It’s symbolic of the caring and supportive staff, professors, students, and alumni in our comunidad that will welcome you and your familias as you start your journey at Cal.
Our Welcome event to transition into Familia Orientation week takes place on Sunday, August 8th, from 1:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
During Familia Orientation week students and their families will receive information on how to thrive on campus as a Latinx student. You will learn about campus resources and community support networks. Some of the workshops for the week include the following:
Parent Session - Orientación para padres y familiares: Juntos apoyando a su estudiante

Latinx Student Organizations
What is Graduate School? - research and resources for new students
Life After Cal - Consejos from Chicanx Latinx Alumni
