THE HISTORY

During the 1960s, CSULB hosted more than 100 Cambodian exchange students who participated in a USAID program to learn industrial skills. Among them was San Ramjek who came to Long Beach State as a student in 1962, explaining that the first Cambodian Student Association was organized at CSULB in 1959.

In December 1975, it was incorporated as a non-profit organization and renamed the Cambodian Association of America (C.A.A.), now known as Cambodian Student Society (CSS).

THE PRESENT

With the help of CSULB professor and CSS faculty advisor, Dr. Teri Yamada, CSS has been very successful in providing services to fellow students and the community as a whole. Every year, during the Cambodian New Year, CSS takes great efforts to proudly organize and host a cultural show for the community in order to promote friendship, understanding and awareness of the Khmer culture today. This year, in 2014, signifies our 30th annual show at the Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center.

To recognize all the Cambodian graduates of CSULB, CSS hosts an annual graduation ceremony to celebrate their achievements in completing their degrees. Deadline for graduates to register is Friday, May 2nd.

The event is free for all. Family and friends are more than welcome to join in on the celebration at the Soroptimist House on Saturday, May 10th, 6:30pm - 9:30pm.
