Welcome to Cal State LA! We are New Student and Parent Programs, a department dedicated to helping first-year freshmen and transfer students, as well as their parents and families, transition into their new college home. Our goal for this blog is to encourage and foster communication between parents and students by informing parents about what’s happening on campus. As a department, NSPP conducts Golden Eagle Orientation for freshmen and transfer students, Golden Eagle Parent Orientation for parents and guardians, and hosts or assists with other new student and parent programs, such as Parent Academy and Golden Eagle Fest, and other programs for new families throughout the academic year. Parents or guardians interested in learning about upcoming programs and events should join our Parent Connection email list here.
