Introduction to Cal State Fullerton

Incoming Students and Their Parents Get an Education on Transitioning to Life on Campus

July 16, 2007


Hundreds of incoming freshmen, transfer students and their parents are taking part in New Student Orientation at Cal State Fullerton.

New Student Orientation

The program introduces students to the campus, the university’s course registration process, academic expectation and requirements, as well as academic advisement — all in an effort to make the transition to CSUF smoother.

Students also have the opportunity to meet fellow new students, especially some who are also majoring in the same academic field, and faculty members.

Participants in the Family Orientation program have the opportunity to tour the campus, attend workshops, meet faculty, staff and administrators of the university, as well as learn strategies for their role as support-system providers for their students.
