As one of the West’s top three master’s level universities, Cal State Long Beach continues to be one of the state’s most highly desirable campuses. Its outstanding faculty and state-of-the-art facilities provide students with an exceptional educational experience that is increasingly valued by employers and top doctoral and professional degree programs.
Much of this excellence is made possible through the generous support of CSULB’s alumni and friends. Departments and programs—from the arts to the sciences, as well as the library, athletics, and student scholarships and activities—all benefit from donors who demonstrate their Beach Pride.
Now it’s easier than ever to support your favorite Cal State Long Beach program by donating through the university’s safe and secure online giving Web site.

Leave your legacy at The Beach by adding your name to the Alumni Brick Plaza. Since 1996, the plaza has grown to display the names, degrees and graduation years of over 2,500 donors who, through their generosity, have made scholarships, grants, emergency loans and special alumni programming a reality. This past year, the Alumni Brick Plaza contributed to the completion of a $1 million endowment to the President’s Scholars program.
The Alumni Brick Plaza is located at the center of six walkways radiating in all directions of campus, making it possible for students to appreciate the legacy that has preceded them. Bricks may also be purchased for, or in memory of, family members who received their degrees from CSULB.
Donors to the plaza will receive a digital photograph of their brick after it has been inscribed.
Engraved bricks are $100 each. For information about the Alumni Brick Plaza, call the Alumni Association at 562/985-5252, or log onto www.csulb.edu/alumni, Services and Programs.
