Orientation & New Student Programs

Parent & Guest Orientation Program

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 in their transition to Chico State.

Please note that the Parent/Guest Program is a separate program which 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 student throughout their years at CSU, Chico. You will be with your student during welcome, at lunch, and again at program conclusion, but separated for part of the day.

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