Prospective Chico State students will be coming to campus for “Choose Chico!” on Saturday, April 11, which will give them the opportunity to speak with current students and faculty and explore campus through a variety of activities.

“Choose Chico!” is an open house event held every year by the Department of Admissions that allows admitted students and their families to tour the campus and town of Chico.

The day’s events will go from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., kicking off with registration at the Bell Memorial Union. The president’s welcome will occur at 8:30 a.m and 9:15 a.m. in Laxson Auditorium.

Other events include campus and residence hall tours and presentations about financial aid and the honors program. This year there will also be presentations about U-courses.

Students will be able to meet with representatives from colleges and departments across campus. General sessions and tours will also be available in Spanish.

Hector Guzman, a junior and a host of “Choose Chico!,” said the event is a great way to welcome admitted students to Chico State.

“‘Choose Chico!’ gives an opportunity to all our admitted students to get a small glimpse of everything that Chico has to offer,” Guzman said. “It is like our first welcome into our big Chico family.”

Those who are interested in attending “Choose Chico!” must register soon, as online registration closes April 6. More information can be found here.
