We wanted to bring to your attention some exciting programs that have been created by UC Santa Cruz students in order to introduce interested admitted students to the campus. These programs are open to all admitted freshmen and transfer students. Please contact the organizations sponsoring these events (see contact information below) if you are interested in participating, or if you have any questions.
These events take place on campus, Thursday, April 11 through Saturday, April 13.
The African/Black Student Alliance’s program, Destination Higher Education (DHE), introduces newly admitted students to the African/Black community and student life on the UC Santa Cruz campus. DHE provides personal, social, and academic workshops that focus on the Black Experience at UC Santa Cruz and are presented by African/Black students at UC Santa Cruz.
A Step Forward (ASF) introduces UC Santa Cruz, the Filipino Student Association (FSA) community, and college life to newly admitted students. It focuses on depicting a peer-to-peer perspective of the student experience on this campus, and advocating the pursuit of higher education. The three-day event provides students with a chance to meet fellow admitted students to the university, as well as make connections with current UCSC students. It is also a chance to get important information on transitioning smoothly into the university. Workshops, tours, discussion, and networking opportunities allow participants to discover the importance of higher education, and highlight the communities and resources available to them in FSA and at the UC overall.
ORALE, which stands for Oportunidades Rumbo A La Educación, is a program presented by Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano/a de Aztlan (MEChA) in support of the Latino/a community at UC Santa Cruz. ORALE focuses on the Latino/a experience at UC Santa Cruz. The program consists of workshops that educate the students about important aspects of college life, such as student resources, financial aid, academic support, EOP (Educational Opportunity Programs), etc.
