Event Details and FAQs

Golden Bear Orientation is a mandatory week-long orientation before classes begin for the spring semester, replacing Cal Student Orientation (CalSO) as the introductory program welcoming students to UC Berkeley.

The Cal Alumni Association and the Cal Alumni Student Association work closely together to provide students opportunities to connect with alumni at all stages of the student life cycle to support their academic and professional endeavors.

Career Connections events require very little preparation. Alumni volunteers will be organized into networking groups based on their industry expertise. You will simply chat with interested students, share your path from Cal to career, and offer advice to those who hope to follow in your footsteps.
