American Studies Student Activities
The American Studies Student Association is a student organization that plans extracurricular programs and events related to American Studies. For information contact Brett Mizelle, director of American Studies, or look for the website of the American Studies Student Association on Facebook under “American Studies Student Association at the Beach.”
Every semester American Studies students are invited to go on a field trip to important cultural sites in Los Angeles. For example, every Spring a group of students in American Studies and History takes the Blue Line for a walking tour of Olvera Street, downtown Los Angeles and the Watts Towers. In the Fall semester students visit The Museum of Jurassic Technology and the Center for Land Use Interpretation in Culver City. Other field trips take place depending on what exhibitions are up at local museums. Stay tuned to this website and to the “American Studies at the Beach” Facebook page for more details.
