Family & Guest Orientation

  • ''A very informative as well as enjoyable experience.''
  • ''Your student orientation team was excellent. It really gives a good example of the high quality education the students can expect.''
  • ''I feel a lot more informed and confident!''

Orientation is not just for students, but also is an important time for families! We have designed a special program to address the questions and concerns family members (parents, guardians, brothers, sisters, grandparents, blended family, etc.) may have as they prepare to join the Cal State East Bay community. Family members play a key role in helping students succeed in college. Family Orientation is a full-day program, separate from the New Student Orientation. Family and friends attending Family Orientation will have an opportunity to connect with their students during lunch and the Campus Resource Fair.


We offer three kinds of Family and Guest Orientation Programs:

Freshman Family Orientation - This program is in English, and is designed for family of incoming Freshmen

Spanish Family Orientation - This program is fully in Spanish, and is designed for family of incoming Freshmen

Transfer Guest Orientation - This program is designed for family and guests of incoming Transfers
