F.R.O.S.H. Night

F.R.O.S.H. Night stands for "First Year Rockin' Out Shindig Hoopla" Night which is offered during First Year Orientation. During F.R.O.S.H. Night, students stay in the residence halls with other first year students and the orientation leaders. This is a fun activity for all students—even students who plan to commute to Sac State. (Please note that this program is for students only—there are no on-campus accommodations for parents/guests.)

Attending F.R.O.S.H. Night is optional and costs $50 in addition to the First Year Orientation fee. The F.R.O.S.H. Night fee supports: room accomodations (including linens/towels/pillow), dinner, evening activities, staffing, late-night snacks, t-shirt, and breakfast the next morning. Come spend the night with us at Orientation!

TOP 3 reasons students attended F.R.O.S.H. Night last summer:

  1. Meet other new students before school starts!
  2. Get extra help planning their schedule for fall. Orientation leaders are available at F.R.O.S.H. Night to help students plan their schedule, which makes the second day of Orientation (and registration) go much more smoothly.
  3. Experience AMAZING campus programs. Have you ever climbed a ropes course, tried salsa dancing, or spent time at our amazing Aquatic Center? You can at F.R.O.S.H. Night!
