March 23, 2011 — CSU Bakersfield will host its annual free veterans information day on Saturday, April 9 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Albertson Room, located adjacent to the Doré Theatre on the CSUB campus.
The event is geared toward veterans attending community colleges who may wish to pursue a four-year college degree. The program also gives discharged veterans and active-duty students an opportunity to explore and learn how to continue their educational journey at CSUB.
"CSUB will be joining forces with all community colleges in our service region to make this program as successful as possible," said Steve Watkin, CSUB's director of university outreach. "Through this collaboration, we can do a better job serving our Kern County veterans."
The event will begin with a continental breakfast at 9 a.m., followed by presentations about the new G.I. Bill, admissions, financial aid, scholarships and career opportunities. Lunch will be served at noon, followed by a campus tour.
Registration to the free event must be made by Tuesday, April 5 via email at email@example.com or by calling (661) 654-3138. Parking is free in lots B and C.
