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 $52* 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, and t-shirt. Come spend the night with us at Orientation!

*A limited amount of financial assistance is available for students who want to attend F.R.O.S.H Night but are unable to pay the full cost. If approved, the F.R.O.S.H Night fee will be reduced from $52 to $27. Fee reduction requests must be received by May 23rd and will not be accepted the day of Orientation. Contact (916) 278-4794 for more details. F.R.O.S.H Night Fee Reduction Form.

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

  1. Meet other new students before school starts!
  2. Experience AMAZING campus programs. Have you ever climbed a ropes course, tried salsa dancing, or Kayaked?
  3. 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.
