Thank you for a successful Golden Bear Orientation

October 30, 2019

 Student Affairs


Dear Colleagues,

We had another successful Golden Bear Orientation (GBO), thanks to you. 

All members of the Golden Bear Orientation Steering Committee and the staff of New Student Services appreciate the many contributions you’ve made on behalf of our new undergraduate students. 

Golden Bear Orientation is a foundation for everything that follows here at UC Berkeley, and at the 2019 event, our students felt your encouragement as they transitioned into our academic community. 

You helped our first-year and transfer students find new friends in their new home. You gave them academic support, guided them toward important resources, and helped them enroll in classes.

Without campuswide support, we couldn’t offer such a robust orientation program for our incoming undergraduates. 

As you know, our GBO student leaders are critical to the program’s overall excellence, and we are beginning our search for 2020 leaders.

If you know or work with an undergraduate student who you believe would be a dedicated GBO Leader and positive role model for UC Berkeley's newly admitted undergraduates, simply fill out this nomination form. Feel free to pass this information along to your campus colleagues. 

Orientation Leaders will receive real-world leadership experience; facilitation, public speaking, team building, and professional skills; exclusive career development opportunities; and swag and memories to last a lifetime. The position is open to undergraduate students of all colleges, majors, and personal attributes. 

Please contact the staff in New Student Services if you have any questions:

Thank you again for contributing your skills and dedication toward Golden Bear Orientation!
