CSUB Homecoming

CSU Hill Day 

CSU Hill Day is a briefing in Washington D.C. in the Spring of each year. Alumnus Congressman Kevin McCarthy (BS Marketing ’89, MBA ’94) has been a gracious host in past years. In 2013 President Mitchell was honored while to introduce Majority Whip and Congressmen Kevin McCarthy to address the full CSU delegation. His presentation was regarded as outstanding and well-received. Dr. Mitchell and CSUB continues to advocate for the CSU System Priorities, a summary of which is available here.

CSU Bakersfield continues to strengthen their relationship with the east coast CSUB alumni. Each year a reception and dinner is held for CSUB alumni in the D.C. area and a CSU alumni reception in New York.  

Photos from this event are available here.

Hall of Fame

In 2006, the Alumni Association along with university President Horace Mitchell created the CSU Bakersfield Alumni Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is intended to recognize alumni who have made significant contributions in their chosen field of endeavor and/or in their community, and whose accomplishments and careers have brought honor and distinction to the university. We recognize these outstanding alumni annually at a black-tie gala (the first one was in 2007). 

Much research and time is taken each year to select the Hall of Famers and it has become a well-respected award to receive. Please take the time to look over the recent CSUB Hall of Famers.
