Belong to the Business & Technology Community

The majority of your time will be spent outside the classroom. How you spend that time is important to position yourself for future success. Elevate your UNK experience! The second and third floors of Centennial Towers West are dedicated for business and technology students who want to:

  • Easily interact and engage with other students who share your major and interests, which results in forming strong friendships
  • Take common courses and form study groups with other students you live with
  • Learn where to be involved from your peers
  • Receive opportunities to develop your CliftonStrengths and join CBT clubs
  • Participate in specific activities to network with upperclassmen and employers

Students in the CBT Community will also receive a $1,000 scholarship that consists of a $500 CBT scholarship (minimum) and a $500 housing waiver. To apply for the CBT Community and scholarship, complete the General Incoming Freshmen Scholarship Application on MyBLUE. The deadline is March 1.

You must be admitted to UNK to be eligible. Apply to UNK if you haven’t.

I’m able to WORK CLOSELY with my peers who live on the same floor. The CBT Community offers opportunities to MAKE FRIENDS and get involved on campus. You also have access to great resources in the business world. I’m able to MAKE CONNECTIONS with those who are on the same path as me.
