Coming Soon: FYE Connection Award
The FYE Team is pleased to announce the FYE Connection Award, made possible through the generous funding of the Spirit of CSN Award and the CSN Foundation. The FYE Connection Award is designed to help new CSN students get connected to campus and the First Year Experience. The Award is a $250 bookstore voucher to be raffled to 40 students who attend the New Student Coyote Convocation event in August and at least one additional FYE event (each additional FYE event will earn students another entry into the final drawing, with a maximum of 10 entries). The drawing for winners will take place after the First 100 Days Celebration in December and bookstore vouchers will be available for award winners to use in the Spring 2021 semester.

At CORE Virtual Engagement Events you will connect with the CSN community, learn about the many resources and support services CSN has to offer, and meet faculty, staff and services in our live Virtual Resource Fair.
As a result of completing orientation, our goals are for students to experience the following learning outcomes:

- Enhance knowledge of career paths, degrees, and student success
- Cultivate an awareness and exposure to CSN campus resources
- Communicate students’ rights and responsibilities
- Understand where and when to obtain academic advising help
- Enhance knowledge of student activities, student leadership and service-learning opportunities
- Complete the first steps enrollment process
Orientation will help answer questions that are common to new students, introduce you to student resources and services, connect you with faculty, staff, and other students, and put you on the path to a successful transition to CSN and college life. At CSN, we have a two-part process for orientation.
Part 1. Complete the required new student online orientation. You can access the New Student Online Orientation link in the box above or below the picture to begin the orientation.
