  NoticeCOVID-19 Updates for 2020-21 Golden Bear Orientationx
The latest updates on the evolving COVID-19 policies and resources for the campus community

After Golden Bear Orientation, you may participate in Getting Your Bearings, a collection of events sponsored by campus departments and student organizations, for newly admitted undergraduates. In previous years, Getting your Bearings started on the first day of classes and lasted three weeks. This year, we are expanding Getting Your Bearings to take place throughout your first semester!

You may choose from dozens of events, participating in the ones that mean the most to you.

Check out the Cal Events app for events and links. And, we will be sending out emails every month outlining new events.

Although it is not mandatory, Getting Your Bearings offers ways you can shape your experience at Cal, dig deeper into community, and just have fun!
