Bienvenida is an annual Latino STEM student and family welcome event held at CSULB. The event provides CSULB with the opportunity to engage STEM CSULB parents, students, and family members in bilingual culturally relevant education activities. The goal is to better inform audience members and create the social support necessary for STEM academic success. STEM professionals from the CSULB campus and the industry join us every year to share their journeys with you! The event is free of charge and held every Fall semester!
This year the program will be virtual. See program details below.
