Long Beach State Students:
Over the past several weeks Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) has been evaluating the use of the University Student Union (USU) and Student Rec & Wellness Center (SRWC) through focus groups with various student stakeholders. We are looking to learn what students like about the USU and SRWC now and what students want to see in the future to better serve their needs. In an effort to expand the conversation, we are launching a student-body-wide survey to make sure all student voices are heard.
If you’ve walking around the second floor of the USU recently, you may have noticed the brand new chairs, tables and seating arrangements. A project that’s been in the works since last year, the USU Board of Trustees are proud to unveil the brand new USU furniture!
Last spring, Associated Students Senate passed a resolution that formally requested that Long Beach State retire the mascot Prospector Pete. And after meeting with students, staff, administration and alumni, President Conoley announced on Sept. 20, 2018, that Prospector Pete would no longer represent Long Beach State University as the official mascot.
