CSU Campuses to Welcome Asian and Pacific Islander Parents and Students at College Expo, on June 1
May 28, 2013
The California State University will host a Journey to Success College Expo at CSU Dominguez Hills, to inform Asian American and Pacific Islander families about the steps to college.
The event to be held on June 1, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., will convene at CSUDH’s Toro Dome gymnasium. The event is free but registration is encouraged. Interested families and groups may register on the web at the Journey to Success site.
“Middle and high school students are urged to join us at CSUDH with their families to begin a personal journey to college success,” said CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White. “College completion across all Asian American and Pacific Islander communities is essential to California’s and the nation’s economic, social and cultural prosperity.”
During the College Expo, participants will receive bilingual posters and booklets with information about how to get to college, in English and in several other languages, including Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Tongan, Samoan and Cambodian. Printable copies of these handouts may be downloaded in this website.
Workshop presenters will provide information about how to qualify for admission to the CSU and how to plan to pay for tuition and other expenses associated with college life.
The event will also offer special panels about career possibilities. A presentation by AAPI professionals about their experiences in their chosen fields also will be offered.
During the college fair, participants will have the opportunity to meet and develop relationships with admissions and outreach staff from several of the CSU’s 23 campuses.
The event is organized by the CSU Asian American and Pacific Islander Initiative in collaboration with CSU Long Beach, CSU Dominguez Hills, CSU Los Angeles and CSU Fullerton. Organizers are promoting the event at schools and community centers in several communities of Orange County, Long Beach, San Gabriel Valley, Los Angeles, North Hollywood and the South Bay area.
