Beach Connection Fall 2019
We’re breaking new ground with the Fall 2019 edition of Beach Connection by moving to a digital medium that will bring more dynamic content to a wider alumni audience and take another step on our university’s path to a climate-neutral campus by 2030.
And speaking of groundbreaking – campus leaders and longtime alumni supporters enjoyed a well-earned celebration on Sept. 28 with a champagne toast to the Anna W. Ngai Alumni Center, which has officially broken ground and will begin construction in early 2020. At last, the future on-campus home for alumni has found its permanent location! The Alumni Center will enshrine seven decades of Cal State Long Beach history and provide space for innovative new alumni events and programming. We can’t wait to welcome all alumni to campus to enjoy this fabulous addition.
Serendipitously, the Alumni Center broke ground on the 70th anniversary of our university and heralded the first annual celebration of Founders Day, which commemorates the day that classes first convened in 1949.
Time, energy, advocacy; CSULB Alumni members share the stories that inspire lifelong pride and support for their alma mater.
