New Student Orientation Family Handbook




Every semester the California State University, Sacramento welcomes new students with loads of information to get them on the right educational footing and to help navigate the many questions and concerns that incoming freshmen have. This guidebook was designed and edited as an informational packet for new students and their families.


In normal circumstances, these packets would be delivered with swag bags and other goodies during freshman orientation. In times of Covid-19, this packet was delivered to new students via a drive-thru orientation where new students and their families would drive onto campus and pick up their orientation materials in their car to facilitate safe social distancing practices.
