Pre-OLÉ! Programs

Pre-OLÉ! Programs are optional opportunities that allow new freshmen students to come to campus earlier that regular move-in day (August 31).

They are exciting opportunities to connect with student leaders, meet your new classmates, and gain a better understanding of college life, all while having some exceptional experiences in and around San Diego. While these are completely optional programs, they are very popular and space is very limited.
