California State University-Channel Islands
The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) is always a great place to start for qualifying first-time freshman But we have clubs and orgs fair the second week of school and a welcome back event the first week of school! There's also student workers stationed around campus the first few days to make sure new students can get to their classes correctly and on time.
