COVID-19: Campus moves to virtual instruction for the fall 2020 semester. More Info...

Freshman Leadership Opportunity

Freshman Leadership Opportunity (FLO) is a program designed specifically for first-year students who are looking for ways to get involved with the Chico State campus and community. FLO provides students with the opportunity to identify and develop leadership skills and qualities within themselves, and then reflect and determine ways to implement these skills into their lives. FLO is a year-long program that will strive to provide students with a sense of community and support as we navigate this semester online and to provide mentorship for students throughout the year. We also encourage students to explore other opportunities across campus to get involved in our diverse network of students and programs.
