Beach Connection Magazine : Fall 2017 Spring 2017 - Page 2

• Welcome Your Association at Work Beach Family Day ■ DUFRENE The CSULB Alumni Association has heard the call of Beach fans, students and alumni alike urging for an event at an LA Dodgers game. That’s why we are bring- ing you the first annual Beach Family Day @Dodger Stadium on April 4 to watch the LA team as it takes on the San Diego Padres. For two years in a row, more than 4,000 Beach family members attended this event at Angel Stadium…now it’s time to show us how many Beach Dodgers fans will come out! For more details, visit www.csulb.com/alumni/events. Your Association was at this year’s Multi-University Alumni Career Fair at USC on March 10. Last year, The Beach had the third highest number of attendees just after USC and UCLA, and was one of only two CSUs represented! The event featured more than 100 employers from various industries wanting to hire graduates from top-tier universities. Some recruiters included: AT&T, E&G Gallo Winery, Kaiser Permanente, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. President’s Message In the last couple of years, the Alumni Association has increased its efforts to en- gage with more alumni and friends in various ways. I thank you for responding and demon- strating your support to our alma mater. Students and alumni from various fields, interests and backgrounds have been paired in the past six months with the launch of our mentoring program. Students have jumped at this chance to consult with seasoned Beach graduates who can share their guidance on resumes, interview skills, industry knowledge and grad school.
