​​​​​​​What is Campus and Community Life Orientation?

Campus and Community Life Orientation (CCLO) is your "social phase" of new freshman orientation. Once you arrive on campus and get settled, you will be guided to three required attendance meetings to complete your orientation program. These meetings occur during the beginning of the opening weekend (August 24-25​) of fall semester. Freshman attendance is required at one "No Zebras, No Excuses" meeting, one "Orientation Diversity Presentation" meeting and one "College Life and the Law" meeting. Attendance at Mainstage is strongly encouraged, but not required.
What days and times do I attend required CCLO meetings?
You will attend meetings based on which residence hall you live in. See fall meeting schedule below. Commuting students and students living in CMU apartments may select a performance time of your choice. Attendance is taken with your campus ID card.
Marching Band and Color Guard freshmen will be scheduled to attend required meetings at specific times announced by the School of Music.
What information will be presented at CCLO required meetings?

  • No Zebras, No Excuses: A sexual aggression and prevention education program.
  • Orientation Diversity Presentation: A cultural diversity program for college students.
  • College Life and the Law: Isabella County Police departments present safety education.
