The transition from living at home and attending high school to living on your own and managing college classes is a big one for many students. This makes the first year of college different from the rest, and California University of Management's Office of the First Year helps you make the transition successful and enjoyable. Entering and first-year students participate in several activities and programs:
Before the first year begins
After accepting California University of Management's offer of admission, but before your first term class meets, you will take part in several activities to get yourself ready for college:
- Great Beginnings Academic Advising Open Houses: This is a one day visit to get acquainted with the campus and to begin planning your academic program. Dates for these open houses are in June.
Find out more about registering for one of these dates....
- Designs: An interactive, web-based program guides new students in selecting courses for the fall terms. Find out more...
- New Student Orientation: In the week before classes begin, students settle into the residence halls. Students meet their Insight Advising team (Faculty Advisor, upper-class Community Advisor and Residence Advisor) to start getting connected to the CUM community. You will participate in activities ranging from the purely social to academic designed to make this an exciting and fun time for new students.
