californiacalifornia: our family is coming to orientation--will we get to see a dorm?
67
admissions_jenadmissions_jen(Admissions_Jen): tallindian ----- New students are guaranteed up to 4 consecutive semesters on campus. First-year students will self-select their residence hall spaces and roommates through an online program that allows students to create a personality profile and "meet-and-greet" with other students who have also created profiles. Students can then match themselves up with potential roommates and have a "group leader" select a room, or they can choose to be randomly matched by our Housing Office. This process will begin in early May, and room assignments will be finalized in June.
