About the CSULB Alumni Association


Following the graduation of the first class from what was then Long Beach State College, an Alumni Association was formed in the fall of 1951. The CSULB Alumni Association was created to assist and advance the alumni in the pursuit of excellence, continue the friendships formed in the university, build strong and mutually beneficial ties between the university and its diverse alumni, promote goodwill in the community and create a dynamic alumni program that will stimulate interest, build loyalty, increase involvement and generate support for the university.

The board of directors are dedicated volunteers who oversee the programs of the Alumni Association and serve as ambassadors for the University.

The Alumni Association is supported by professional staff who are employees of the university. The staff serves as the university liaison to execute its policies and programs, and advises directors on how to work best with the university for the mutual benefit of all.

Alumni are invited to share suggestions or questions with the Board of Directors regarding the Association at or by calling 562-985-5252 (toll-free at 888-883-0007).
