"CSU, Chico offers you a challenging learning experience within an educational community that is totally dedicated to the success of our students.  This is the most important measure of our performance, and we do everything we can to make sure it happens.  But this is not a passive experience.  We expect that our students come here to be contributing members of our campus and good citizens of the larger Chico community.  If this is what you seek, we are ready to nurture your success and celebrate your achievements."  -President Paul Zingg


Welcome to the California State University, Chico Summer Orientation Program!  Summer Orientation is designed to provide you with the information you need to get the very most out of your college experience!   During your session, you will have the opportunity to meet representatives from a wide array of programs on campus, learn about general education and graduation requirements and receive faculty advising in your selected major.  By attending an orientation session, you have the earliest possible access to class registration and you'll have the chance to connect with faculty, staff and other students. 

We encourage you to sign up for a session on-line as soon as possible, as our session dates fill quickly.  If after reviewing our website, you have any issues with registering for a session, or additional questions about orientation, please call (530) 898-5714 or email ENR-SumoResTech@csuchico.edu
