New Student Orientation

For Traditional Undergraduate Students

Meet Your Mentors

At New Student Orientation you will officially check into Cal Lutheran. You will be ushered by your Peer Advisors through activities geared to introduce you to the CLU community.

You will meet your classmates, figure out where your classes are, find out what the surrounding community has to offer, move into your residence hall (if you are living on campus) and much more! You will also meet your Mentor Team which is made up of two to four people.

  • Peer Advisor - An upperclassmen student leader who is responsible for guiding you through the first weekend and co-teaching your Freshman Seminar course during the Fall Semester. NOTE: Some groups have two Peer Advisors.
  • Faculty Mentor - A member of the CLU faculty who is your initial academic advisor and also teaches your Freshman Seminar class with your Peer Advisor(s) and Administrative Mentor.
  • Administrative Mentor - A university administrator whose primary task is to help you succeed administratively at CLU. They can assist you with a wide-range of issues or questions.
