The mission of the CSULB Anna W. Ngai Alumni Center is to provide a welcoming place for CSULB alumni and friends to socialize, reminisce and reconnect with The Beach.

The Alumni Center will soon be the new icon on the California State University, Long Beach campus. In addition to serving as a gathering spot and welcoming point of entry to the 285,000+ alumni from around the world, the Center will also furnish a one-of- a-kind special-event space for community and campus groups.

But the remarkable story of the institution originally called “Los Angeles-Orange County State College” will exude the proud traditions of our alma mater, our notable alumni and encourage all visitors to reflect on CSULB’s extraordinary growth and emergence as a nationally recognized leader in student centered education.

The establishment of a multi-purpose Alumni Center will accelerate this forward momentum and help the university build on the success of its first 60 years by:

  • Strengthening alumni relations and accommodating the expansion of a progressive alumni program;
  • Serving as a welcoming campus portal and as an in-demand event and conference space;
  • Celebrating the university’s rich history and honoring a long tradition of academic, artistic, and athletic excellence;
  • Showcasing the extraordinary contributions of CSULB alumni, near and far, and paying tribute to those who made this campus the exceptional institution it is today; and
  • Inspiring, facilitating, and sustaining alumni involvement with and support of CSULB.

The alumni center will be funded through private contributions. Construction will begin when all funds have been secured, with groundbreaking anticipated for summer 2017. Several donors have already stepped forward to support the project, bringing the total amount raised to more than one-third of the approximately $12 million overall budget.
