Orientation & New Student Programs

Parent/Guest Program Details

Your son or daughter will be entering more than just a school this fall — he or she will be entering a community. CSU, Chico will become your son's or daughter’s home away from home. Parents play an important role in students’ transition to their new home and in their success in college, so our program is designed to support you -  as you support your student.

Please note that the Parent/Guest Program runs concurrently with our Student Program. It includes separate activities, workshops, and presentations which provide information and resources that will enable you to help your son or daughter throughout his or her years at CSU, Chico. You will be with your student during welcome, at lunch, and again at program conclusion. We encourage you to support your student and share in their discovery of Chico by attending the Parent/Guest Program at Summer Orientation.

Please note: The Parent/Guest program is not designed for siblings or children. Please arrange childcare in advance.
