Spring 2012 Outreach Activities to High Schools and Community Colleges

To have a high quality pool of incoming students to CBA, we have increased our outreach activities to all potential applicants: high school and community college students, as well as to non-business students on our campus, who may be interested in majoring or minoring in our programs. To this end, we have and will be engaged in the following activities, with participation of representatives from all our departments, centers, and student organizations, with cooperation of University Outreach and School Relations.

Transfer Students

  • Advisors from our Advising Center have participated at the Transfer Fairs at Long Beach City College, LBCC at PCH, Rio Hondo College, El Camino College, Cypress College, Orange Coast College; and will be participating at East Los Angeles College and Santa Monica College in the coming weeks. Our advisors will be also participating at the National Association of Admissions Counselors’ Fairs in Anaheim and Ontario Convention Centers and at Pasadena Civic Center later in April. 
  • Our department chairs and directors from our centers together with associate deans and president of ABSOC met with the faculty and counselors from Orange Coast College on March 16th to explain our offerings. A similar meeting is planned with business faculty and counselors from other major feeder community colleges for April 27th.
  • The admitted transfer students will be personally invited by the Dean to a Preview Day on May 12th to encourage them to choose CBA.
  • Our departments and Advising Center advisors will participate at the Majors Fair on campus to publicize our options and minor programs on April 4th.

First Year Students

  • Admitted first year students are personally invited by the Dean for a April 14 Preview Day to present what CBA and CSULB can offer to them.
