Thank you.



Characteristics of a Successful Student

Believe it or not, some students enrolled in college do not know what it takes to be successful in the college environment. They understand good and bad grades in a general way, and they sense that they should attend classes, but that is where their knowledge begins and ends.Most instructors know what a good student is – and is not. For one thing, a good student is not necessarily the most intelligent individual in the class.

An interesting point! The following three points are some characteristics of good students. Consider these descriptions of what a hard-working student does and what an instructor likes to see. By learning these characteristics, you may better understand the day-to-day and class-to-class behavior of successful students. The idea is to provide you with guidelines you can follow which will help you get down to the business of becoming a serious, successful student while enrolled at CIBU.

  • Successful students attend classes regularly(see the attendance policy above.) They are on time. They listen and train themselves to pay attention. If they miss a session, they feel obligated to let the instructor know why before class begins. Their excuses are legitimate and reasonable. They make sure they get all missed assignments (by contacting the instructor or another student), and understand specifically what was covered in class. Successful students take responsibility for themselves and their actions.
  • Successful students demonstrate that they care about their grades and are willing to work to improve them. Successful students seem driven to complete their assignments. All work and assignments are turned in, even if some of their responses are not brilliant.
  • Successful students are attentive in class. They do not talk, read, stare out windows, or use their laptops for non-class related use. In other words, they are polite and respectful, even if they get a little bored. They ask questions that the instructor knows many other students may also have.
  • Here are some final thoughts on being a successful student. Throughout your enrollment at CIBU you will have to make many choices; view these choices as opportunities. Do not allow yourself to be burdened with problems; they are really only challenges. Train yourself to put your time and energy into finding solutions to your challenges, not in complaining. You must adjust your attitude and retrain your thought process.You are your own best motivator – only you. Your motivation must come from within yourself. Others may try to encourage you, but you are the only one who can attain what you desire.
