connect to HHD

CONNECT to HHD has been designed to support and enhance the first-year experience of incoming students. Our goal is to ensure a successful transition to CSUF through delivered workshops and events. Events hosted by CONNECT to HHD encourage students to network and create a support system with HHD staff, faculty, and fellow student peers. The workshops offered will provide students the opportunity to develop holistically and attain key skills for a successful first year through topics such as transitioning into CSUF, time management, understanding the Titan Degree Audit, stress management and wellness, and more.
