Kaleidoscope 2006 Held on April 29

One of Southern California’s most popular family-oriented festivals since 1985, Kaleidoscope, will take place Saturday, April 29, from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. at CSULB. As always, admission and parking are free for this campus-wide event.

This colorful annual get together attracts some 30,000 individuals throughout the day with activities from one end of the campus to the other and more than 100 clubs and vendor booths.

Among this year’s scheduled activities are Engineering Day, where visitors can learn about engineering science; the Mobile Science Museum, with fun educational activities; Earth Day, featuring representatives from the Los Cerritos Wetlands Trust, Long Beach Animal Control and the Sierra Club; a Health Fair, featuring the CSULB Radiation Therapy Student Association and the American Lung Association; the Multicultural Village and International Marketplace, boasting a wide variety of foods, arts and crafts, handmade and costume jewelry, and entertainment; the KaleidoKarnival, with game booths for children of all ages; and the Alumni Pavilion, displaying the CSULB historic memorabilia tent. In addition, because of their popularity, fruit smoothies served in whole pineapples will be available at the Tropical Islands booth.

CSULB’s Open House 2006, which is for admitted first-time freshmen and transfer students, will also be held on that Saturday beginning at 8 a.m. in The Walter Pyramid. Prospective students are invited to an orientation, after which, participants can attend a variety of informative workshops such as financial aid and campus life; attend academic college showcases; and participate in a student-support services fair which will take place in the University Student Union Building. Following the open house, participants are invited to take part in Kaleidoscope.

Individuals interested in the Open House may register by calling the Office of University Outreach and School Relations at 562/985-5358. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
