Chico, Calif.—Future Chico State students are getting a preview to the place they'll be calling home in a few months.

Tuesday was the first day of summer orientation for the university's incoming freshmen.

It was a small group with just 105 students, but the groups can reach more than 325 people.

There will be a total of 23 sessions and students get the opportunity to meet faculty, register for classes, and meet some of the peers in their major.

Rebecca Berner, one of the coordinators of the orientation, said the transition from high to college can be both an exciting and scary time for families.

"Parents, you know, there's some parents that are super excited and can't wait for their student to leave so they can redecorate the room. And others are, oh goodness, are they going to be okay, so today is really just about helping everyone feel more comfortable," she said.

The last orientation will be held at the end of July.
