Ignite Your Future

Ignite Your Future

Congratulations on your admission to CSU Stanislaus!

Many of you have already applied to live on campus this coming year, but some of you are still exploring your housing options. If you are this person, then we have a program just for you.

It is called IGNITE YOUR FUTURE. Through this program you will be able to stay overnight in university housing the night before your registered NSO program.

Program Information

Participation in the Ignite Your Future program provides incoming students with the opportunity to find out more about the benefits of living on campus. College involves a large investment of time and money on the part of students and their families. This program shares the knowledge and experiences of real life college students.

It conveys information about how being part of the on campus residential community provides a support system through which students know that:

  • They are prepared to be successful in college
  • They can manage their finances, including understanding financial aid
  • They can succeed in college
  • They can acclimate to and be successful at the University
  • They have a supportive network of friends and study partners

During your stay you will hosted by our Resident Assistants who will share their own experiences and pass on the knowledge they’ve gained. As an institution where 79% of incoming freshmen are 1st generation students, the opportunity to engage and converse with other students who have gone through the experience is invaluable.

Programs such as Student Support Services (SSS), the University Honors Program and PACE will also be available to discuss their programs and the unique services they offer to help students successfully navigate college and ultimately graduate.
