CSUB Announces Spring Festivities

California State University, Bakersfield has welcomed 2019 with the largest enrollment in campus history and a great lineup up of exciting events that will engage the community and lead us into commencement later this spring. Our University continues to excel academically and athletically.

Our amazing community continues to support CSUB by attending campus events, Kegley Institute of Ethics lectures, theater performances, athletics events, and provides generous funding to our Foundation in support of our programs and scholarships.

As part of our continued investment in our community, we look forward to a robust lineup of weeklong community-centered events leading up to the Investiture of the University’s 5th President.

CSU Bakersfield has long celebrated the sound of Bakersfield. This year, the President’s Investiture reception will celebrate the Taste of Bakersfield. The weeklong series of Investiture events will take the place of the Bakersfield Jazz Festival and will bring a new focus and showcase our community’s unique and amazing flavors.

This May, we also will celebrate our annual Spring BBQ and host our 49th annual commencement ceremony honoring our newest and largest group of graduates as they conclude their academic goals at CSUB.

In the coming months, CSUB will continue building a new strategic plan and frame our University’s first comprehensive capital campaign that will lead us into planning a yearlong series of events to celebrate our 50th anniversary.

We are excited to continue evolving and connecting with our community. CSU Bakersfield remains committed to providing outstanding service to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and community.
