The Carillon Award and Carillon Society are named in honor of the Carlson Bloc Bell Tower on campus. In 1965, the International Sculpture Symposium contributed nine monumental pieces and designs to CSULB. These works received credits in 21 national and international publications, and, in 1972, additional community funds in the form of a trust provided for the completion of the Carlson Memorial Tower, designed by French sculptor Andre Bloc.
The Carillon Society honors donors who have contributed $100,000 or more in outright gifts, pledges and irrevocable trusts to California State University, Long Beach.
