There have been some changes at Oxy due to the pandemic, but what’s stayed the same is our commitment to student success. We look forward to welcoming you back to campus in Fall 2021!

Our Summer Sessions and Welcome Week events are designed to support, inspire and empower both our first-years, rising sophomores and transfer students as they arrive on campus for the first time in Fall 2021. By building a sense of community that connects students to faculty, staff, administrators, and each other, we hope to foster an appreciation of Oxy’s commitment to equity, excellence, and service.

Stay tuned for further updates on what campus life will be like this fall for all students! Meanwhile, take a look at the latest planning information.
