We're so pleased to have you join us for Chico Preview! We have eight amazing departments in the college, with many majors to choose from. What they all have in common are a focus on hands-on experiences, lots of interaction with your professors, and commitment to the success of each student who comes to us.  Graduates from all our programs find fulfilling and rewarding careers. 

When you get here, be sure to come to my office and introduce yourself! We look forward to seeing you at Chico Preview.
