New Student and Family Weekend

New Student Weekend is a campus-wide celebration that will ensure first-time freshmen and transfer students make a successful transition to California State University, Bakersfield. With free food, as well as fun games & activities for all families, New Student Convocation Weekend will create an opportunity for students and parents to be recognized and welcomed as official members of the Roadrunner family. In addition, all Roadrunner Parents Association Members in attendance will participate in a special pinning ceremony as recognition of their membership. This academic tradition is hosted by President Mitchell, faculty, staff and student leaders, and is a special event that you do not want to miss.

The weekend is filled with programs that connect our students and their families to campus life, campus resources and our campus culture! Join us as we carry out our tradition at CSUB!!
