I encourage you to become familiar with the contents of this document so that you may take full advantage of the extraordinary opportunities and resources available to you at Cumberland University.

The origin of Cumberland University in Lebanon is with a small college of log cabin buildings in Kentucky in 1825. We are, therefore, only 12 years away from beginning our third century of service. You, as today’s students at Cumberland, will be the leaders in business, industry, and the professions that will be a part of our third century, and we are committed to preparing you well.

See you around campus,
