WELCOME
Hello New Anteaters!

As the Director of the Center for Student Leadership, I am honored to be one of the first
people to welcome you to UCI. We are so excited you are joining the Anteater family!

Whether you are here for mini-TSPOP, SPOP, T-SPOP or ISPOP, I sincerely hope you are
enjoying your Orientation experience so far. Our Orientation Programs were originally started by students (way
back in 1967) and have been largely student-driven ever since. They will always be about you and your welfare
above all else.

There is much to be gained through your Orientation experience from understanding academic life at UCI and
connecting with resources that will help you succeed to learning how to navigate the campus and making friends.
Above all else, we want you to leave Orientation knowing two things: you matter and you are part of something
very special.

As a UCI student, your experiences, your perspectives and your voice all matter. Where you come from matters.
Who you are is important and this campus is incredibly lucky to have you. There may come times when you doubt
that, but we want you to know that you are enough and that, in those times of self-doubt, you are not alone.

You are part of the Anteater family now. As such, we want you to know that we’ve got your back. Anteaters
look out for one another and recognize that we will all struggle at times. In and out of those struggles we have
a responsibility to one another. Each of us has the power to make this campus comfortable and welcoming for
everyone in the Anteater family, to uplift those around us and to intervene when our community or anyone in it is
disrupted or harmed. We challenge you to live up to that responsibility (and will strive to do so ourselves).

As we reflect on UCI’s bright past and look forward toward our brilliant future, remember that we are a family and
we will achieve that brilliance together. Take care of yourself and one another and know that we will always be
here for you.

On behalf of the Center for Student Leadership and Student Life and Leadership, thank you for choosing UCI,
welcome again to the Anteater family and cheers to what will no doubt be a fantastic first year at UCI!

With respect,

mike knox

A MESSAGE FROM DEAN OF STUDENTS
DR. RAMEEN TALESH
                     Welcome to UC Irvine! This student handbook will assist you in navigating the campus along with
                     highlighting the wonderful resources we have to offer you.

                     Student Life at UCI is vibrant and we rely on the amazing power of our students to connect, be involved
                     and engage in the enterprise of learning. Part of the charge of Student Life & Leadership (SLL) is to
                     ensure that students feel connected, know that they belong and encourage involvement in the learning
                     environment while promoting positive mentoring.

                    I would like to express my deep appreciation to the professional staff of SLL and the dedicated work
                    that they put forth in prioritizing students first. UCI students are cultivating skills inside and outside of
the classroom to position themselves as future leaders in our community and in the world.

We hope that you will utilize this handbook throughout the year to help answer your questions and get you pointed in the
right direction for support. Congratulations on joining the Anteater family and taking your first step toward becoming an
“Antleader.”

Rameen Talesh, Ed.D.
Assistant Vice Chancellor, Student Life & Leadership and Dean of Students

UCI PRINCIPLES OF COMMUNITY
UCI is a multicultural community of people from diverse backgrounds. Our activities, programs, classes, workshops, lectures
and everyday interactions are enriched by our acceptance of one another, and we strive to learn from each other in an
atmosphere of positive engagement and mutual respect.

Our legacy for an increasingly multicultural academic community and for a learning climate free from expressions of bigotry
is drawn from the United States and California Constitutions and from the charter of the University of California, which
protects diversity and reaffirms our commitment to the protection of lawful free speech. Affirmation of that freedom is an
effective way of ensuring that acts of bigotry and abusive behavior will not go unchallenged within the university. Tolerance,
civility and mutual respect for diversity of background, gender, ethnicity, race and religion are as crucial within our campus
community as are tolerance, civility and mutual respect for diversity of political beliefs, sexual orientation and physical
abilities. Education and a clear, rational and vigorous challenge are positive responses to prejudice and acts of bigotry.

The University of California’s nondiscrimination policy, in compliance with applicable federal and state law, covers treatment
in university programs and activities as well as admission and employment. UCI expects all those affiliated with it to adhere
to the letter and the spirit of university nondiscrimination policies and related federal and state laws.

Allegations of physical abuse, threats of violence, or conduct that threatens the health or safety of any person on University
of California property or in connection with official university functions will be investigated promptly and where found to
exist, appropriate actions will be taken in accordance with university policy.

All who work, live, study and teach at UCI are here by choice and, as part of that choice, should be committed to these
Principles of Community which are an integral part of the guidelines by which the UCI community can successfully conduct
its affairs.

What is a Registered Campus Organization (RCO)?
A student-led organization that’s comprised of students, faculty
and/or staff who come together to pursue common goals, also known
as “clubs.” There are more than 600 campus organizations at UCI
ranging in categories from Hobbies & Interest to Academics & Honors.
We are confident you’ll find a community that is right for you! Students
also have the option of starting an organization of their interest.

Anteater Involvement Fair | September 24, 2018
A place where new and current students can learn more about
UCI’s varied campus organizations, what they do on campus
and in the community, and how to become involved in the
organization. If you’re looking for ways to get involved, if you
want to meet new friends, and if you want to learn more about
UCI’s campus spirit, then attending the Anteater Involvement Fair is a great place to
start! You’ll walk away from this event with more ways to become involved at UCI
than you ever could have imagined.

Pro Tips for Navigating the Anteater Involvement Fair
Many students who attend Anteater Involvement Fair for the first time become overwhelmed because there are
over 300 campus organizations in Aldrich Park vying for your attention to recruit you into their organization. We
put together a list of tips so that you can be better prepared when you attend the Anteater Involvement Fair.
     1.	 Visit Aldrich Park ahead of time and scope out the different sections of the park – if you can’t visit the
         park then view the campus map of the park. Visit an information booth at the event to get a map of the
         park and a list of campus organizations.
     2.	 There will be A LOT of organizations in the park – try to scope out the ones you want to visit before
         heading into the park. Ask a volunteer to help direct you to the appropriate booth. You can view a full list
         of campus organizations at campusorgs.uci.edu.
     3.	 You may not be able to visit all of the organizations you planned to see, but you will have more
         opportunities during Welcome Week to meet campus organizations boothing on Ring Road. You can also
         always find contact information for an organization by visiting campusorgs.uci.edu.
     4.	 There are performances by very talented UCI students at the stage in the largest section of Aldrich Park –
         don’t miss this! There is also a food vendor in this section of the park.
     5.	 Bring a water bottle! Stay hydrated & HAVE FUN!

The Center for Excellence in Writing and Communication provides
consultations for UCI undergraduate students in three ways: by appointment,
as a walk-in service and through email.

Our consultations do not cost additional money beyond student fees
you have already paid, and they are designed to accomplish some of the
following goals:
  •   Raise your awareness of academic expectations in the university
  •   Understand your prompt and begin brainstorming
  •   Identify what parts of your writing need work
  •   Provide a model for revising and editing
  •   Promote consistent, long-term writing improvement

Though your paper will not be finished at the end of a session, you will leave
with important tips and tools for completing your writing project.

We also offer advice about presentations and other forms of communication.

Please see our website at writingcenter.uci.edu for more information.

waiver criteria, then you must submit an online waiver request no later than the posted waiver deadlines. Visit the
SHC website (Health Insurance page) for detailed information and instructions.
