Dog Days

Welcome to Dog Days: New Student Orientation!

 

Dog Days: New Student Orientation is a program designed to help new students transition into the University. Whether you are coming in as a transfer student from another college/university or a first-time freshman from high school, we are here to help you acclimate to campus and register for classes.

During orientation students will meet with an academic counselor, a major adviser, and register for classes. In addition to learning about academic requirements, students will hear from a variety of campus programs as well as participate in a resource fair. Dog Days is mandatory for all incoming students.

Spring 2022 Dog Days

Dog Days will have both in-person and virtual formats for orientation this winter for incoming Spring 2022 students. The Dog Days reservation system will open on October 1st and will remain open until November 15th for incoming transfer students. Dog Days Orientation is mandatory for all incoming students and coincides with the accept/decline process through the office of Admissions and Recruitment. Due to limited capacity and safety protocols, no guests will be permitted for students attending in-person.

Details regarding Dog Days will be located in the Admissions packet as well as on this website. After you make your reservation, students will receive instructions prior to their scheduled Dog Day in their Fresno State email. This email will have information to prepare as well as access to the Online Pre-Orientation. Students who choose the virtual format will receive the link to their Virtual Dog Day 24 hours prior to their scheduled orientation in their Fresno State email

Questions can be directed to the Dog Days Office at 559-278-4885 or dogdays@mail.fresnostate.edu.
