The Disorientation Guide is a radical resource published by an open collective and distributed for free at the beginning of Fall quarter. It’s for new students, for the Santa Cruz community, and for everyone who wants to get more informed, active, or involved in the radical history of the campus and the rich networks of organizations and coalitions at UCSC and in Santa Cruz.

Welcome to the Disorientation Guide!

You have just stepped foot into the land of UC Santa Cruz, and with this first flip of the page, stumbled upon an introduction to the side of this school that you might have heard of but won’t find in your glossy orientation materials. This guide is designed as a resource for you in discovering the creative, radical communities and projects that thrive here in Santa Cruz. It’s true that these things are a big part of what makes our campus unique, but it’s not always easy to find them. More importantly, the radical spaces here will only exist as long as we keep on creating them. So if you’re interested in connecting to this world, hopefully this guide will be a helpful place to start.

This is the fourth consecutive year that the Disorientation Guide has been distributed on this campus, adding to the lineage of others, published in 1977, 1982, and 1984. Similar guides are also circulated at universities such as Berkeley, MIT, Yale, U of Texas, Austin, and Concordia, among many others. It was baked lovingly by a collective of students who are excited to see new faces joining us in our tradition of thoughtful resistance.

This Guide is:
- An introduction to issues that affect our campus and communities
- An attempt to strengthen local activists
- A call for direct action and radical change for social justice

It includes:
- Articles by students/activists
- Descriptions of campus orgs and contact info for getting involved
- Tools for rockin' the boat
- And even sex advice!!!
