Zoom Orientation

From the Bruin on orientation during coronavirus crisis: New student orientations will move online in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Orientation dates will follow the original schedule, said Roxanne Neal, the assistant vice provost of UCLA’s New Student and Transition Programs. 

Just like they have in the past, orientations will include three-day sessions for first-years, one-day sessions for transfers and one-day sessions for parents and families. All sessions will offer live presentations, introductory videos and interactive components with new student advisors and peers, Neal said. “We’re trying to emulate everything that we had in the programming from the in-person version in the versions we’re creating right now,” Neal said. 

Incoming students can sign up for orientation beginning June 3 on MyUCLA. Before their session, they will receive a Zoom link for their orientation group, in which they will participate in group discussions and information sessions. Students will still have one-on-one academic advising and class enrollment sessions with their NSAs over Zoom, Neal said...
