Call to Action ■ Thank a professor ■ Professors impact and enrich lives both inside and outside the classroom through their academic knowledge, but also with their lasting words of wisdom. What impacts has a professor made in your life? Take 10 minutes out of your day to express your gratitude to a Beach professor that stood out while you were a student. For current faculty members, you can find their email address at www.csulb.edu/directory. If they are no longer at CSULB, email us at alumni@csulb. edu with your message and the name of the professor with department, and we send your note if we have the profes- sor’s contact information. ■ Volunteer at commencement Join your Alumni Association to celebrate the 2017 com- mencement ceremonies and welcome the newest Beach graduates!
