First-Year Experience

Student Life

Welcome to the Concordia Eagle Community!

The faculty and staff at Concordia University Irvine are very eager to welcome you to CUI. We are excited that you have chosen Concordia University for your educational experience. Whether you are a new freshman or a transfer student, you will soon be balancing a schedule that includes classes, homework, and social activities. The transition from high school or from a community college to a four-year university is not always an easy one.

The Office of First-Year Experience Programs & Initiatives focuses on providing you a welcoming and supportive environment that prepares you with valuable resources that are critical in transitioning successfully here at Concordia University Irvine. Our office is available to help you navigate your first year and make CUI your new home!


Contact the Office of First-Year Experience Programs & Initiatives at [email protected]. The Office of First-Year Experience Programs & Initiatives has been diligently planning orientation. CUI's orientation hosts a variety of fun-filled activities where you are able to meet your Peer Advising Leader (PAL), fellow classmates, faculty, and campus resources while learning what Concordia is all about. Your attendance and participation in orientation is highly encouraged.
