Cal State LA is pleased to offer an optional Overnight Orientation program!
We hope you will choose to participate in our Overnight Orientation program. Overnighters attend a full day of programming on a Thursday, spend the night in University housing and attend a half day of programming on Friday. This enhanced Orientation experience offers you the opportunity to bond with a smaller group of students, and learn much more about your new campus home through a combination of activities, games, quizzes and workshops.
Overnight Orientation is also a chance to have fun! Our Open Mic Pajama Party will give you a chance to showcase your talents in music, poetry, comedy and more!
When you start fall semester, you will be more familiar with the resources available, more comfortable with your campus home, and you might have a friend or two to hang out with!
