After one of the most competitive admission periods in San Diego State history, a new and diverse class of Aztecs is just a summer away from starting their first semester at SDSU. The first step in their new education starts at New Student Orientation.
New Student Orientation is the first event for new Aztecs. The day-long orientation blends technology with personal attention to provide students with one-on-one advising, chances to meet with faculty, and an information fair. While learning necessary skills such as WebPortal registration and class selection, students are exposed to a lot more than academic advising. Orientation days are scheduled by major so students also get to interact with faculty and staff within their discipline. This gives them a chance to connect with other new students who share similar interests. Many new students are already getting to know each other on an SDSU Class of 2014 Facebook group, coming together with a classic SDSU community spirit.
New friends, new organizations, and new opportunities pave the way for the most successful first years at State. Orientation is a valuable opportunity to take initiative and get plugged in early to everything the campus and its culture has to offer. New connections made at orientation can last throughout your years at SDSU.
So new students, get excited for your first run as an Aztec! You’ll learn the ropes, meet new people, and make your transition to SDSU that much smoother. Register for orientation today and get talking on the Freshman and Transfer Orientation event pages on Facebook.
