Wildcat Welcome 2018

The annual Wildcat Welcome was held in August and September of 2018. The lively event provided a wealth of information on programs and events hosted by staff, faculty, students, and volunteers to help welcome our incoming students and their families. Report states that 97% of those who attended events report that Wildcat Welcome made them “feel more welcome at Chico State. Similarly, 86% reported that Wildcat Welcome activities helped them “meet other students.” Finally, 90% of students who attended welcome activities reported this helped them “find information on campus support services,” while 90% felt Wildcat Welcome activities helped them “learn about student groups on campus.”

“In joining the Chico State community as the vice president for Student Affairs in January, I had the privilege to attend many of the Wildcat Welcome events. As someone who has been in higher education for more than 25 years, I was truly impressed with the amount of energy and dedication from staff, faculty, students and volunteers that went into making this program truly meaningful for our new students and their families. Thank you to the entire campus community for making the event a great success!” – Dr. Milton Lang
