During Cal U’s Welcome Weekend, we get ready for the new school year and welcome all
of our new students and their families to campus.
Our weekend starts with Move-In Day on Aug. 24 and continues throughout the evening
with First Night. Then, a weekend full of activities and experiences helps become
familiar with the University’s resources, meet new people and make new friends.
Welcome Weekend is a packed schedule with events to help transition to Cal U. See
what is happening on campus.
Build Your Own Exploration Choose from a variety of activities of Saturday, Aug. 25 to have some fun, meet other
members of your class and learn about Cal U. Whether you are seeking adventure, games
and exercises, cultural experiences or shopping – Cal U has an activity for you.
Join us for a Cal U Tradition! The annual Parent & Family Move-in Day Picnic is an
indoor picnic in a much needed cooler environment, with no weather restrictions. The
picnic serves as a smooth transitional event that offers a final opportunity for parents
and family members to have last minute questions answered, meet and greet others,
gather additional information, and enjoy a memorable lunch with your student before
Attendees are encouraged to sign up for the picnic by August 20, 2018. Questions can be directed to Randi Minerva at
