Admissions Campus Events 2014–2015

To: UCSC Staff and Faculty

From:  Michael McCawley, Director of Admissions

As we prepare to welcome our new, incoming students to Summer Orientation, we’re already looking ahead to the next admissions cycle and would like to share two key Admissions dates with the campus.

Preview Day – October 25, 2014

This event provides an opportunity for prospective students (frosh and transfers) and their families to learn about UCSC’s high impact interdisciplinary research, the residential college system, and unique learning environment.

UCSC Spring Spotlight – April 3 to April 11, excluding April 5, 2015              

(Includes specific sessions for transfer students April 10–11)

This annual event provides an opportunity for admitted students and their families to visit the campus and learn more about how UC Santa Cruz might be a good fit.

We are sharing these dates earlier than in years past in response to many requests from our campus partners, allowing for greater advance planning.

Faculty, staff, and current students play a key role in the recruitment and yield of new undergraduate students. If you have any questions, feedback, or ideas on how to enhance the Preview Day or Spring Spotlight programs, please contact Assistant Director Beatrice Atkinson-Myers ( or 459-2352).

I thank you in advance for your commitment and continued partnership in recruiting and yielding the best undergraduate students to UC Santa Cruz!
