As 2018 gets underway, ASI continues to stand up for undocumented students on campus and those affected by the uncertain future of DACA since its rescission last year. ASI will continue to offer resources and support for students affected throughout the coming semester and year.
First off, I want to thank Vice President Musman and the Senate for allowing me to deliver the Fall 2017 State of the Associated Students address. As a former senator, I know the hard work that goes into fulfilling the duties of your positions. You face the challenges that accompany the positions you hold, and you continue to overcome adversity in your personal lives as students of Long Beach State.
I think I speak for all of us when I say the past several weeks have been both disheartening and hopeful. I was pleased to see so many people and organizations stand up to Harvey Weinstein, Amazon's chief of programming Roy Price, and the many other offenders in the stories shared through the #metoo social media movement.
As the academic year comes to a close, many students are beginning their search for a summer job and/or internship. To help make the search a bit less daunting, ASI wanted to offer students some quick tips to help boost their chances. ASI Communications Assistant Daniel Sunkari sat down with Peggy Murphy, a program coordinator with the Career Development Center (CDC), to develop these five pieces of advice.
As the academic year comes to a close, I hope each of you were able to accomplish the goals you set for yourself. Whether it was getting that GPA you were aiming for, asking out that special someone you’ve been crushing on, joining a life-changing student organization, landing that job or simply getting through the year – I hope your year was one full of positive experiences.
All sustainability teams on campus and environment-friendly clubs are coming together for Earth Week 2017 to showcase everything CSULB does to be a sustainable, greener campus. Throughout the week, different programs will give students the chance to engage with sustainability—from screen-printing clothes to a whole eco-fair!
Thank you to all those who voted and participated in any way in the 2017 ASI Government Elections! With the results in, we’re excited for the road ahead. This year’s election season boasted the first cycle in recent memory where there were no campaign complaints submitted by candidates and we are proud of our student candidates for running clean, ethical campaigns and representing the student body well.
