2021–22 Orientation Welcomes New Students to CA

From Friday, August 27, through Monday, August 30, the Student Life Office hosted Orientation for over 100 new CA students and families. New community members gathered on campus to learn about CA’s culture and traditions and to prepare for the school year ahead. Students in attendance connected with fellow classmates and Orientation Leaders, returning students who welcomed newcomers to campus and shared their CA expertise. Students also met their advisors, heard from administrators, and engaged in Community and Equity programming. Other activities included group games around campus and a celebratory square dance in the Academy Garden. We look forward to starting the year with these wonderful additions to our community. Welcome to CA!
