CBS Circles

Join a CBS Circle to help you transcend the checklist mentality and make the most of your remaining time in CBS by doing something that matters to you. 

Students work on a project in a group

The CBS Circles program is a professional development opportunity for CBS juniors, seniors, and transfer students. Circles are small groups of students who meet regularly to learn, develop, and connect with one another around a specific topic or goal. Each Circle has a paid facilitator, called a Circle Guide, who initiates the idea for the topic or goal of that Circle.

Circles can be designed around a variety of topics. For example, past Circles included topics focused on initiating change or action in pursuit of a common goal, such as pre-professional school preparationexploring career options, finding research opportunities, or getting involved on campus. Other past Circles focused on exploring topics of personal interest in more depth, such as reading books, learning about healthcare disparities, coding, or learning about science policy.
