Nearly 6,000 students and parents expected to attend community-building event for SF State's largest resident freshman class to date
WHAT: SF State Welcome Days. This first annual event will welcome freshmen with workshops, guest speakers, sample classes and activities designed to build community among the Class of 2011.
WHY: SF State is becoming more of a "destination" campus for students outside of the Bay Area. Roughly half of the class of 2011 -- more freshmen than ever before -- will be living on campus, according to the SF State Office of Student Housing.
WHO: Nearly 6,000 freshmen and their families are expected on campus.
Parents will attend sample classes alongside their children. For example, in "Contemporary Political and Moral Issues," a mini-course taught by Joel Kassiola, Dean of the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, parents and students will debate the most controversial social issues of the day and draft written arguments.
WHEN: 8 a.m. – 10
p.m. Aug. 23 (parents and students)
WHERE: SF State campus, 1600 Holloway Ave. (at 19th Avenue), San Francisco
