It’s gratifying to hear how CSULB influenced readers’ lives, so here are some excerpts from recent Beach Magazine correspondence.
Sonja (Ferreras) Sullivan ’79, accountancy, wrote about her path to finding her true calling as an artist.
What a great magazine! It brought me to tears….I am one of those students whose life changed after earning my accounting degree. I am a first generation university graduate in my family. Now I am passionate about art (just like Jobel Medina is about dance)….
I am grateful to CSULB for allowing me to be a productive member in society at a pay scale that was prosperous. And even more, I am grateful that the second article in your magazine is about someone following their passion because ‘it just makes (them) happy.’
Martin J. Fox ’69, B.A.; ’73, M.A., history, outlined his fascinating career that included studying for Catholic priesthood, teaching, and being a supervisor at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Van Nuys.
I truly loved my time at California State University, Long Beach. The teachers were absolutely superb, and the academic milieu was, in my opinion, first-rate and ever so beneficial….
Thank you, CSULB. You truly allowed Martin Fox to grow and to become a better person because of the time which he spent within your wise and nurturing arms. You are an integral part of this man, and I cannot thank you enough for that.
We’d love to hear from you, too, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 562.985.2582.
Anne (Junak) Ambrose ’76, ’90
