On behalf of the Raíces Recruitment and Retention Center (RRRC) and the Chicanx Latinx Student Development Office (CLSD) at UC Berkeley, we would like to invite you to attend our bilingual (English/Spanish) Familia Orientation!
This year we are offering students and their loved ones TWO Familia Orientation events:

[ONLINE] Community Platica: Transitioning to Cal
Sunday, August 13th | 4:00-5:30 PM PST | Zoom
Incoming students and familias are welcome to get advice from current students on what to expect as you transition to UC Berkeley. Current students will share about what to bring, getting used to classes at Cal, dealing with being homesick, safety & security, and much more. This event will not be recorded.

[IN-PERSON] Bienvenida & Resource Fair
Wednesday, August 16th | 1:30-3:30 PM PST | Pauley Ballroom, Martin Luther King Jr. Building
Meet your Cal comunidad! Students and familias will be welcomed by Professor Cristina Mora (Associate Professor of Sociology and Chicano/Latino Studies), meet campus resources, and have the chance to be entered into a raffle.

If you're interested in attending one or both of these events,


If you have any questions, please contact the Chicanx Latinx Student Development Office at (510) 642-1802 or e-mail

We look forward to meeting you all soon!
