The event raises money for scholarships awarded to CSUB alumni pursuing their graduate degree on campus and for the `Runner Alumni Mentor Program, which matches up professionals with students who need help joining the workforce.

The Alumni Association awards thousands of dollars in scholarships each year, including $7,000 to three students this past spring. Most of these students are the first in their families to graduate from college, have overcome incredible life obstacles and are pursuing careers that impact entire communities.

You can read some of their stories for yourself.

Our mentor program has matched 206 student mentees with 191 alumni and other mentors over the last three semesters, and the result is nothing short of transformational for many. We’ve collected -- and you can read – stories of students landing jobs and internships, shining brighter in interviews, making professional connections and finding confidence they didn’t know they had after their participation.

Taking place at CSUB’s Alumni Park, this year’s Party has a “Halloween Nights” theme. We hope you’ll dress up, connect with friends and make new ones, bid on silent auction items and snap photos in our photo booth, to be stocked with Halloween props.

General admission tickets cost $50 before the event and $60 at the door. CSUB faculty, staff, student and alumni tickets cost $45. If you’d like to volunteer at Party for part of the event, you can buy a ticket for $25 with no additional fees.

Tickets are available at Attendees must be 21 and older.
