Update: Summer 2012 Orientation Dates

To: UCSC Staff and Faculty

From: Rosa M. Plaza, Director of Orientation

Starting July 17, over 4,700 new UC Santa Cruz students and over 3,000 family members will be on our campus for Summer Orientation. Students and family members come to Orientation feeling nervous, excited, scared, and anxious. Lets make this transition less stressful and their experience on campus magnificent! If you encounter students or family members around campus, please greet them and ask if they have questions or need help getting somewhere. These gestures are greatly appreciated and foster a sense of welcome and belonging for our new community members, which will stay throughout their years at UCSC.

Please update your calendars. The confirmed Summer Orientation dates are as follows:

•    Tuesday, July 17  (Frosh)
•    Wednesday, July 18  (Frosh)
•    Friday, July 20  (Transfer)
•    Saturday, July 21  (Frosh)
•    Monday, July 23  (Frosh)
•    Tuesday, July 24  (Frosh)
•    Thursday, July 26  (Frosh)

Faculty, staff, and the greater campus community all play an invaluable role for students. Your continued participation in Orientation is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your continued support!
