Nearly 4,400 new students will attend Chico State this fall. Almost all of these students participated in the Big "C" Welcome on Friday, August 19. This event is part of Wildcat Welcome and has become an annual tradition to welcome the newest class to the Wildcat family! See the photo up close.

Young Alumni Bring Prospective Students to Campus
The Chico State Young Alumni Network invited high school students from the Boys and Girls Clubs of the North Valley to campus for a day filled with campus exploration, education, and games to help students prepare for college. The visit took place on August 3 and began with a scavenger hunt led by young alumni volunteers. Next, the teens demonstrated what they learned through team challenges inside the Bell Memorial Union. See more photos.

Student Entrepreneurs Envision Changing Their World
For nearly a month, college students from five African nations got a taste of what it takes to start businesses designed to solve society's ills. The strategy is known as social entrepreneurship, and it's the focus of a new "boot camp" that launched at Chico State's College of Business this semester. Under the guidance of faculty and staff, the 20 students poured over operations, finance, marketing, leadership, and presentation skills. Working in seven teams, the students also devised socially-minded businesses. Read more.

Portland Alumni Network Gains Traction
Earlier this year, a group of alumni in Portland came together to provide local alumni with opportunities to socialize, network, and stay connected to Chico State. Their launch event took place in May and attracted both local alumni and those who were visiting Portland that weekend. They've continued to grow and are hosting their second event on September 17 at the TeSoAria tasting room.
