New campus, new classes, new friends, new routine.

Starting college can be a dramatic life change for students—a milestone that is both exciting and overwhelming. Orientation programmes can ease the transition into campus life by helping students become familiar with their new environment and their peers. For some students, however, facing a unique set of challenges requires a more tailored approach for becoming acclimated to college. The type of support each student needs can vary based on his or her background and life circumstance. Firstgeneration, low-income and students of colour often face barriers that put them at a disadvantage compared to their peers. For these first-year and transfer students, CSU campuses have developed Transition to College programmes that support their academic success.

Empowering Parents to Support Students

In addition to providing support on campus, transition programs are ensuring students also receive adequate support at home. Humboldt State University’s New Family Orientation are offering orientations in English during students’ move-in dates, enabling every parent to form a relationship with campus staff and become empowered to provide academic support at home. At California State University, Fresno, the usual one-day orientation is extended to a yearlong programme through the First-Generation Families Support Programme.

First-generation students and their families learn to navigate the academic roadmap by attending various events about the school’s programmes and resources. Families complete the year feeling more connected to the campus and to other first-generation families, increasing each student’s likelihood of staying in school through their first year. Cal State is dedicated to providing the support and services necessary to engage all students in the college experience, contributing to higher retention and graduation rates.
