Summer 2015 Orientation Dates

To: UCSC Community

From: Rosa M. Plaza, Director of Orientation

Summer Orientation is our opportunity as a campus to formally welcome newly matriculated UCSC students and their families into our community of scholars. Orientation is designed to facilitate the transition of our new students, ensure an understanding of our many academic opportunities and expectations, and promote a healthy cultural and social integration into the campus and college system. The highly collaborative efforts across campus are in support of student retention and graduation in a timely fashion. New frosh may choose to attend a one-day or an overnight experience and transfer attend the one designated program to address their unique needs.

Please calendar the Summer 2015 Orientation dates:

- Tuesday, July 21 (Frosh Day)

- Wednesday, July 22 (frosh Day)

*Overnight program participants (Students stay overnight in the residence halls.)

Faculty, staff, and the greater campus community play an invaluable role for students, and your continued participation in Orientation is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, feedback or want to share ideas for future programming, please contact Rosa M. Plaza at
