Family Orientation

Welcome to the CSUSM Family!

We are pleased to offer several Family Orientations for guests of First Year Students. Family Orientations run concurrently with selected First Year Student Orientation sessions. When making their own reservation, students are permitted to make reservations for up to 2 guests and the fee is $45 per guest (spaces are limited).

The Family Orientation experience is a full day experience, where guests will attend a separate session from their student and they will have the opportunity to:

  • Hear about helpful campus resources available to CSUSM students
  • Take a campus tour
  • Interact with current student leaders serving on the volunteer Orientation Team
  • Hear how to best support your student as they begin their transition to college
  • Learn what it means to be a CSUSM Cougar
  • Meet faculty and staff who are dedicated to providing your student with a quality experience at CSUSM and more.

Please encourage your student to check their email and this website frequently for Orientation updates!

Guests are also invited to join the "Cougar Family Network" to receive campus news and updates throughout the year!
