Welcome ThunderWolves!

Orientation is the start of your CSU Pueblo academic journey! 

The New Student Orientation programs are designed to connect you and your family to university academic and support services that will inform and enrich your transition to CSU Pueblo.   

A strong support network is key to a student's success which is the reason we provide guest-specific programming: new student, first generation, family, and military-veteran sessions, opportunities to meet other ThunderWolves, speak to academic representatives, connect with campus resources and staff, and collect business cards. 

It is also a fun time as your orientation leader guides you throughout the day. 

There will also be a chance to win prizes, scholarships, and walk away with SWAG and giveaways!
