Dear 2017 Graduate,

The 28th Annual Chicano/Latino Graduation Celebration (CLGC) will take place on Sunday, May 21, 2017 in the Walter Pyramid. Due to the increase in the numbers of Latino graduates, we will host two celebrations: Morning Session at 10:00 am and Evening Session at 4:00 pm.  Students may choose which session to participate in on a first-come, first-serve basis when registering. Over the past 27 years, the Chicano/Latino students at Long Beach State have come together to celebrate and highlight the educational accomplishments, cultura, comunidad, and familia.   

The registration cost is $35.00 per graduate, payable in cash only. REGISTER and PAY, by 5:00 pm on Friday, April 21st.

Each graduate receives:

  • Two Complimentary Guest Tickets (6 additional tickets can be purchased for $4.00 each)
  • Ten Graduation Announcements with envelopes
  • CLGC Sash
  • Certificate of Participation
  • Grad Gift

Each graduate is given two complimentary guest tickets with registration. In addition, a maximum of 6 tickets may be purchased at the time of registration. Graduates are encouraged to purchase their 6 tickets at the time of registration. Tickets can only be purchased once, when you register. You must decide how many tickets you want to purchase when you register. Tickets are $4.00 each and must be purchased by cash only.

  • Graduates may also purchase 10 additional announcements with envelopes for $8.00

Note: Please be aware that this is very popular celebration and every year we reach capacity. We recommend that you register as soon as possible to be able to purchase up to 6 tickets.
