GOLDEN FACULTY - I saw the Engineering School move from the barracks to the buildings we now have, helping the State College become a University, and the Mechanical Engineering Department to get national accreditation. My experiences at CSULB can only be described as wonderful.
John Shaak
GOLDEN FACULTY - Among the many memorable experiences was being promoted from Associate to Full Professor at age 38 and receiving thoughtfully written responses from President Steve Horn to my detailed sabbatical leave follow-up reports.
Ralph Rodgers
GOLDEN GRADUATE - CSCLB prepared me for a great career with the LA County Probation Department as a Probation Officer in 1970. I found my experience at the college both enriching and a fun time in my life.

GOLDEN GRADUATE - I was able to learn management skills, how to allocate funds, time management, hard work, prioritization, networking and living/working with diverse individuals.  Thinking for myself, goal setting/achievement, working within committees and being bold while taking the initiative.

GOLDEN GRADUATE - All of the jobs like North American Aviation working on the Apollo program through CSCLB helped me gain experience. It was my Industrial Design major that taught me to think, problem-solve and be creative enough to develop my own T-’shirt business. I learned that for every problem there is a solution.
