First Year Experience

Supporters & Family

Being a supporter

Parents, guardians, siblings, partners, extended family and friends, congratulations, you are now officially a Supporter to a CSUMB Student!

Being a good supporter means learning about the resources available to your student at CSUMB and helping to keep your student engaged on campus throughout their first year and beyond.

Are you interested in joining your student during New Student Otter Orientation? Great! We designed the Supporter track just for you! During both our Transfer and New Student Programs, we have a Supporter program with information specific to those supporting new students at CSUMB. Please be aware there will be sessions you attend with your student and sessions you attend on your own. Come ready to learn about CSUMB and becoming part of the Otter family!
