New Student Orientation

All entering new students are required to attend an Orientation program at California State University, Bakersfield.  Orientation is required to familiarize yourself with the university.  It is the opportunity to meet with administrators, faculty and staff.  You will hear from many student service programs, academic departments and student clubs and organizations designed to assist and help you while you are attending CSUB.  It will also be the perfect time to establish new relationships with other students with similar goals and aspirations.  As we say here, "Be Brilliant, Belong, Be CSUB."
