A Community for You

Orientation, Campus Life, and Community

Here at Cal U, you will find a community of remarkable students, professors, administrators and alumni working toward a common goal. All are dedicated to building character and building careers - your character and your career!

Here you will find the benefits of a large school in a small setting, a university where you can get to know your professors personally and where faculty and staff are devoted to helping motivate, inspire and bring out the best in individual students. Plus you'll find students helping students through mentoring, tutoring and numerous student groups.

Small enough to feel like family, but large enough for variety and diversity, the Cal U community is reflected in all campus traditions, activities and organizations.

Students at Orientation are introduced to some of Cal U's community.

Cal U for Life: Student Orientation

You and other first-year students will get to know more about the Cal U community during Orientation, which is held before the start of fall semester classes. Here you'll learn about the University's mission, history and traditions, and fellow students will guide you in sessions devoted to important topics such as time management and personal finance. Plenty of fun activities will give you a chance to meet new friends.

At the new student convocation, you could find yourself as one of the lucky beneficiaries of the Cal U for Life Scholarship Fund, which is made possible through the generosity of other students.  It's all part of Cal U for Life, an initiative that helps students make a difference and make the most of the lifetime of opportunities that Cal U offers.

And Orientation is just the start of you finding your place in the Cal U community!

So if you are looking for a university where you can be yourself, knowing you are backed by an entire community dedicated to building character and building careers, look to Cal U.
