Student Success Seminars

2021 Freshman Celebration

Welcome to the Freshman Celebration 2021!

The Freshman Celebration is an annual CSUN event that showcases work created by first-time freshmen enrolled in University 100 during the fall semester at Cal State Northridge. The event usually has a dual format with traditional projects displayed on-site at the showcase and digital projects displayed online using Portfolium. Portfolium is a digital portfolio network that students can use throughout their college career and beyond to showcase their work, projects, and activities. Due to the virtual environment of the fall 2021 semester, all projects will be displayed using Portfolium.

The 15th Freshman Celebration was held November 29 to December 2, 2021.
