"EOP was there for me even before I started my education at Chico State and became more like a family to me than a support service."
– Veronica Coates, School Psychologist
Orientation programs are offered to all new EOP students. Some first-time freshmen are required to participate in the Summer Bridge program. All other first-time freshmen and transfer students are encouraged to attend Summer Orientation. Services include academic advising and registration assistance, information on major and career options, presentations on available support services, and an introduction to university life and the Chico environment.
A half-day orientation is offered just prior to the start of the semester to assist both new freshman and transfer students with their transition to Chico State and to answer last-minute questions.
